Cask at Prince Regent. Pour a hazy gold colour with a creamy white head. Aroma is malty, sweet, a little formal and grassy. A little powdery on the palate. It's nice, nothing special but quite sweet and hoppy with a nice bitter finish. Decent. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

[cask at the Guildford Arms, Edinburgh] [Badged as Atlas Golden Amber] Pours a pale golden yellow, with a reasonably thick white head. Decent grassy aromas, some light tropical fruit in evidence. On the taste, initially quite dry and lemony, then the sweet malt arrives before the finish returns to a pleasant dryness. Really quite nice [21102011]
