Scopey (6321) - Croydon, Greater London, ENGLAND - FEB 23, 2014
Cask at the Holborn Whippet. It pours clear golden with a medium white head. The nose is fresh, fragrant, orange peel, grapefruit, tangerine, doughy background. The taste is crisp, bitter, doughy, citrus peel, grapefruit, light floral and a touch of spice with a dry finish. Light-medium body and fine carbonation. Crisp, bitter and so very well balanced. Subtle nuances galore. Well-executed and effortlessly drinkable.

AshtonMcCobb (2380) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - JAN 9, 2014
On tap at the Guildford Arms. Appearance - golden with a slight haze. Decent head. Nose - citrus but predominantly meadow flowers. Maybe even a hint of custard. Taste - more flowers and there’s a lovely tangy hop resin thing going on. I think this is where the custard note came from. Palate - light to medium bodied. Something on the end has not sorted itself out. Not as fresh as I’d hoped. Overall - interesting and good but more interesting than good.

On tap @ the Stockbridge Tap. Pours golden and fairly bright with a thin head. The nose is mostly of malt and lemon. The taste has grapefruit lemon pith and creamy malt. The palate is light to medium bodied with a clean finish. Good ale isn’t it a Pale?
