Light, clear golden ale with a small, fizzy head. Lemon citrus aroma with notes of green tea?. Perfectly balanced and very drinkable with hints of lemon and Bushell’s. Light-bodied, but smooth with good carbonation. Crisp, clean finish. I’ll be having some more of these this summer.

500ml bottle from Solo in St. Albert. Most scottish blondes have that "sexy beer you want to down at a party" feel and this was no exception. BClear golden pour, hint of copper colour, weak white foam that bubbles away slowly. Aroma is earthy malts, hints of caramel, passion fruit, lemon. Taste is a mild sweetness, honey, citrus followed by a punch of hoppy flavour. Great zesty citrus dried out with the bitterness. Superb.

couleur or, faible carbonatation. Le nez est houblonné, citronné et épicé. La bouche suit le nez, la texture est assez sèche, bonne amertume, un peu d’agrumes aussi. Légère et facile à boire avec une bonne finale citronnée.

4.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Crystal clear pale gold color with tons of bubbles running up from the bottom of the pint glass. Head pours cream colored but fades almost immediately. Smells extremely earthy and bready with a very faint hop presence and a not too subtle sweetness. Although I LOVE the taste of this beer. The hop is noticeable but not anywhere near what I’m used to in American IPAs. Present but not over powering. The yeasty/biscuit notes are wonderful and there’s a slight sweetness that has to be malt derived. It finishes extremely clean and has almost zero aftertaste. I could definitely see myself drinking more of this throughout the summer months because of the 4.2 ABV and easy drink-ability along with the great taste. Really glad I finally decided to pick this beer up for a try.
