3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Tasted this in the Last Post, Paisley (JDW) in November 2009. Cask, handpump dispense. Clear pale amber in colour with a thin white head. Sweet malty aroma with a tang of marmalade. Thin and resiny mouthfeel and good lacing. Pale malts give a strong juicy fruit component with watermelon, kiwi fruit and overipe redcurrants. Dry hop flowers give a bitter resiny aftertaste. Tart redcurrant fruit present in the malty finish. A Golden Ale in appearance but more of an autumnal ale in taste. Reminded me of Kelburns Red Smiddy in flavour. Well recommended.

3.4 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Thick white foam that lasts till the pint is finnished.
Light golden but a litle opque. Small hop aroma with pears. Big fresh bitterness but a litle too long lasting. Good but not as good as some of their other beers.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
A Mes rate: Cask at Baker Street ’Sporks.
Clean gold with a thin white head and lots of lace. Nice and spicy, slightly floral and really well balanced. Good earthy malt base and a really good lengthy bitterness. Straight forward but a very enjoyable drop.
