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.

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

Palate: Thin body with watery texture. Soft carbonation.

AshtonMcCobb (5205) - 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.

scotty (1147) - SCOTLAND - SEP 2, 2012
Cask at the Fox and Hounds, Denholm, just along the road from the brewery. Burnt gold in colour, with a finger thick white head, lasts well, leaving an attractive lace. Well balnced brew with good malt presence and a big citrus hoppy bite, crackin’ stuff! We walked 5 miles from Hawick to try this, well worth the trek!
