GBBF Day 4. Cask. The great Harrisoni/madmitch76 walkabout. Almost clear gold beer, small white head. Light pale malts. Light floral orange and a whisper of lemon. Light dry finish. Okay.

Oakes (12723) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - MAR 3, 2014
Bubbly head, bronze-amber colour. Dark stone fruits and lively pale and amber malts - balance and complexity. Tastes a bit simpler, with a dash if caramel, diacetyl, and not as bright a hop character.

Bottle from Royal Mile Whiskies, Edinburgh. This amber beer has a sweet red fruit and caramel flavour, malty notes and a sweet, slight woody finish.

Terrible name, as most of them are. Realised whilst drinking it that I could make beer like this at home for about 30p a bottle. This cost me £2.90. Why? Pretty boring beer.

jamestulloch (1451) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - DEC 13, 2012
Aroma: Toffee, grassy and grain.

Appearance: Clear amber body with rose highlights. Small off-white head that fades very quickly. Average carbonation. Very light lacing.

Taste: Mild caramel flavour with herbal and citrus hints. The flavour isn’t very strong.

Palate: Thin body with watery texture. Soft carbonation.

Overall: Not great - pretty dull flavours and very thin.

AshtonMcCobb (2697) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - NOV 8, 2012
50cl bottle thanks to the brewery. Pours a honey colour with a thin layer of lace. The nose has grassy and grainy notes with just a hit of citrus zest. The taste has lemon zest again with a nice grain background. The palate is light to medium bodied with a nice tangy texture and a clean refreshing finish. Overall, this is in between a pale ale and a bitter and is a good session pint - the sort that people in the local area should lap up but it’s not world beating.
