Draught at the Kilmartin Hotel. Pours a hazy golden colour with a decent head which stays. The nose has honey and pale malt. The taste has toffee and pale malt. The palate is not bad- medium in structure and texture with an almost clean finish. Overall, a decent ale.

Mungo (2472) - Southampton, Hampshire, ENGLAND - APR 7, 2006
CAsk conditioned @ Guide Dog, Soton. Slightly peachy fruit aromas combined with toffeeish malts and butter. All together makes a deserty (peach betty?) sort of feel which I didnt like too much.

jookos (2161) - FINLAND - JUN 16, 2014
Cask@blackdoor. Yellow, pale. Pale malty, light honey, just a hint of herby hops. Nice soft mouthfeel, just a bit of a mouthdry finish, some meadowy flavours. Easily consumed drink. Nothing that special, but doesn’t get boring either.
