COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
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!

Medium sweet flavor with semi-ripe citrus fruits, hay, moderate pale malts, light tangy fruits, lemon, faint berries, bread. Light bodied with fine carbonation. Great condition.

Cask at Craft Beer Co, Clerkenwell. Half pint shared with Finn. Fragile patches at the surface. Cloudy golden body. Smell of citrus hops. Flavoured with grapefruits, oranges and a backdrop of grainy malts. Rounded bitter endnotes. Standard for the style (London, 01.11.2012).

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 (1562) - 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.
