Cask at the Argyll Arms. Clear amber-honey pour with basically no head. Bready malt aroma with some caramel and toffee. Lightly sweet, malty and bready with dry, grassy bitterness. Light bodied with light carbonatio. Bitter, dry finish with plenty of bread. So so.

Amber pour with little to no head. Very crisp, clean and refreshing. Malty biscuit notes with low carbonation and a balanced bitter finish. Very enjoyable.

AshtonMcCobb (4133) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - JUN 16, 2015
On cask at the Haymarket. Appearance - golden with a proportionate head. Nose - light green notes, flowers, lemon. Taste - more of the same. A light stalky note intrudes with a cardboard note abreast. Palate - light to medium bodied with a creamy texture and a long dry finish. Overall - this was part of three thirds and the other two were muchmore chilled which makes me think that this was the ffirst pour of the day and that it was sitting in the run overnight. It was still good though but it needs to be revisited

Draft to English pint glass Corn adjuncts, wheat, a touch of lemon. Clear light amber. Wheat, light grains, bread. Not disgusting. Is that a good thing?

Fatehunter (1759) - Corbett, Oregon, USA - MAY 9, 2015
Pours a thin head on a clear dark straw body. The aroma is wet grains and lemon. The taste is mild lemon bitter and malty. The texture is softer. It’s fine enough.

JoeMcPhee (9004) - Toronto, ON, Ontario, CANADA - MAR 30, 2015
Golden pour with a thin white head. The aroma is softly fruity and a little bit hoppy. Has a little bit of estery sweetness and a touch of crackery malt. There’s a little bit of berry flavour. Light bodied but pretty nice. Quaffable ale.
