tombyars (1589) - Saltcoats, SCOTLAND - OCT 12, 2011
Tasted this bitter in the Last Post, Paisley in January 2008. Cask, handpump dispense. Clear pale straw in colour with a thick white head. Citric lime note in the short floral aroma. Thin mouthfeel and good lacing. Pale malt gives a juicy zesty flavour of lemon peel and tart grapefruit. Dry dusty hops in the bitter aftertaste compliment the malt well. Refreshing bitter finish with a citric dryness. A typical summer session blond ale.

Cask. A hazy golden beer with a lazing white head. The aroma has notes of citrusy hops on a lightly malty background. The flavor is sweet malty with light notes of straw, leading to a bitter finish.

Cask. Orangeish golden colour, small white head. Aroma is eggy, wooden, nectary, earthy and quite vegetably. Flavour is very similar with the earthyness being dominating. Also some more fruits and wood than in the aroma.

Cask - West Gate Inn (JDW), Canterbury. A golden orange colour with a fine, lasting white head. Completely sulphuric aroma. Sulphur again dominates on the tongue with some toasted malts in the background. Finishes with a decent grassy bitterness. Quite muddy on the palate, light to medium carbonation and a thinnish body.
