Bottle shared at Scopey’s 5000th rate. Clear straw with a white rim. Nose is huge lemon and biscuit. Kind of one dimensional. Taste is lemon biscuit, touch zesty. Just boring

2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Bottle shared at my 5K tasting. It pours clear amber with a medium beige head. The nose is earthy, musty, grain, cat litter and mild fruitiness. The taste is doughy, grain, earth, faint citrus, spice and light bitterness with a dry finish. Medium body and fine carbonation. Pretty so-so stuff unfortunately.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle from Alesela, also 5.4%. Pours hazy gold, thick white head, couple of floaters, but could be user-error. Aromas of pear drops, cut grass, fresh oranges. Taste has a yeastiness, but good bitterness and boiled-sweet sweetness. Barley twists. Sweeter on the finish than I might like, but a good beer nevertheless.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle from The Beerhive. Hazy golden body with a thin white head. Light carbonation. Excellent lacing. Aroma of white sugar, lemon and pear drops. Unusual flavour of sweet candy, apple crumble and pear. Medium body with an oily mouthfeel. Soft carbonation. A bit too sweet for my liking. This bottle was 5.4%.

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
[cask at the Hanging Bat, Edinburgh] Opaque golden amber pour, tiny lacing. Aroma of orange peel, grassy straw. At first, the flavour is soft, sweet, orange, leading to a rising, slightly yeasty bitterness. Aftertaste is very bitter, almost resinous, leading to a sharp edge that detracts slightly from what is otherwise a great pale ale
