Fumbling for superlatives...one of the most delectable specimens It’s been my pleasure to sample recently. Rarely re-order the same beer of an evening, but had to make an exception for this. Hazy straw settling into clear gold. Creamy white froth. Spicy hops, vanilla, honey, bread. Beautifully balanced ale.

Cask@Northern Bar, Edinburgh.
Pale yellow, creamy off-white head. Sweetish and honeyish hoppy nose. Starts watery and a sweet fruity. Then very good grassy hoppy flavor, which even multiplies in the aftertaste.

I don’t usually like the lighter ales, but I was convinced by the landlord of the Cellar Bar in St Andrews, that I should try. I wasn’t disappointed. Lots of fruity aroma, carried through into the taste, citrusy, got the elderflower too. Very hoppy, lasts well.

NIce flavour, but too bitter to be a blonde perhaps, but it is some times sweet, nice beer in few words, bubbling head.

a sim rate: (on tap at Battersea Beer Festival) Very creamy in aroma and flavour. Very citric. Definitely grapefruit in there (though I read that in the booklet). Almost lavender in the flavour, vanilla, blackcurrant. Extremely dairy aftertaste.
