Bottle. Pours hazy lightish amber with airy white head. Clear aroma of malt and fruit, possibly elderflower, with some estery notes. Bitter, hoppy flavour with notes of needles and fruit and touches of malt and yeast. Lingering, bitter aftertaste. Very nice and refreshing on a hot summer’s day.

zimbo (754) - SCOTLAND - MAY 3, 2015
Bottle fresh from, the brewery. Crisp golden colour with a brilliant white heap. A bit robust and husky at first before settling down to a pleasurable refreshing palate cleaner. Not overly complex but certainly quenching.

On Cask at the Royal Oak ( whilst listening to various impromptu folky numbers from random punters on guitars etc at 1am) Pours light golden. Citrus hoppy aroma. Chunky hop character. Pine. Biscuit. Pale malts. Nice big IBU. Fresh. Refreshing. Delicious cask ale.
