3.6 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
500 ml bottle purchased and consumed in Fife, Scotland. BB date stamp of July 2016 (more than 1 year away).
Appearance: true to style, this is very pale golden with plenty of visible carbonation and a white head. Exceptional sticky lacing.
Extra hops add spicing to this ale that also has more malts than expected for style. Mild caramel and vanilla notes. Easy drinking with plenty of flavor.
O: recommended. Not entirely true to style, this version is more flavorful, appealing and interesting than average.
