A good pale ale. Pours gold, mid density head which persists. Not much nose/ Bitter, dry, hops, vanilla on the taste. Holds its flavour to the bottom of the pint. Another decent pale from pilot. Sessionable.

Keg at the Constitution, Leith. Dark gold/copper, clear with very little head. Aroma of forest floor, caramel malt, berries, cinnamon, vanilla ice cream. Taste is bittersweet, more sweet than. Bitter but there is a lovely spicy hoppy bite in the surprisingly dry finish. A wonderful example of an often unpopular style.

Scopey (11563) - Croydon, Greater London, ENGLAND - AUG 16, 2014
Cask at the Vintage, Leith. It pours clear golden amber with a medium white head. The nose is brown bread, wood, mild spice, leather and florals. The taste is crisp, doughy, floral, spice, breadth malt and light stone fruits with a dry finish. Medium body and fine carbonation. Not a whole lot to it...
