Bottle from Alesela
Very pale straw...clear..frothy dense white head...good lacing
Aroma - sweet grapefruit citrus hops...light grapefruit zest...sweet pale malts...fresh....light tangerine...sweet citrus fruits
Taste - lots of grapefruit...pithy...zesty bitterness...background of sweet juicy pale malts...very well balanced...refreshing...not complex but a lot of flavour...great grapefruit taste
Palate - soft carb....quite puckering bitterness...medium body....light soft soapy texture....strong citrus tang. Finish - zesty grapefruit bitterness...lingers a bit then cleans well off palate
Overall - This is one of the best, if not the best Scottish golden ale....very quaffable

BeerBaboon (1597) - FINLAND - FEB 17, 2012
Vaalena kultainen olut, jonka päälle muodostuu valkoinen vaahto. Kerros vaahtoa sinnittelee loppujen lopuksi oluen pinnalla hyvin pitkään. Tuoksu on Sitruksinen ja kukkea. Maussa on sitrusta, keksiä ja mallasta. Katkeruus iskee nopeasti. Jättää kuivan tuntuman suuhun. Maukas ja raikas olut.
