Easy taste, with some citrus. Not much after taste. A light beer, only 4,1% alchohol.

Golden, clear with a small white head. Aromas of apricot, light citrus, bit hay and biscuit develop. Light carbonation, light slick with a light-medium body. Light fruity sweetness with subtle bitterness. Short finish. Pleasant!

ianwelby (1076) - SCOTLAND - APR 29, 2015
Bottle from Sainsburys. Slightly hazy, very light yellow beer. Bit lively, thin white head. Zesty, grassy hop smell. Flavour is... slightly disappointing. Tangy, lemony taste but it disippates into an almost watery nothingness quite quickly and only leaves a light, bitter aftertaste. It’s not bad by any means. It tastes nice but it’s disappointing that the flavour doesn’t last longer than it does.

Handpull cask at the Cavens Arms, Dumfries. Mid-gold with a decent white head. Soft citrus aroma, very one-dimensional. I really loved the taste: savoury and herbal, with a note of astringency and the very hint of sweetness around the edges. Dry finish. Very impressive: a simple recipe which exhibits the brewers’ originality and prowess.
