UPDATED: DEC 29, 2011 Re-rating. Was a bit of a hard marker the last time. It pours beautifully and thereís lovely dried fruit on the nose this time. Overall, a well balanced palate and very tasty.
Previous rating 07/03/11 6/3/6/3/12 = 3
Slightly muesli on the nose. A light golden ale in appearance. Grainy on the palate and a tiny amount of grapefruit on the finish. Average structure and texture. A good ale that is balanced but not as exciting as their other brews.
Re-rate from 5 litre keg (first rate was 2.5). This beer opitimises balance!

UPDATED: MAR 3, 2011 [cask at the Blue Blazer, Edinburgh] Nice golden colour with a decent head. Dry and hoppy with a decent range of flavour for itís relatively low abv. Always think this is more a pale ale than an IPA, itís just hot hoppy enough. Stewartís best-selling beer, and I can see why Ė much more preferable to Deuchars IPA. Just donít order one thinking youíll get something from the Pacific NorthWest - this is a session-strength British IPA all the way (i.e. a golden ale with a few more hops in)  re-rate 03032011 - an early Stewart rating, on reflection itís just too insipid to merit a 3.5 - re-rating to 3.1 although my comments still hold

On cask drank with Craig and Andrew. Pours a cloudy copper with a thick cask head. The aroma is light fruit, some aromatic floral hops. The flavor is very nice; a smooth creamy palate with some fruit, light bitterness, dry and mellow. Nice.
