Pale, slight hint of lemon, very hoppy. Easy drinking and refreshing, but strong. If you like pale beers, this is near the top.

2.3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
Cask at The Haymarket Bar, Edinburgh. Pours golden and slightly hazy with a decent white head. The nose has some caramel and grapes. The taste has a bit more caramel and grapes with a burnt/grapefruit finish. The palate isn’t great - medium bodied and textured but just doesn’t clean on the end. Overall, unfortunately another wishy-washy British ale which doesn’t drink that well.
