tombyars (1589) - Saltcoats, SCOTLAND - FEB 29, 2012
Tasted this in the Salt Cot, Saltcoats (JDW) in May 2010. Cask. handpump dispense. Crystal clear pale gold in colour with a thin white head. Dusty lemony hops in the long aroma. Thin resiny mouthfeel and good lacing. Pale malts give a citric fruit note of sherbert lemon, pineapple and grapefruit. Good floral lemony hops compliment the malt component well to give a dry zesty bitter aftertaste. Strong citrus fruit returns in the tangy finish. An ok Golden Ale but not that outstanding.

A Sim rate (cask at the Woolpack): Ummm...Iím not gonna lie. Itís not great. Very malty, wheaty and no hop flavour at all. Good cheer it does not create.
