Cask at GBBF 2006. Golden with thick off white head. Bit of butter, some hop, some caramel. Yeah itís a good Scottish beer with malty, sulphur and sharp notes but it is buttery too.

2.4 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 9/20
[Cask at GBBF] Golden colour. Sweet and fruity with medium body and rounded mouthfeel. There is not much to catch your interest, sort of like a dortmunder of ales, but with less interesting malt character.

On tap in a Glasgow Weatherspoons freehouse. Malty aroma with a good head. Slightly bitter ale but also smooth to drink. Bit of a strange aftertase I felt but overall an average ale.

2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Cask, Coventry Fest 06. Golden with minimal head. Aromas are buttery malts, sweet mellow lemon. Floral hops. Flavours are very typical of a golden ale - buttery with lemon, some spices, fairly dry, slick on the palate with some zestiness. A bit dull.

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Cask conditioned at Coventry Beer Festival. Gold colour with slight head. Another beer set up with a light crisp base to deliver big hoppy flavours and aromas, I like them, I do, and this is one of the better ones. Plenty of refreshing grassy hops, there is a resinous character and a definite alcohol kick which caught me out as the programme said 4.0%. Enjoyable.

Another winner from this brewery, that wetherspoons have recently hooked up with. Citrus hops with soem honey notes dominate aroma. The taste is similar and very balanced, seriously easy drinking stuff!
