Pint at the Monks Retreat in Reading. Pale brown and clear, no gas, little head. No real aroma, hence 5/10. Nice, bitter and slightly sweet beer, got a little something to it. Aftertaste is a bit tart.

Cask at the Victoria station Wetherspoons. Hazy amber with a tight cream head; elderflower aroma; quite full-bodied with grainy flavour and some citrus; then a slightly cloying sour grain finish. Not very exciting.

3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
House cask at Cloisters. Been a while since I’ve had this one so thought I would give it a go after a heavy whiskey tasting a Big Steve’s. Pours a golden colour with a medium white head. Lots of elderflower aroma with some sweet malt in there. Elderflower flavour really works with lingering bitterness and a dry finish. A little thin but, otherwise, OK.

One of the best Scottish ales. A summer ale that has a pretty good flavour.

Cask at The Old Thameside Inn near London Bridge. Pours hazy gold with a foamy/frothy/creamy white head. Light fruit and citrus aromas. Refreshing. Mostly citrus flavor over mild malt. Finishes nicely bitter.

UPDATED: JAN 8, 2013 Re-rating on cask @ Portcullis, Stirling. This showed well on this occasion with a more balanced palate and overall more enjoyment.
Previous rating on 17/05/12 - 7+3+6+2+11 = 2,9
Tap @ Caley Sample Room. Pours golden orange, a few bubbles and good head. The nose is tight but there is some grapefruit pith and some pine. The taste is creamy and mildly floral. The palate is decently structured at the start but the texture is watery and the finish fades quickly. Overal a good session beer but it doesn’t live up to the initial nose. Drinkable!

Fruity edge combined with a nice hop bitterness to create a good, well-balanced beer. Nice session beer.

Pint @ Sir Walter Scott, Edinburgh airport.
Pleasant pint, full bodied, yet smooth - could be the sprinkler.
Flowers, honey, bittersweet finish.
