Based on our IPA malt grist but bolstered by the wonderful American Amarillo Hop our Hollyrood is a world class pale ale.
Pale in colour with a full fresh citrus aroma, Hollyrood has a light body, moderate bitterness and tangy grapefruit flavours. It goes well with light flavoured foods such as tiger prawns in garlic butter, char-grilled chicken, pan fried sea bass, or burger & chips.
Hops: Magnum and Amarillo Malt: Maris Otter and Wheat

thmsboyd (166) - Ayr, SCOTLAND - JUL 6, 2015
Bottle BBE: Apr 16. Well-chilled. Pours a hazy gold-amber body with small, tight white head and floaters. Fresh, crisp, medium-light intensity, malty aromas of potato chips and a little ripe cheese. A moderate sweetness is cut by a medium bitterness. On the palate, the body is light-medium and the texture is a little coarse. Carbonation is average and the finish is short and bitter. Not much in the way of grapefruit and citrus, this drinks a bit more like a premium lager. Not a bad one, mind you.

dogbomb (1117) - ENGLAND - JUN 7, 2015
Bottle. Lightly hzy golden ale with a thin white head. Nose is lemony and light. In the mouth, there’s a malty biscuit followed by light lemons and the finish is bitter and long lasting. Leaves a nice lemon biscuit crunch in the finish.

Bottle from Aldi. (£1.25) Had this ages ago and It was pretty good. This seems to be a very different animal altogether, somehow tasting like a bog-standard supermarket French lager. Not good. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

swampwater (66) - Preston, Lancashire, ENGLAND - FEB 19, 2015
Came with a Beer 52 order. Bottled.

Aroma: A hoppy, and floral aroma. A slight hint of dragonfruit.
Appearance: Pours a hazy gold. Barely any head.
Taste: No strong flavours here. Whispers of bitter hops, citrus, and dragonfruit.
Palate: Ever so slightly bitter at first, then citrus-sweet. Light carbonation. Light body. Oily mouthfeel.
Overall: A very inoffensive beer. No big flavours, no big aromas. It’s not a favourite, or a hated beer, it just... exists.

UPDATED: JAN 28, 2015 Tap. Dobre cytrusowe aromaty. Piana niska, szybko opada. ?rednia goryczka. Piwo w balansie idzie w kierunku goryczki. Bardzo pijalne ;-)
