KnutAlbert (6123) - Oslo, NORWAY - DEC 23, 2010
Malt and a little yeast, rather light weight. Lacks the bitter edge to make it really refreshing or quaffable. Not bad, just not worth seeking out.

Muggus69 (1226) - Yarram, Vic, AUSTRALIA - FEB 10, 2010
Cask Pale gold pint, creamy head. Nice hop nose; bit of citrus and stonefruit, malt takes a backseat. Lean body, quite dry, low carbonation. Hops dominate body, grapefruit, bitter orange, spice, hint of honeyish malts. Reasonably good bitter finish. Enjoyable, hop-driven ale; one of the better ones iíve come across in Scotland.
