An absolute behemoth of a Pale Ale. Hopheads will flock to this one.Golden straw coloured and slightly smaller brother of Hurricane Jack but only in alcohol. If anything even more citrus,apricot on the nose and palate. As good a beer brewed in Scotland ever - at 4.0%.

UPDATED: DEC 2, 2010 Cask at GBBF 2010, 3rd Aug 2010. Bright gold with a lacy white head. Wonderful floral, grapefruit nose. Every time I ran a mouthful round my mouth I got more from it - tons of peach and nectarine. Awesomely fresh tasting. Great dry citrus finish. Perfect weight. Sublime stuff, UK beer of the festival for me. I think I must have caught it at just the right time.

UPDATED: JUN 29, 2016 My Bottom Line:
Crisp and balanced, this snappy Golden Ale seduces through its spicy, herbal and citrusy hops dallying in a lean and bubbly mouthfeel not unlike a good Kellerbier.
Further Personal Perceptions:
-A foam mushroom laces atop the very pale blond.
-Malts provide haystack allusions, perfect to support the judicious hoppiness.
-This was obviously very drinkable and satisfying as a session beer.
-This is as absolutely lovely served from a cask as it is from the bottle, although both mouthfeels are obviously different. Great job Fyne Ales!

Bardzo bardzo aromatyczne piwo. Zapach swierzo dojzalych pomaranczy, cytryn i innych cytrusow. Piana srednia ale trwala. Kolor jasny, zlocisty i klarowny. W smaku lekkie ale goryczkowe i cytrusowe. Doskonale wytrawne i cytrusowe. To dominujace wrazenia. Bardzo dobre szkockie Ale. Polecam

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 Iíd be more than happy to quaff a few of, lovely stuff!

UPDATED: JUL 11, 2011 [cask at the 2010 Scottish Real Ale Festival] One of the newest beers from Fyne Ales, Jarl features Citra, very much the hop du jour. The Sierra Nevada-backed hop gives a fabulous tropical fruit flavour to Jarl. Itís extremely sessionable, golden and with a lovely bitter grapefruity aftertaste to compliment the pineapple up front. Pour is golden and slightly hazy, no real carbonation to speak of  Re-rate following several tastings now Jarl has become a regular beer. Itís just as fabulous now - the grapefruit hit makes it such an uplifting beer to drink. Almost always perfect on cask, proof that you donít need 6%+ abv to make a flavourful beer. I actually prefer this to Avalanche now, which is a beer from FA I never thought would be surpassed. Outstanding
