jeevan (239) - SCOTLAND - SEP 29, 2015
On Cask in the Raeburn beergarden Stockbridge. Pours a slight haze golden. Nice citrus hoppy grassy aroma. Lovely creamy mouth feel. Delicious hoppy flavours. Balanced. Good bitterness; quite pronounced. Always a saviour in pubs that otherwise only have generic brews on. Solid

Nocturne (1805) - Cheshire, ENGLAND - SEP 24, 2015
Cask at Jack in the Box, Altrincham. Hazy light amber shade. White head. Notes conjuring up white fruits, underripe berries, straw, orange citrussy undercurrent. Quite dry at the finish. Solid body. Seems a well constructed pale ale with nice hop notes.

scotty (1152) - SCOTLAND - SEP 20, 2015
Bottle from Morrisons. Lovely looking beer, clean golden colour with a long lasting white head...nice lacework. Hops abound on the nose and palate, the 3.8 abv makes for a refreshing session brew that I’d be more than happy to quaff a few of, lovely stuff!

Aromas of citrus and losts of them, Pours a nice golden colour with a light white head. Tastes of citrus burst out straight away, hoppy too. Light body with a think texture, lightly carbonated with a lingering bitter finish, A very drinkable session ale. Not much difference between this and Avalanche by Fyne Ales but I prefer Avalanche as its slightly smoother and a little more refreshing but all in all not a bad ale at all!
