Mortlach (1076) - Rome, ITALY - MAR 28, 2015
Handpump @Mad For Beer (Rome). Pale yellow, just a little bit cloudy, with a medium white foam. Aroma has light grassy notes and tropical fruits, some biscuits and, some yeasts, nice! Taste has a light malt profile wit ha decent bitter end, clean and drinkable. Low body, fresh and refreshing. Decent session for sure, just "too much" watery.

500ml bottle, pours golden brown with a light haze. Aroma is grapefruit lemon and passion fruit hop notes, over biscuit and caramel. Good balance of hops and malt with a lightly bitter finish. Light bodied with a slightly oily texture. Carbonation is soft but lasting. Tasty session ale.

AshtonMcCobb (3415) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - DEC 24, 2014
Bottle from the Bottle Bank. Appearance - golden amber with a decent head. Nose - nettles and elderflower. A little sweet maris otter in the background. Taste - citrus, nettles again. Again a gentle sweet malt backbone. Palate - light bodied with a light but creamy texture and a long dry finish. Overall - totally reminds me of Orkney Best. A light but perfectly balanced and restrained beer that refreshes fantastically.

Bottle from Booth’s in Ripon. Golden with a frothy white head. Some nice tropical fruit in the aroma. The taste is more tropical fruit with a bit of lemon citrus. Some caramel in the background. Good beer, especially for the strength.

mR_fr0g (4536) - Hertfordshire, ENGLAND - MAR 22, 2014
Cask at the Euston tap. Clear golden straw colour with a loose white head. Some lace. Aroma is light grassy citrus hop and straw. Flavour is grainy cereal with some husk tanin, hop is grassy with some chive. Chalky carbonic finish. Very light palate is a bit too chalky.
