tombyars (1354) - Saltcoats, - FEB 23, 2012
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.

Dull dark straw. Thin head. Slightly appley but otherwise bland aroma, light body and same uneventful, sweetish character.

Benjii (3049) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - MAR 23, 2012
On cask at The Heriot-Watt Beer Festival. Pours a golden colour with a fair white head. Aroma of pine, pineapple, yeast and caramel. Similar flavours with moderate carbonation and an oily mouth-feel. A lingering lemon citrus character and a dry finish.

StueyD (1143) - Heacham, Norfolk, ENGLAND - FEB 20, 2012
Pale golden yellow, weak white head. Lemony hop aroma, honey and a little grassy. Dry taste, citrusy and a green grassy hop flavour matched by a dry, biscuity malt flavour. A long, dry, citrusy finish.
