tombyars (1607) - Saltcoats, SCOTLAND - SEP 25, 2016
Tasted this in the Salt Cot, Saltcoats (JDW) on the 17th September 2016. Cask, handpump dispense. Opaque straw in colour with a thin white head. Dry hops and fresh cut grass noted in the short floral aroma. Thin resiny mouthfeel and good lacing. Pale malt base gives a light biscuit base with a hint of tart greengage in the mouth. Floral hop resins give a dry bitter aftertaste adding increasing astringency. Finish is bitter with notes of pine resin and citrus fruit ending on the palate. Standard session Golden ale, alas nothing more.

29th July 2016: cask pint in my local Wetherspoons. Clear golden amber pour, white head and good lacing. Fruity esters with a light malty aroma, taste similar with semi-sweet malts blending with a mild citrus, tropical fruit flavour. Decent.

AshtonMcCobb (5396) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - JUL 3, 2013
On tap @ the Stockbridge Tap. Pours amber with a slight haze and a decent head. My general impressions were a little better than the other raters - nice appley fruit on the nose and taste while being quite balanced. This has got to come under Bitter in style, though.

Malty and slightly cloudey golden ale, both in aroma and in its taste. Next to no head.
