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.

Halifax & Calder Beer Festival 2015. Copper-amber coloured ale. Has a sugary sweet nose that’s similar in taste but slightly less stated, although still stated enough.

Cask at the Pot Still, Hope Street, Glasgow. Amber with a decent white head. Pretty average really. Not much aroma to speak of, the taste is more Golden Ale than IPA.

GlasgowTAD (1165) - Glasgow, SCOTLAND - OCT 7, 2015
Cask at the Glasgow Airport Wetherspoons gaff. Pours a yellow shade of orange with a persistent, thick white head. Aroma is bread and slight toffee. Taste is ’wonderbread’, slightly bitter, a hint of malt sweetness in the background, much old world hops detected - very earthy.

Cask at the Corstorphine Inn. Pours clear golden, thin, cracked white head. Arommas of butterscotch, malt, light lemon. Taste is lemon barley water, touch of malty butter. Light body, clean finish.

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 (1433) - 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.

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.

Sampled @ Finest Spirits and Beer Convention Bochum 2014: Dunkelgoldenes Bier mit geringer weißer Schaumkrone. Geruch hopfig, malzig, würzig, so ist auch der Geschmack.

AshtonMcCobb (4826) - 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.
