2.6 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
Golden colour, foamy white head. A bit disappointing on the hops here. Expected a bit more of it. Some malts in the flavour.

4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
UPDATED: AUG 15, 2008 Just the job yesterday. Hot balmy day here in Scotland (for a change) and I was sooo thirsty. This one hit the mark and so I gave it a big rating. Thist quenching hops in the aftertaste. Bit of malt and spices on the nose. I guess I must have landed lucky after looking at the other poorer reviews. Will need to get another rating sometime that I am not so dry and thirsty!! (bought from the wee gem that is ’Locketts’ in North Berwick)

2.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottled. at RBESG 2007. A golden beer with a thick orange head. The aroma is spicy, primarily carroway seeds combined with notes of hops. The flavor is quite light with notes of malt and spices, leading to a dry bitter finish. The body is thin.

1.7 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 5/20
Hazy golden, gentle white cover. Terribly grassy, sour nose. Flowery hops fail to cover the off-notes. It was explosive upon opening and the doubts were confirmed immediately upon sniffing. Stale watery palate. Very dubious bottling line in this brewery.

Bottle at RBESG 2007. Golden, bubbly off white head. It’s got some interesting fruit, fruit salad, bit of sherberty hop, jellied hoppiness. Kumquats, I think.

2.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 10/20
Bottle, RBESG Grand Tasting 07. Again, a never ending fountain of froth eventually subsided and permitted me to grab a glass of this. Blonde, thin white head. Nose is funky hop, some malty touches, floral dry hop tinge. Mouth is watery hoppy, some citrus. Very watery, no palate to speak of at all really. Slightly warm end.
