3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Cask at The Argyll Hotel, Ullapool. It pours straw yellow, with a medium white head. The nose is tropical fruit, orange squash and white bread. The taste is zesty citrus, lemon, tangerine peel, light soap, peppery hop and grass, with a bitter, slightly citric finish. Light body and soft carbonation. Solid session ale.

Cask at Teviot. Golden blonde pour, thick white head that doesn’t go anywhere! Soft hoppy grassy nose, hint of bready malts. Very dry and slightly citrus, with subdued peppery Saaz character. Nice soft bitter linger. Ok, perfectly sessionable.

Tasted this at the Troon Beer Festival in October 2008. Cask, handpump dispense. Thought that this might be a dark one what with the name in all - nah. Yet another Golden Ale. Clear pale straw in colour with a thin white head. Clear rasberry fruit in the short aroma. Thin mouthfeel and good lacing. Pale malts gives a fruitloaf base with dark berry fruit evident. Thin hop resins give a slight spicy note to the brief aftertaste. Finish is sweet and malty. One of the better Golden Ales to be had in the portfolio and recommended.

Hamilton Hall Spoons. Cloudy gold beer. Residual white head. Light palate, slightly crisp and semi dry. Okay pale malt supports good hops. A little tangy orange - tangerine and a nice peach note. Finishes dry with mild hop bitterness. Refreshing!

2.8 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Pint at the Old Manor in Bracknell. Blond with nice little head on it. Tastes bitter, dry with a bit of citrus and hops. Alright. Aroma is weak, a little fruity and malted. A disappointing for this brewer.
