3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Cask. At The Rake, Borough Market. Admittedly, this was very near the bottom of the cask - it went off shortly after my pint. Cloudy orange pour with a very large fluffy off-white head. Pungent spicy/grassy aroma - lemon grass, to be exact - unexpected and very appealing; the dreg can be loverly. The taste ... erm ... not so much; started soapy, the waves of dry grass/floral bitterness, spicy, dry and overpowering. Incredibly thick mouthfeel for a Golden (again, bottom of the cask), not much carbonation, extremely spicy and dry - yeast for days, this really stayed on my tongue. Quite a ride - I loved it, frankly.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Maker: Harviestoun, Alva, Scotland. ***
Beer: Bitter & Twisted (Cask, at The Standing Order, Edinburgh) ***
Style: Golden Ale ***
ALC.VOL.: 3.8% ***
Colour: Bright golden yellow, clear; medium, fluffy off-white head. ***
Nose: Lemon, honey, grass.***
Texture: Medium body, strikingly non-watery considering the low ABV. Creamy even! Soft carbonation. ***
Taste: Lemon, cucumber, floral hops, some herbs. As usual, floral hops increase towards the middle, while fruit flavors disappear. Agreeably malty background for balance. Lemon returns and then dominates the finish, along with floral notes. Bitterness actually increases in the hoppy aftertaste. ***
Impressions: A far more interesting beer than its low ABV suggests. Refreshing, eminently quaffable, but not bland. These qualities are rarely found together in a light golden ale. Good beer.

Nice and bitter with a lemony flavours mixed in. Bitterness long lasting. Enjoyable and easy to drink beer. Not as creamy as it appears. Flavour is ok but not out of this world. Very good bitter.

Arôme de citron sur une biere plutot légère. Classique bitter pour le reste sans intérêt particulier.
