3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottled 31/10/12. A light golden beer with a whitish head and lace. Light lemony hops in the nose. These are also in the mouth where they are joined by some sweet maltiness. There is an odd hint of vomit but otherwise it’s not a bad beer.

2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 10/20
Pours golden with a light white head. Smells floral and slightly fruity. To taste quite fruity with a hint of grass and nuts. Pleasant enough. Nothing special.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
500ml bottle. Pale golden color. Small size, white head, struggles to stay. Caramel malts, very sweet, milky and damp grass and honey in aroma. Reminds me bit of Lithuanian beers. Sour malts and grains, spicy hops, rosee pepper, herbal taste. Perle executes other hops and takes charge (and I don’t mind it). Nice spicy hops in aftertaste. Quite high carbonation which makes beer bit too aggressive, but I will survive. It’s not quite supremely golden, but nice enjoyment nethertheless. I want to try this on cask.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle at home. The color is straw yellow and clear, and has a small, off-white head. Butterscotch in the aroma along with hay, grass, pale malt and lemongrass. More grassy hops in the flavor with hay, lemon peel and grass. A little dry in the end. Light body, light mouth feel and light bitterness. A fresh and nice golden ale.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
500ml bottle from Aldi supermarket, drank at home:
This one was a very easy to drink beer that went down a treat & came through with a good balance but at the same time nothing really stands out for me. I liked the beer, it was a smooth one with nice touches of sweetness & good bitterness throughout; good stuff from Inveralmond but not quite great.

3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Golden color with a fine white head. Floral hoppy and fruity aroma. Decent body for an 4.1% ale. Ok balance between sweetness and bitterness. Average carbonation. Fruity, toffee and a fresh citric hoppy flavor. Nice session ale.

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.
