Scopey (10037) - 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.

Rune (9661) - Tromsø, NORWAY - DEC 2, 2013
500ml bottle bought at Kjeller 5 in Tromsø. Slightly hazy, pale golden body. Solid, frothy white head slowly reduced to a patchy layer. Spotty lacing left down the glassware. Fresh fruity hops on the nose. Lemony hops to the flavour profile together with a bite of semi-sweet malts. Basic dry bitter ending. Thin to medium bodied. Refreshing and easy to quaff. Pleasing (at home 30.11.2013).
