Godfather50 (74) - SCOTLAND - MAY 29, 2014
A refreshing pale ale that pours light gold fom the hand pump with a frothy head. Nice lattic as the head recess down the glass. The nose is fresh and zesty the malty balance is there. Akin to an IPA but without the dry palate. At 3.8 ABV it’s a great lunchtime pint served at Glenuig Inn by grumpy Steve.

DroolYeast (298) - Aalborg, DENMARK - MAY 15, 2014
Bottle in the wild. Earthy citra hops. Like sticking your nose down a bag of leaf hops! Clear golden colour with big white head. Small head is lasting. Quite bitter, dry, light sweetness. Finish is dry. Soapy texture. Light carbonation.

Scopey (7430) - Croydon, Greater London, ENGLAND - APR 30, 2014
Bottle from Tesco. It pours pale gold with a small white head. The nose is fresh, tropical fruits, light grain, five alive fruit juice and citrus peel. The taste is crisp, bitter, straw, grapefruit rind, lemon and peppery notes with a lingering bitter finish. Medium body and fine carbonation. Crisp, fresh, good level of bitterness and rather drinkable. One of the best Cairngorm offerings.

harrisoni (14138) - Ashford, Kent, ENGLAND - APR 30, 2014
Cask handpull at The Flower Pot Maidstone. Clear dark gold lasting head. Not really on but got what was left in the cask. No condition in the mouth. Some biscuit. Diacetyl aroma. Not good.

SaintMatty (5536) - Uppsala, SWEDEN - APR 28, 2014
500ml Bottle- Golden with a white head. Melon, peach and a hint of mandarin in the aroma. Lemon, peach, grapefruit and biscuity malt all feature in the refreshing taste.

Vighals (1401) - Sørumsand, NORWAY - MAR 26, 2014

allmyvinyl (4244) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - MAR 14, 2014
UPDATED: AUG 13, 2014 Cask at The White Lady JDW. Pours clear pale gold, thick white head. Aromas of lemon, dusty malt, stewed apple. Taste is light sweet. Medium body, clean finish. Better than the bottle. 500ml bottle from Tesco. Pours pale yellow, nice white head. Aromas are lemon cheesecake, light buttery, some lost tropicalia. Taste has an astringency, which leads to the finish not being entirely pleasant. Not a bitter in my book, more a blonde. 6/4/5/3/10 - 2.8

Hazy tan. Aroma is a bit buttery. Slightly fruity, still a bit buttery with a hint of pale malt sweetness.

OleR (4802) - Oslo, NORWAY - FEB 21, 2014
Bottle, picked up at Meny Oslo City. Shady straw to gold colored. Instantly dying white head. Subtle, inviting apple-fruity nose. Crisp and light. Fine acidolous fruit flavor. Restrained dry pale malts. Mild hoppy floral/fruity endnotes. A refreshing and easy drinkable bitter.
