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.

prawlie (1227) - 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 (3415) - 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 (1368) - 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 (8089) - 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 (4834) - 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.
