3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
13th Aug 2015: cask pint in The Wellington, Ayr, Scotland. Poured a light golden yellow with a white head. Floral notes with a cut grass aroma, the taste sweeter than the nose hinted at, yet with a mild citrus flavour cutting into the floral traces from the aroma. Slight bitterness towards the finish. Decent but no strong flavours to get into really.

Pours a golden yellow with light white head. Floral and grassy on the nose. Taste sweet floral and hop that moves to a lasting bitter citrus flavour. Seems slightly watery but gets better as you go.

2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Cask at the New Bazaar, Dumfries. Mid gold, served on this occasion with a large Northern head. Lemon-lime Pixy Stix aroma. Taste is a standard bitterness with a tinge of citrussy sweetness. I lose the sweetness at the finish, where only bitterness - with a touch of sulphur - seem to remain. I want to like this and I feel as though I should. Full marks for trying but I feel the balance isn’t right at all.

2.8 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
[6511-20140710] Cask. Grainy smoky rotting grass and corn aroma. Clear, pale orange body with a medium-lasting foamy white head. Bitter toasted grass and corn continues in the flavour. Medium body is quite bitter. Not bad, but a little weird. (4/3/6/3/12) 2.8-
