2.8 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
First tasted this in The Three Judges, Glasgow in April 2004. Cask, handpump dispense. Clear pale amber in colour with a thin white head. Dry dusty hops and lemon peel in the short aroma. Thin resiny mouthfeel and superb lacing throughout. Pale malt base gives citric grapefruit flavours with a biscuity background. Dusty lemony hops add a dry bitter bite to the short aftertaste. Finish is on the tart bitter side with grapefruit peel evident. An ok session bitter for the summer.

Aroma is sweetish lightly honey malts with some floural hops. Taste is similar though weak, which is a bit disapointing, maybe past its best? Seems like more of a golden/blonde to me.
