Citrus aroma, not too overpowering. Pours a golden colour with a small white head. Bitter hoppy taste. Medium body, light texture, soft carbonation with a bittersweet aftertaste. I like this and many other Fyne Ales, nice to have such a quality brewery so close to home :-)

BlackHaddock (5730) - Shropshire, ENGLAND - AUG 17, 2015
13th Aug 2015: cask pint in The Wellington, Ayr, Scotland. Poured a clear,light golden colour with a weak white topping. Aroma leads with citrus notes, as does the taste, pine, grass and floral traces complete both the nose and flavours. A little sweetness from the malts, but a mildly bitter finish ensures the hops rule the brew really. Not a lot of body depth and bordering on watery.

sudomorph (1026) - Barrie, Ontario, CANADA - JUL 3, 2015
Real ale at the Plockton Inn. Pours a clear golden colour with a thin, white head. Aroma has notes of citrus, slight resin, pine, grass, floral, and a slight skunk. Taste is balanced but slightly bitter. Grass, slight caramel, floral, citrus, and a drawn out, earthy grass ending. Medium body with a low carbonation. Clean and a bit watery in the mouth with a dry finish.
