AshtonMcCobb (2574) - 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 (825) - 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 (6865) - 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 (4476) - 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.

mr_h (2879) - Ayr, SCOTLAND - FEB 14, 2013
Cask by handpump at Pot Still, Glasgow - clear golden amber, thin creamy off-white head, floral aroma, high carbonation, initial sweetness, somewhat bland, mild citrus, thin bodied

Palme (3380) - Bergen, NORWAY - OCT 14, 2012
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 itís light caramel-ish and buttery. Quite low, some grains and sweet corns perhaps? Dull and not exciting. Itís 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 thatís actually in this one tastes old and not to good. Drinkable but quite boring and forgettable. 16.06.2012

pivoveskotsku (201) - SCOTLAND - JUL 21, 2012
Cask. Light golden colour, aroma is a touch hoppy and floral, taste is citrusy and not much else. Canít say I enjoyed it a great deal.

ClubGonzo (4025) - Bergen, NORWAY - JUN 22, 2012
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...
