COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Our Pale Ale was named and first brewed to celebrate Crail Food Festival 2012. A bright golden ale with long lasting citrus and floral flavours especially good when relaxing on a nice day with mates and sampling some wonderful fresh fish and I can testify to that!

500ml bottle at home. Hazy golden yellow, big white head, high carbonation keeps it there. Aromas are cereal, honey, light lemon citrus. More lemon on the taste, decent balance, but overall a bit thin and dull.

500 ml bottle
Not a terrible beer, this is simply one I found myself indifferent about. It has no major flaws. At the same time it has no compelling reason to be picked over the myriad of other safe golden ales available at almost any pub in the UK. Buy one out of curiosity but don’t expect too much.

Aroma / Appearance - The transparent base has a golden tint that makes it easy to pick up on the active carbonation. A rich white head takes its time settling down. The nose is very mild. With effort comes cereal grains and light citrus notes. It isn’t as terrible as the mass produced stuff but neither is it compelling.

Flavor / Palate - Lemonade with a squeeze of fresh lemon tickles the senses. A few seconds later it is gone. The dull finish tries to hang around but like a summer thunderstorm disappears almost as quickly as it appears. Unremarkable and safe this beer is best consumed only to knock out another Scottish scalp.

jd543 (390) - SCOTLAND - MAY 4, 2013
Golden colour with a thin white head. Light hoppy aroma, with a bit of citrus. Flavour is sweet and bitter lightly balanced. Could have a bit more depth, but definitely very drinkable.
