2.6 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 10/20
This bottled brew poured a medium sized head of foamy white colored fine to medium sized bubbles with a frothy top that left behind a softly carbonated transparent light orange brown colored body. The aroma was mild with malty and doughy notes. The mouth feel was tingly from start to finish with a mild malt hop thin flavor with just a touch of bitterness.

2.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 8/20
Aroma: pleasant with a hoppy and citrus undertone. Appearance: Head dissipated quickly and essentially completely. Light amber in color, almost clear around the top edge of the liquid. I know that this is supposed to the filtered version but my bottle had a tremendous amount of sediment which I found unusual. I will have to try it again to see if it was just an aberration. Flavor and palate: as expected with a bitter yet a lemony finish. Quite nice and refreshing overall.
Overall: Would rate much higher if not for the sediment. I will have to come back to this one.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
The aroma has robust citrus hops and caramel malt. The appearance is gold with a light orange hue. The head is medium. The flavor is hoppy with a citrus and pine flavor with caramel. The palate is average. This is a simple but good beer and very much like an IPA.

3.6 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bottle pours a golden color with nice head that leaves the glass quickly. This beer is all about the Goldings hops. It is remarkably citrusy mostly lemon. The finish is bitter but not assaulting. Refreshing.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Pours a golden glass of beer, with a white, foamy head, which dimishes quickly & pretty much completely.
Very hoppy, but smooth, & if it were as carbonated, it would very much remind me of a Heineken. However, this Scottish brew is much more of a bitter than a lager, & much more flavorful.
