Cask by handpump at Café Royal, Edinburgh (9 Jun 12) - clear golden ale, huge creamy white head, very mild malted barley aroma, wheat, fruity, bit of caramel, moderate carbonation, smooth, nice

Cask at Cloisters. Pours clear amber, thin white head. Aromas of caramel, almost butterscotch, something green, not necessarily nettles though. They come through a bit on the taste, but not in a sting-y way, just more ’green’. Not much else going on. Pretty dull to be honest.

Cask (Bow Bar, Edinburgh) - Amber in colour. Sultanas and some slightly spicy hints in the aroma. Malty and fruity taste with a slightly tangy kick.

On cask at Cloisters. Pours a blonde colour with a decent white head. Aroma is a little sweet with nettles, heather honey, yeast and caramel characters. Similar flavours with moderate carbonation and a foamy mouth-feel. Quite dry to finish with lingering heather honey and yeast again.

Cask @ The Cafe Royal Circle Bar. Clear amber brown colour, good foamy head. Mild caramel flavour. Dry vanilla marzipan caramel malt flavour. This is a bitter not a golden ale.
