COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Cask; Regular. Sold as Toby’s IPA at the Toby Jug in Glasgow.
A refreshing drink made with Maris Otter malted barley and Clyde Valley hops.
It is a light coloured IPA making it an especially pleasant session ale which captures the pedigree of the famous draught horses still to be seen around the Strathaven area.

Cask at the Laurie Arms, Haugh of Urr. Gold with a medium white head. Very slight aroma, some sulphur and tangerine but you certainly have to work for it. Bittersweet orangey taste with hop bitterness taking the lead at the end. A decent ale, though not overwhelmingly interesting by any standards.

prawlie (1238) - Berkshire, ENGLAND - MAR 24, 2015
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.

Maltworm01 (7) - - NOV 21, 2014 does not count
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.

AshtonMcCobb (3594) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - MAY 27, 2014
On cask at Cafe Royal. Appearance - light amber with a decent head. Nose - slightly elusive but a touch of citrus there. Taste - lemon with a toffee backbone. Palate - light to medium bodied with a creamy texture and a long dry finish. Overall - not the most exciting but it is balanced.

niquillis (1511) - Stoke on Trent, Staffordshire, ENGLAND - MAY 6, 2013
On cask at Castlecary House Hotel, Castlecary. Pours golden with smooth white head. Not much hoppiness really and very thin. An inoffensive and unexciting beer.

Scopey (8371) - Croydon, Greater London, ENGLAND - APR 5, 2013
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.

Beer4000 (4950) - Kristiansand, NORWAY - MAR 29, 2013
500 ml bottle. Golden body with a fast disappearing white head. Aroma has notes of light honey with a hint of caramel. Flavor is sweet caramel with a very light and slightly harsh bitterness. Thin body and unpleasant aftertaste. Not in a good condition.

Little on the nose. Strong citrus flavours. Light fizz. Relatively unexciting IPA.
