I would session the heck out of this doozy from Scotland, so tasty t’is! Beautiful blonde bedecked with a buxom white bonnet and with lovely aromas of honey, cereal, light grass, pepper, some citrus and earthiness. The relaxed carbonation and slightly chewy body make this lower ABV feel bigger than it is. It’s got a hint of bitterness, grassy and citrus that linger but are subdued by sweet pale malts. A great full-flavoured beer!

Bottle. I’ll paste my 2007 review of the beer on cask: Clear golden and still, except with a 50% head <<not as much head as on cask, obviously>>, which is pretty. This has the aroma of celery which stuck around. The flavor is similarly like a fresh salad ... green and crisp, light and fruity. This would be an AWESOME summertime beer. God, I love beer.. <<Holds true, but certainly better on cask.>> (#5872, 11/23/2014)

3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Pours a slightly hazy amber, similar to a brown oak leaf. Normal head, lacing and retention. Nice nose of light sweet citrus (pear with lemon notes) over biscuit with a mild caramel note. Light medium body with a hint of slick texture. Normal carbonation with a bit of effervescence on the finish. The taste profile, while nice, is average in intensity, very well balanced and above average in complexity. Where it excels, is in the flavor profile that surrounds the bitterness, especially for a low 4.2% alcohol content. It begins with a flood of hop flavor (citric, rind and Noble) over light biscuit. Mild bitterness follows in the middle from the classic English Bitter profile coupled with a citric rind twist. As the bitterness diminishes, biscuit with caramel notes come forward. The finish has just a hint of dryness that leaves you with a light grapefruit rind bitterness that lingers and leaves the tongue tart with a distinct mineral note.

Bottle from a Glasgow ASDA. Amber with a off white head. Pleasantly bitter and citrusy with marmalade notes. A little biscuit in the background too. Nice easy drinking ale.

3.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
500ml bottle, light caramel & biscuit malts, nuanced citrus over grassy, pilsner like notes. Well crafted, balanced very nicely with a mild bitter aftertaste. Medium bodied with soft carbonation. Nothing original, classic aromas. Good stuff.
