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.

[cask at the Baillie, St Stephen Street, Edinburgh] Probably the pick of the Stewart beers, a fantastic hoppy golden ale on cask, and pretty good in the bottle. As the name implies it pours a mellow golden colour with a decent head (thanks to the sparkler). Lovely aromas of grapefruit and other citrus from the Tettnang hops. On the palate, hoppy and fruity, with a rising bitterness that leads into a very nice dry finish. Rivals Cairngorm Trade Winds in the Scottish Session Stakes, although loses out overall [10022008]

From bottle. Bright, clear golden colour with plenty of bubbles providing a good head that lasts. Sweet fruity aroma with caramel notes. Excellent flavour sweet and citrusy to begin with leading to a tasty bitterness that is satisfying. Overall an interesting ale that punched well above it’s weight for me.

Cask at Guildford Arms. Pours clear gold with a good white head. Light biscuit malt aromas, some toffee and citrus. Good balance of sweet and bitter on the taste, more biscuit coming through. Gentle carbonation, good mouthfeel. Nice, solid beer.

Cap explodes off with a gush of pent up fury, but luckily the beer remains intact. Into a snifter at just on cool it goes and a heady, honeyed papaya wafts up to greet me. It settles more head than beer. A looming, noisy, two inches of rocky foam atop a hazy orange copper body. The nose seems more Belgian Tripel than Golden ale. Yeasty, fruity, spicy with bready undertones and a hint of dried herbs. Quite rounded, sweet and tangy on the palate. Again yeasty and bready like the nose, but fuelled by high effervescence which sees it slip passed the tonsils with radical ease. Dries out in the swallow showing big, bold papaya and guava notes, a light orange zest bitterness and just a little lemon rock candi. This seems a bit hit and miss by the look of the ratings but I find it approachable and refreshing. The flavour profile is still more Belgian than not, but it works. Good stuff! (50cL, BBE 08/14, The Liquor Shed, Jandakot)
