3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Tasted this at the Troon Beer Festival in October 2009. Cask, handpump dispense. Crystal clear gold in colour with a thin white head. Sweet pink grapefruit note in the short aroma. Thin resiny mouthfeel and good lacing. Pale malt gives a digestive biscuit base with fruity zesty notes of fresh pink grapefruit and creamy lychees. Wheaty cereal note evident in the dusty floral flavours present in the dry bitter aftertaste. Finish is slightly malty with sweet juicy fruit flavours. A decent session Golden Ale.
