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!

Draft at Craft 100 Spring 2016 - Craft Beer Co. Clapham, London. Pours mostly clear gold with a light, white foam head. The nose holds grainy pale malts and a little hay. Light sweet flavour with touches of lemon, rind, more pale grains. Light bodied with fine carbonation; good condition. Nicely balanced on the finish, with notes of biscuits and lemon peel. Pretty alright stuff.

Cairncross (1) - SCOTLAND - FEB 24, 2016 does not count
More pale ale then bitter it had a very crisp flavour when poured from celler with a temp of 7c. The second, warmed to 12c (balmy scottish heatwave) had a more distictive cirus aroma. Lower palate rating as it was bottle not cask

AshtonMcCobb (4993) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - FEB 10, 2016
Bottle thanks to Tim from the brewery. Golden with a head of some sort. The nose is a bit like a malt bag, then there’s some green/citrus notes. The beer isn’t as exciting as their others but it’s balanced at least.
