Tasting at the 18th Mondial de la bière, June 10, 2011. Honey gold, small head. Sweet hoppy aroma of peaches, hints of tea. Taste of herbs I guess local, slightly hoppy, slightly malty, not very bitter. Pretty tasty beer for the patio!

UPDATED: SEP 17, 2014 Bottle 500ml from Cross Stobs Bottle Stop, Barrhead. This really is an excellent bottled ale. Caramel with a bitter finish. Slightly more carbonation than I like, extremely enjoyable.
Doesn’t disappoint on cask, Hopinn, Newcasle under Lyme on 15/9/14.

Bottle sampled at Mondial de la bière 2011. Clear golden with a medium off-white head and good retention with nice lacing. Aroma is english pale malt, with citrusy and earthy notes. Flavor is nice english malt profile biscuity with slightly toasted notes and some citrusy hops with a mildly bitter finish. Medium body with a nice creamy mouthfeel.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
UPDATED: MAY 9, 2011 Bottle from Booth’s, Ilkley. Veiled bronze, creamy white top, soft mineral-drenched condition. Very Scottish aroma; shortbread, caramel-draped slate, shellfish, Jamaican ginger cake, soft insinuating dried fruit and flowers. All that pretty accurately captures the flavour, too- which oozes softly with dissolved stone and nectar. Utterly sinkable. Good as they are there’s so much more to Scottish beer than BrewDog...but WTF do I get to taste a Scotch (EDIT: Scottish) one?!

2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
50cl bottle. It pours and orange/amber colour - maybe lava is a closer description. There are gentle bubbles and a very generous head. The nose has grapefruits and a hint of honey. The taste has sweet malt, more grapefruit and a touch of toffee on the end. The palate shows a tastey medium-bodied beer with a fairly clean finish. Overall, a very sessionable beer if not a world-beater!

2.4 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
14th December 2010. At the Euston Tap with Harrisoni. Clear amber beer. Little white head. Smooth dry palate. Sublte toffee in the malt. Fairly bitter hop without much accompanying hop fruit. Finishes dry and bitter. Dry and bitter without much else going on - not my cup of char!

Bottle that my dad brought along, consumed 25.12.10 Pours light amber with a white bubbly head, quite neutral on the aroma front. There is a steady bitterness, standard sort of bitter but decent enough, finishing with a pleasant citrus bite. A6 A4 T6 P3 Ov13 3.2
