scotty (1040) - SCOTLAND - APR 15, 2010
A 5 litre minican (cask conditioned!) from Waitrose Ponteland. Very pale, thin white head, slightly hazy. Good nose of citrus fruit, palate is light and dominated by bitter hops, malt is barely noticable resulting in a thin zesty unbalanced brew. Easily quaffed but lacks character. Wont buy again.
