A quintessential golden ale brewed for refreshing easy drinking. Our soft Highland water allows the full floral flavour of the hops to come through the beer.

Oakes (13293) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - OCT 13, 2010
@ Cumberland Bar. Light amber. Fruity-toasty aroma might be a bit faint. Light fruity bitterness. Pale malt, with light toasty-caramel notes. Good balance - a highly quaffable pint. Another winner from Fyne Ales.

Beershine (5218) - The Sunshine State, Florida, USA - SEP 17, 2010
Cask @ Cumberland. Warm honey-gold with scattered lacing. Balanced aroma with sweet malts and fresh hop flowers. Soft palate is slightly sticky. The sweet pale malts are big, and then finishes with a nice floral hop finish. Moreish.

20.09.2009, on tap at the Bow Bar,edinburgh. Yellow colour with white head. Sweet malty aroma. At first the bitterness is a little hidden but it gets more bitter in the aftertaste. Very nice ale.

Alphadelic (1883) - Portland, Oregon, USA - AUG 25, 2009
Bottle: A bright golden ale with a foamy head that sifts down to a fine layer of white bubbles. Soft to the nose, just light breezes of cereal and light honey. A lots of creamy malts but balanced very well with some crisp English hopping that gives a perfect little dryness and zesty tingle. Some honey and Granny Smith apple peel ring through. Very drinkable though not totally stand out.
