Terrible pump-clip. Cask at White Lady, JDW. Pours clear pale gold, nice white head & lacing. Aromas of lemon and biscuit. Taste is more of the same. Light sweetness. Dry finish. OK.

Nilz (345) - Glasgow, SCOTLAND - NOV 23, 2013
Cask, a clear light gold with a creamy lasting head, aroma of floral hops and toffee hint, taste mild bitterness, citrus flavour and hops. Gentle carbonation. A nice session ale I reckon.

JorgeLee (1067) - Greater London, ENGLAND - SEP 15, 2013
From a keg in the Sheep Heid, Edinburgh. Unusual pouring mechanism, took forever to settle. Strawish yellow, pale, thick white head. Light floral ale with a surprisingly bitter hoppy twang in the finish. Decent enough.

ianwelby (330) - SCOTLAND - FEB 28, 2013
A creamy, hoppy and almost flowery pint with a sharp bitter finish and a subtle aroma that made me think the beer was going to be blander than it was.

mr_h (2434) - Ayr, SCOTLAND - JAN 26, 2013
Cask by handpump at Drum & Monkey, Glasgow - clear yellow amber, thin bubbly off-white head, fruity citrus hop aroma, no lacing, grapefruit and tropical fruit flavour, but thin, prolonged bitter citrus aftertaste

jamestulloch (1048) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - NOV 17, 2012
Aroma: Straw and earthy notes.

Appearance: Clear golden body with a small white head. No carbonation. Excellent lacing.

Taste: Light citrus, verging on sour. Earthy and a little soapy. Lingering bitter finish.

Palate: Thin to medium body with a very oily mouthfeel. Flat carbonation.

Overall: A solid, decent golden ale, but it’s not special or memorable. Very light at just 4.0% ABV.

From cask at Guildford Arms. Pours clear and golden yellow with a small white head. Aroma is fruity, peachy and grapefruity. Peachy, bitter and citrusy. Bitter, citrusy and grapefruity to peachy into the finish.

Cask at Akkurat sep-11 Slightly hazy golden. Bubbly, white head. Sourish fruit n both aroma and flavour; grapefruit. Fresh and crisp.

Aniela (2301) - Göteborg, SWEDEN - AUG 21, 2012
Draught at Akkurat, Sthlm 110929. Clear golden beer with a big white head. Hoppy and citrus aroma. Very hoppy flavour.

pivoveskotsku (201) - SCOTLAND - AUG 8, 2012
Cask. Pale blonde/straw colour, white head. Sweet, lemony aroma, lemon on the tongue and some sweetness and some hoppy bitterness. I believe it was served too warm. As a result it wasn’t refreshing and not very enjoyable. A decent beer, though, I believe.
