Cask (backlog). Golden colour, small white foamy head. Aroma is floral, mild honey, nectar, grass and some bready notes. Flavour is quite similar in a good balance. Balanced, and for once a refreshing and pleasant golden ale.

On tap @ Haymarket Bar, Edinburgh. Pours amber with a nice proportional head. The nose has lemon and grapefruit pith. More lemon pith on the taste against a malty background. The palate has a medium body, is medium textured and has a nice clean finish. Overall, a good ale.
