Good beer. Bitter without the citrus that seems to be quite common in many pale ales at the moment. Straight forward tasty beer. Very drinkable.

Scopey (10703) - Croydon, Greater London, ENGLAND - AUG 24, 2012
Cask at the Castle Tavern, Inverness. It pours clear golden yellow, with a medium white head. The nose is sweet pale malt, biscuit and light farmyard notes. The taste is sweet malt, straw, citrus pith and faint floral notes, with a dry finish. Light-medium body and soft carbonation. An above average golden, pretty well balanced and drinkable.

Rune (10011) - TromsÝ, NORWAY - APR 30, 2012
Had a half of this one from cask at JDWs Edward Wylie. The body colour is golden heading towards amber. Fragile layer at the top, laces well. Plain fruit hoppy aroma. Hoppy flavour with notes of dried fruits. Bittersweet ending. Easy to drink (Glasgow, 13.04.2012).

Cask at Teuchters. Out on the jetty. Barry. Golden with white head. Lemon notes. Quite one dimensional and malty. Not bad.

tombyars (1530) - Saltcoats, SCOTLAND - JAN 20, 2012
First tasted this in the Fox & Hounds in July 1999. Cask, handpump dispense. Clear pale straw in colour with a thin creamy white head. Fresh floral note on the nose along with zesty lemon peel. Thin but refreshing mouthfeel and good lacing throughout. Pale malt gives a juicy fruit base with tangy grapefruit and lemon notes that vie for attention. Dusty hop resins impart a citric note to the dry aftertaste which compliments the malt exceptionally well. Prefer this to Deuchars IPA anyday. A decent session Golden Ale and well recommended.
