3.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 15/20
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.
