COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Ardnave Ale is a dry, thirst quenching, hoppy bitter. Brewed using mainly pale malt, a small amount of crystal malt adds just that little bit of extra character. A high hopping rate, using Golding, Mount Hood, Fuggle and Styrian Goldings give this beer a real thirst quenching dry character.

AshtonMcCobb (2933) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - JUL 7, 2014
50cl bottle from the Scottish Real Ale shop. Appearance - a lovely amber colour with a nice lacy head. Nose - mostly toffee but just a hint hint of herbs or pine. Taste - honey and wholemeal bread. A wee citrus kick at the end. Palate - medium bodied with a creamy texture but just a hint of malt astringency on the finish. Overall - good beer but pleasure slightly reduced by the mildly astringent finish.
