2.8 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
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.

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.

1.9 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 7/20
0.5l bottle shared with The Tasting Crew. This is a near clear golden one with a small bubbly off-white head and some small sediments. On the aroma it’s light caramel-ish and buttery. Quite low, some grains and sweet corns perhaps? Dull and not exciting. It’s average carbonated with a thin and watery texture. Flavors are also light buttery, some thin caramel perhaps. Kinda low on the bitterness, and the little traces of hops that’s actually in this one tastes old and not to good. Drinkable but quite boring and forgettable. 16.06.2012

2.3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
Cask. Light golden colour, aroma is a touch hoppy and floral, taste is citrusy and not much else. Can’t say I enjoyed it a great deal.

1.4 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 3/20
Bottle from Centra Colosseum, Oslo, shared with BBGTC. Clear golden body, tiny white head. Herbal flowery hop tones to the nose, flanked by diacetyl-ish buttery notes and hints of pale malts. Taste is butterscotch, pale malts and some thin-ish hop tones in the back. Faint and weak. Body is thin and watery. IPA my ass; even with the widest of definition this is nowhere near the genre...
