Cask conditioned, GBBF 2005:
Citrus aroma. Some hops gives the beer a quite refreshing bitterness. The same happens in the palate.

UPDATED: MAY 8, 2006 Really an ale, was not bad, was nice the foam, the colour is really good, a little creamy perhaps the impression is given by the colour. One of the favourites among Scottish ales fans.

Cask @ GBBF 2005: Golden coloured. Dusty. Fruity and sweet beer. Is a little stale. Has some vague citric notes, that gives room for some light freshness.

Very suprising, best iv had from kelburn. Aroma is grapefruit and slightly floral hops. Taste is similar, with a fuller than expected flavour for something of this strength. Very refreshing and i hope we’ll be getting this back in soon - wetherspoon (kirky puffer).

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Pale gold colour. Forceful grassy hop aroma, albeit a little green and clammy. Spicy citric hops on the palate (not pallet!). The finish is dry and quite austere. A commendable thirst-quenching hoppy session bitter. Handpump, Head of Steam, Euston, London NW1.

Cask Conditioned, at the Head of Steam, Euston, London.
Golden beer with a nice fluffy white head from the pump. The beer was in wonderful condition. Hoppy and delicious, with light and delicate pineapple notes. The beer finish with a good bitter bite and was outstanding.
