3.4 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 16/20
On tap at Wetherspoon in New Town Edinburgh (under 2 pounds stirling). This beverage isn;t bad, nor great but better than average. Having been brewed in a 17th century building on the banks of the river Avon does not hurt this ale one bit. Rather a light (in the Scottish sense) summer beer.

2.2 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
1/2 pint cask, Abbotsford, Edinburgh. Bright golden colour with a small coarse white head. Glass is full of bubbles, so there seems to be quite a bit of carbonation in the beer. Nose is restrained, but there are some citrusy hops in the background. A more malty crisp hop aroma is more evident after a little while. Very flat, but smooth mouthfeel and a slight oily texture. Beer is served quite warm. Finishes with a light bitterness.

This is an excellent beer and im glad i found it in my wee tasting session in the bon accord. Aroma is grapefruit and grassy hops, very nice. Taste has the same flavours however theres a creamy texture that adds some depth to it but makes it soo drinkable. A wonderful beer, and i can assure you it is not retired.

UPDATED: FEB 9, 2006 A little sour, it smelled. Orange and gold in colour at the same time. It is good to know this brewery is back in bussiness.
