First tasted this in Gabriels, Paisley in February 1999. Cask, handpump dispense. Clear pale amber in colour with a thin creamy white head. Floral hops in the short aroma. Thin resiny mouthfeel and good lacing. Pale malt base gives a digestive tea biscuit base with sweet toffee flavours infused through. Floral aromatic hops give a dusty bitter aftertaste. Finish is slightly bitter with hop resins evident in the mouth. An ok session bitter.
