Cask at Doric, half pint. Clear, amber-gold body, naked surface, poor lacing. Resin-like hops on the nose. Resin, grain and leaf to the taste buds. More sweet than bitter ending. Easy going and a bit thin bodied (pub crawl with Henry in central Edinburgh 09.08.2013).

BeerCast_Rich (1847) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - NOV 23, 2010
[cask at Cloisters, Edinburgh] Pours a slightly hazy golden colour, thick white head. Some good hop bitterness on the aroma, and also the flavour – quite unexpected given the low abv. Fruity hops on the palate, dry bitter finish. Really quite nice, certainly as good as Pentland IPA [16112010]

JohnRMurdoch (3172) - Glasgow, SCOTLAND - NOV 16, 2010
Cask @ Cloister’s, Edinburgh. Resin aroma, bright golden colour. Flavour resin biscuit and cereal. Smooth. An unusual and interesting golden ale.

Oakes (12167) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - OCT 13, 2010

Beershine (5201) - The Sunshine State, Florida, USA - SEP 24, 2010
UPDATED: OCT 21, 2010 Medium gold. Stable head. Aroma is hops, on the stale side but nice. Soft palate is moderately sticky. Alright, it’s a decent Stewart, with simple fruity malts, leafy hops. OK.

dry-hopped version as Radical Rumpus, at the Radical Road beer festival. Is hazy gold with scant head. Really fruity aroma is almost candylike but pleasant with lychees, honeydew, and strawberry. This might help a more expert palate or a brewer figure out what hop was used. Has quite a light body but is lively and fresh. Has a very unique flavor profile. Loads of sweet ripe lychee and smilar fruits are nice, but it ends up being too sweet for me. 7-3-7-3-13
