3.3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Clear pale thin light goldish orange with a white soapy lacy lingering head. Smells stale, with hops, citrus, flowery and malt. Medium to full thin body. Tastes of sweet grape, light malt with a soft hop bitter finish. More compex than it seems. With some melon and a bit of corn. Decent and interesting.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Pizzeria Paradiso, Alexandria cask ($7): Pours an orangeish colour with a nice creamy white head. Aroma is bready and fruity, but the taste is where it is at. It is kind of fruity. Nice amount of bitter hops. Bready finish. Extremely chuggable, but in the most pleasant possible way a beer can be chuggable. I was very impressed by this offering. This might be the best nondescript lager I have ever had.

3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Light in body with a slight amount of white head. Very drinkable with some sweet fruity (not exactly citrus aroma but a little banana and ginger-like flavors). Very crisp on the palate with only the slightest bit of malt beneath the hop and yeast flavors. Kind of reminded me of the Weihenstephaer Hefe. At 4.8% this beer is very sessionable.

One of the better casks I’ve ever tried, nose has nice lemony element and some slight sweetness. Taste is similar, although fruity hop quality is slightly lost. More pungent than expected; good beer overall and extremely refreshing.

3.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Appearance: Dispensed a hazed, yellow body with a small, snow white head.
Smell: Pith-heavy lemon peels, lesser notes of spice and herb over a subtle, very understated base of lightly crisped barley.
Taste: Lightly (and briefly) sweet, simple particularly pale maltiness. Dull spiciness with a sharp lemon burst accompanying the hop bitterness. Dry, lightly spicy finish with that pithy lemon quality still gripping the tongue.
Mouthfeel: Medium-light body. Medium-light carbonation.
Overall: Schiehallion has that strong lemony tone I felt their Bitter & Twisted had, leaving it just a bit too Lemon Pledge-y for me.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
First tasted this in Coanes, Johnstone in April 1995. Cask, handpump dispense. Crystal clear gold in colour with a thick creamy white head. Strong citric notes and warm bread notes in the long aroma. Thin and resiny mouthfeel with good lacing. Pale malts give a sharp clean malty bite with gooseberry fruit evident. Wheaty cereal notes present in the grassy, bitter aftertaste. Finish is robust with the malt sweetness coming through. This has weaned a few punters off their nitrokeg TL! Highly recommended.
