Our latest seasonal a copper coloured ale, with a fantastic hop profile. Wil thinks it may be our best beer this year - but there’s some stiff competition for that title!

Cask at CBC CG, London. It pours a clean dark golden color with a medium white head. Aroma is lightly fruity and medium grassy leafy with hoppy pine cones and resin. Taste is also mildly sweet upfront and then turns bitter and finally astringent with notes of resin pine cones citrus peel and dried leaves. Medium bodied with soft carbonation. Overall, very tasty

Cask @ CBC Clerkenwell. The pour’s light amber with a small white head. The nose light summery fruits, some apricot spread and general grains. The taste is sweet cereal, more light, fruity malts. Nice accents of berry. Soft body, pleasant stuff. Overall, quite nice.

jamestulloch (3494) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - NOV 9, 2012
Aroma: Clean but difficult to discern. Some grain and citrus.

Appearance: Clear amber body with a dense off-white head. No carbonation. Good lacing.

Taste: Typical Fyne Ales ’bright’ hoppy taste. A little bit earthy and soapy with some white wine characteristics. Quite hoppy for a bitter. Lingering bitter finish.

Palate: Medium body with a slightly oily texture. Flat carbonation.

Overall: Another delicious beer from arguably Scotland’s best brewery. One of the lightest, hoppiest bitters I’ve tasted.

Cask handpull at Craft. Deep clear gold colour collar of whote bubbles. Sweaty sox hops on this. Its an ok bitter but no where near Fynes best.
