AshtonMcCobb (2387) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - JAN 20, 2014
On tap at the Southern. Appearance - golden some haze and a nice head. Nose - dry citrus and nettles. Taste - unripe grapefruit. Nettles and grass perhaps even going into green pepper. Palate - light bodied with a creamy despite the fact its low alcohol. Such a long fresh finish Overall - another great beer from Highland.

Scopey (6325) - Croydon, Greater London, ENGLAND - DEC 24, 2013
Cask at Moorings. It pours clear amber with a small white head. The nose is toast, grain, floral, potpourri and washing up liquid. The taste is crisp, floral, citrus peel, grapefruit, touch of soap and grain with a dry finish. Light-medium body and soft carbonation. Fine.

JohnRMurdoch (3214) - Glasgow, SCOTLAND - DEC 10, 2012
Cask @ The Counting House JDW. Golden yellow colour, good head. Mild resin hop aroma. Biscuit & citrus fruit flavour. Bitter aftertaste. More a golden ale than a bitter.

Pale golden ale with sweet honey flavours complementing a fruity citrus flavour slightly bitter hoppy aftertaste which slightly detracts but nice beer with good flavour and low abv

mr_h (2757) - Ayr, SCOTLAND - DEC 6, 2012
Cask by handpump at Guildford Arms, Edinburgh - clear golden, good off-white head, mild fruity, citrus hop aroma, initial sweetness which becomes dominated by a bitter / sour citrus aftertaste

Benjii (3049) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - DEC 22, 2011
On cask at Cloisters. Pours a golden colour with a thin white head. Aroma of alcohol, grassy hops and caramel. Similar flavours with mild carbonation and an oily mouth-feel. Just a little cloying to finish.
