Tjis was an excllent beer, from a brewer that is new to me. Aroma is citrus grapefruit hops. Taste is great, a very light sweetness from some sweaty (in a good way) malt, with amazing citrus hops giving it a serious drinkablility. Good to see from a new brewery.

Cask at GBBF ’08. Gold. Citric aroma and taste with a little grain. Mid bitter finish. I know I’m not saying a lot, but I really liked this one. Can’t remember why.

KnutAlbert (5752) - Oslo, NORWAY - AUG 28, 2007
Cask at the Toby Jug, Glasgow. Firm head, nice hoppy smell. Lots of hops in the flavour, too, more flowers than bitterness. A fine dryness creeping up in the aftertaste, though.

Cask conditioned at Banbury Beer Fest. Gold beer with white head. Some of these Scottish beers survived the cold conditions quite well, this was hoppy, light malty and dry with a crisp finish.
