Godfather50 (197) - 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.

Bottle. Golden beer with a strong white head. The aroma is dry and hopped with some toffee'ness, and the flavour is dry and bitter with good floral hopness, and toffee. Overall a nice golden ale. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

mighty_meadow (308) - Kilwinning, SCOTLAND - AUG 1, 2014
500ml bottle from tesco Looks highly carbonated when pouring but the fizz is thankfully gentler. Keeps a decent head though. Quite earthy in aroma and taste. Like sticking your head out of a tent in the middle of a field at dawn. Quite hoppy finish but not as grapefruity as some other ales Gets more interesting as you get further down the glass. Nice one.

Cask at the Woodshed, Coylumbridge. Thin white head with lots of lacing, golden amber body. Great fruity nose of citrus and berries. Malt and hops complement each other well then the bitterness takes over for a lasting aftertaste, biscuitty and crisp. Mouthfeel is thin and no carbonation but this helps to make this beer exceptionally easy to drink.

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.

500ml bottle Tesco. Hazy pale golden colour. Sweetness if caramel and biscuits from the pale malts with thorough hopping adding a floral bitterness. Good session ale, plenty flavour
