3.6 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 19/20
Drank this one out of the bottle. It poured and looked like your average lager beer. The smell was sugary but still rather bland. However, once this Scottish brew splashed in my mouth i was amazed. Very citrusy, a lot of orange flavors in there. High on the carbonation level which is not a bad thing for this style. The name speaks for itself.

UPDATED: FEB 9, 2006 I have to admit it is a good beer, but my palate just don’t like beers like this, it is like too hoppy, I do not know at all. But defenitley, in cask is better, cool rodent.

3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
The aroma of fruit was appealing. The taste had a citrusy tone (I actually prefer the aroma) with some malts/hops thrown in. This isn’t like the other British ales I’ve had over here. It has a the carbonation but the lemony angle sans a bitter aftertaste was a nice change. However, it could use more spunk in the long run.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle... Clear, light golden ale with a small, fizzy, white head. Citrusy aroma with notes of lemon and green tea. Perfectly balanced and very drinkable with hints of lemon and Tetley’s tea. Light-bodied, but satiny with lively carbonation. Short, crisp, clean finish.

Purchased in London from Saliburys Golders Green. Small head, low carbonination. Pleasant citrius aroma. Good hop spicyness with citrus bending with the sweet malts, a lingering bitter finish. Really enjoyed this bottled beer served at around 15C, nice to taste the hops.

(Bottle 50 cl) Very pale golden, with a small head. Rather low in carbonation. Very delicate and spicy hop character from no less than 4 hop varieties. Very refined and lovely. 040803

2.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 12/20
Hoppy aroma, lemony and herbal. Some hint at skunking, weird because its a brown bottle, but it may not have been lightstruck but a hop-related herbal note. Golden color, small head faded to nil. Fresh hops flavors are spicy, with a somewhat oregano-like herbal quality as well. Malts not special. Clean, surprisingly. Light palate. Strong hop finish. I can only imagine the cask version.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Golden beer with a little, white head. Very fresh aroma, lemon, hops and flowers with a hint of malt. The flavour is initially dominated by lemon, some herbs and has a very long hops aftertaste. Full mouthfeel considering the alc content.
