Bottle. This is a pretty blah bitter with nothing to really get it over the line where I would want to session it.

SaintMatty (5242) - Uppsala, SWEDEN - APR 26, 2014
Cask (Mile Castle JDW, Newcastle) - Dark amber/copper in colour. Biscuity malt and sultanas in the aroma. Walnuts, earthy hops and sultanas are in the taste.

McNeillR (1221) - SCOTLAND - FEB 15, 2014
Pale amber, decent white capped head. Bright dycatelly nose, wiped down leather nose. Roomy malt initial taste, cooling grassy lemon whisked away by an unsweetened cupcake light malt. Pretty odd. Medium carb and passible finish before an odd scratching paint stripper linger. No great. Cask, Cask and Barrell SS.

500ml bottle. Brown amber colour, foamy off-white head and aroma of malt & some citrus. Taste is biscuity malt with light citrus hop bitterness. Light bodied, medium carbonation, dry bitter finish. Quite OK.

Nilz (384) - Glasgow, SCOTLAND - AUG 3, 2012
A clear amber ale with a slight head that dissipates with nice lacing. Aroma of amlt and citrus. Taste, a pleasant mild bitterness, malt there and perhaps grapefruit. Overall I liked it.
