On cask at the sraf. Golden with a thin head. Orange and light herb on the nose. Confirmed on the taste and with good maltiness. Seems bitter initially but good persistent finish.

3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
500ml bottle from Oak Tree Inn Shop, Balmaha, Scotland (£2.99):
This definitely started well & I was really enjoying the sweetness on the nose early on but sadly this wasn’t carried through to the flavour & the earthy malts & bitterness seemed to take more of a front seat. The biggest disappointment was the fact that the beer almost seemed watery in places as well as being a touch bland before the background fruits appeared right at the end but these could have been stronger & the beer would have a better one for it.

2.8 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Had a bottle of this while I was cruising on a boat on Loch Lomand. It was a deep amber with a nice fluffy head that didn’t last too long in my plastic cup. Aromas were hoppy and fruity. Flavors were similar but not quite as nice. Metallic aftertaste and a lingering bitterness.

Lovely looking pint. Very fresh and well kept. Bit of fruit, some spice and malt. One I would try again.
