Hugh (153) - Zillebeke, BELGIUM - JUL 30, 2005
Draught: Canterbury Beer Festival 2005. Beer of the festival for me, golden with a great combination of bittering and aroma hops. Didnít recognise the brewery at first & suprised to find it was Scottish. Definitely an heir of Deuchars IPA. Then I remembered, this was the anaemic thing Iíd once had from a bottle.

BeerLimey (2154) - California, USA - JUL 28, 2002
Cask: Caramel malts, sweet throughout without getting too sweet. A slight hop in the background never really pronounces itself but just plays a quiet support role.

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.

maeib (8750) - Wootton, Northampton, Northamptonshire, ENGLAND - APR 24, 2006
Cask conditioned - gravity dispense - Banbury BF. A golden coloured beer with afruity hoppy aroma, with oranges and tangerines. More citrus hoppiness in the flavour, but this time itís a lighter lemon note. A clean fresh and tasty little drinker.

Muggus69 (1270) - 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.
