Another class act from the excellent Phoenix (they’ll always be Oak to me) brewery. Light gold colour with lasting head. Very citrussy on the nose. Satisfying malt body with suitable bitterness on the finish. A winner.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Clear straw yellow body topped by a large white head that lasts. Hoppy, leafy, tart nose of mango, orange and bitter herbs that lasts and leave a bitter impression. Pretty dry mouth presence underbearing soft exotic and citrusy suggestions with obvious pepper notes. Surprisingly easy, yet complex session ale. Medium bodied, moderately carbonated.

Cask at Bon Accord, Glasgow. A golden beer with a lazing white head. The aroma is mainly sweet malty. The flavor is sweet with notes of straw and citrus from the hops. Jens! What do you know about beer? Love from Mes&Sim!!! (I guess the latter part of the rating is not mine - hmmm, but how did it get in to my note book I have no idea)

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bon Accord. Aroma gives pale malts, grassy hops, hints of lemon with a biscuitness coming through. Taste is similar, citrus hints and a small backing of caramalt, good effort alround.
