sm89walt (1751) - Northern Beaches, Sydney, AUSTRALIA - MAY 24, 2011
Cask (gravity) - The Fat Cat, Norwich. Loose, medium sized white head atop a clear golden yellow body. Peach, tangerine and a decent lingering lemony hop bitterness with a splash of lime. Lovely sweet and juicy citrus & floral hop aromas. Good peppery notes running throughout. Light to medium body, good carbonation, quite firm on the palate. Finishes with a lingering bitterness and a light dryness.

Golden ale with slight haze. Some head. Smells like American hops - maybe citra. Pine and grapefruit nose. Bitter and long-lasting finish. Structure and texture as expected zingy finish.

Blairgus (2568) - California, USA - MAR 13, 2011
very pale yellow, faintly hazy and few bubbles straw and aroma hops on the nose that i first thought was a bit skunky thin body and slightly fizzy not fun, exciting or interesting at all, but a great all around drinking beer. slightly more hops than piper’s gold nice

[cask at Thomson’s, Edinburgh] Fyne Ales are one of Scotland’s most under-rated breweries, and Avalanche is their outstanding beer. When kept and served well on cask it’s the quintessential session beer – golden and clear with a decent head retention. Fantastic aromas of soft, grassy hops with a backbone of fruit. On the palate the flavours are subtly bitter hops with a wonderful citrus flavour, leading to a moreish bitter aftertaste from the malt. One of the very best Scottish beers, and any pub I walk into with this on, I know what I’m having before I reach the bar [03032009]
