Bottle from the Scottish Real Ale shop. Appearance - golden amber with a nice head. Nose - lemon and flowers going into custard. Taste - creamy lemon with barley water backdrop. Palate - light to medium bodied with a good creamy texture and a balanced dry finish. Overall - good ale. A lot of what I’m looking for in this style.

imdownthepub (10226) - Banbury, Oxfordshire, ENGLAND - OCT 22, 2013
Cask conditioned at The Claghaig Inn, Glen Coe, Highland, Scotland. Gold with white head. Sweetish, fruity, malty light beer, thin on the palate, some grainy notes and a hint of lemonade. It’s ok to its style but a little dull.

Golden in colour, citrusy and hoppy, quite more aromatic than many beers i have tried recently. Aroma translated to the taste and palate. Easy beer to drink.

Seffle (164) - Mölndal, SWEDEN - JUL 3, 2013
From tap at Glencoe Gathering. Light amber. Slightly opaque. Weak head. Really a very good blonde or rather light ale. Nice hops with both fruitiness and bitterness. Will drink this again. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Bottle 500ml. A pleasant blonde ale with more flavour than most. However to my tastes this is slightly too strong to be as refreshing as some other beers in this style. Pretty decent ale.
