2.7 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
500ml bottle. Pours a clear medium gold, with a very large white head, which lasts well and leaves decent lacing. Crisp, spicy pilsener hops lift the aroma, but doughy yeast drags it back down again. Spicy, mildly peppery hops up front give way to white bread malt and doughy yeast in the mid-palate. Crisp, pilsener hops finish it off. Overall, this would be a decent sessionable light ale, were it not dragged down by too much bland yeast flavour. I had the same problem with Stewart’s Hollyrood, and I really think they need to sort it out.

2.3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 8/20
Pale golden colour as advertised, but the taste was rather disappointing. There was a vaguely fruity taste, but otherwise it was more like dish water.

500ml bottle pours a golden orange color with a 2 finger white head that settles slowly to reveal a few spots of lacing. Aroma is light fruits and grass. Taste is a spicy grass hop bitterness with a big malty sweetness. Light to medium body with moderate carbonation. A nicely done lighter brew which is easy on the palate and makes a good session ale.
