3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
On cask at the Standing Order.
Appearance - amber and a touch murky. Nice head.
Nose - malt and raisins. A bit tangy too. Like bread and butter pudding.
Taste - more of the same really. But a bit fresher.
Palate - light to medium bodied with a nice rich creaminess in the middle.
Overall - this is a bitter not a golden ale. However very balanced and drinkable.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Tasted this in the Last Post, Paisley (JDW) in 9th January 2014. Cask, handpump dispense. Clear pale straw in colour with a thick creamy white head. Malt in the short aroma with buttery shortbread noted. Thin resiny mouthfeel and good lacing. Pale malt gives a sweet fruity base of honeydew melon with none of the expected tart citrus fruit detected. Dilute hop resins impart a light floral bitter note to the short aftertaste. Finish is sweet and malty with hints of heather honey and apple crumble flavours. A decent session Golden Ale and worth seeking out.

2.5 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
Slightly hazy bronze. The aroma has slight biscuity nuttiness. Toasty, with lightly fruity (apple) notes. Ok beer, but seems to lack focus.
