allmyvinyl (2941) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - MAY 15, 2014
Cask at Cloisters. Pours clear amber, thin white head. Light aromas of honey, malt, little else. Taste is a little on the soapy side. Thin and watery. Not great.

mr_h (2761) - Ayr, SCOTLAND - APR 30, 2014
Cask by hand-pump at Cafe Royal, Edinburgh - clear golden amber, thin white head, wheaty malty aroma, poor lacing, sour malty, resinous, prolonged malty aftertaste

kwik-lime (1264) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - MAR 21, 2014
On tap at Cafe Royal. Smooth session ale with light grassy hop. Taste was incredibly light, never could the description ’drinkable but boring’ be more apt. There might be no easier beer in the world to down a pint of, nor one easier to forget a week after you’ve drunk it.

AshtonMcCobb (2394) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - JAN 9, 2014
On tap at the Cafe Royal. Appearance - golden with a slight haze. Nice head. Nose - toasty. No hops coming through. Taste - honey and malt. Sine finishing astringency. Palate - light to medium bodied with a creamy texture and a fairly dry finish. Overall - certainly not a modern style pale ale.

Scottishchris (169) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - NOV 18, 2013
On tap at Cafe Royal. Pours crystal clear and very pale golden. White small head. Little to tell on the nose. Very light bitter taste, doesn't leave much. Fine and quenching but wouldn't go back for more. If I'd known it was brewed by Belhaven I wouldn't have bothered.

JorgeLee (1158) - Greater London, ENGLAND - SEP 15, 2013
Cask in the Cafe Royal, Edinburgh. Light golden colour. Another fairly bland inoffensive light golden bitter, quaffable and forgettable.

Imaena (1811) - Atlanta, Georgia, USA - JUN 9, 2013
Draught. This is a bitter that seems to be half baked. Its does not have the fine malt charecter or hopping i expect of a bitter.

Golden colour with small white head. Nice lacing. Very mild hoppy aroma. Medium body and a oily texture. Mild hoppy flavour with a nice bitter tail.
