3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottle into a pint glass. Orange-yellow with a fluffy head. Pine, earthy hop aroma. Smooth, light bitter maltiness with good body. Reasonable stuff but lacks imagination.

3.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
A very nice example of a British IPA, floral hoppiness and a light maltiness make this a very drinkable blonde. Bought at Britische Biere am Volksgarten, Emmastrasse 25 in Düsseldorf Germany. The only place in germany to buy Strathaven beers.

Cask at Glasgow Airport Spoons. It pours golden yellow with a medium white head. The nose is earth, faint farmyard, dough and flour. The taste is dough, grain, spice, citrus pith and some decent bitterness with a dry, lightly earthy finish. Medium body and fine carbonation. A decent, drinkable golden ale.
