4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
UPDATED: JUN 13, 2015 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)..z.z.rerate June 2015. Just the same nice refreshing . Form head and just a remembered

50cl bottle from Gordon and MacPhail. Pours golden with a gentle bubbles and a nicely proportioned head. The nose has nettles and limes with just enough pale malt in the background. More limes and fresh greens on the taste. The palate is light to medium in body with a tangy texture and a long clean finish. Overall, a good beer and I’m really confused by the other ratings.

3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
(Bottle, Partick Farmers Market, Glasgow) Very malty, with an unremarkable nose, though is dark in colour and is very heavily hopped, with a very bitter aftertaste. Despite the claim from the makers that this is an ideal session beer, it is certainly good for one or two - and it certainly is ideal for a sunny day!

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle. Golden with a clear appearance and a small head. Some pleasant hoppiness but lacks body. Cant really see it as an IPA-more like a pretty weak bitter. Not one to search out.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle from Dobbies. Pours a murky, heavily sedimented orange with a slim white head. Pleasant, lightly buttered pine aroma. Clean and attractively soapy with light floral, lime jelly and piney hop. Husk and honey to finish. Good, but dirtied by bits as you hit the bottom, and pricey.
