2.8 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
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.
