Fondly known as “Yellowcap”, Scraggy Bay is a balanced coppery ale with a snappy little bite of hops.

500ml bottle from Reills Lisnaskea, £2.50:
This one was a very nice American style IPA, particularly as it comes from an Irish brewery and came out a lot better than I was expecting. Thankfully the beer was quite bitter with a lot of grapefruit and citrus flavours, some pine helping add to this as well. Overall this one was quite an enjoyable offering and one that I wouldn’t mind picking up again.

mR_fr0g (4391) - Hertfordshire, ENGLAND - DEC 30, 2014
Bottle thanks to big bro. Hazed light golden orange coloured pour with a lasting white head. Aroma is grassy, earthy hop with a little hay. Bit dirty on the nose. Flavour is semi crisp, dirty grassy hop and a little hedgerow berry. Palate is medium light bodied with highish carbonation. Decent.

turbothy (1130) - Bonn, GERMANY - NOV 26, 2014
Pours slightly cloudy with a fairly solid head. Clear hoppy aroma and a crisp bitterness. Not bad, but not exactly a session beer.

Aroma of dead flowers and wet hay. Taste is similar with some bready malts. Color is average yellow gold, white head, no lacing. This was a miss.
