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.

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.

cask blackfriars new years eve- cheers tom for this one!! ! extremely drinkable ipa, very sweet though, hops played second fiddle to the sweet and somewhat extreme malty character of this ale. still, quite good. cider accents in finish.

hughie (3996) - Bedford, Bedfordshire, ENGLAND - OCT 8, 2010
Cask, gravity, at Bedford Beer Festival ’10. Copper amber. Malty aroma with hints of brown wrapping paper. . Leafy malt taste, quite simple and enjoyable. Some bitterness. Middle of the road. Decent ale.

AshtonMcCobb (2349) - 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.
