3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Really pleased to see three different bottles from this brewery at a party (4th Aug 2012): talked to the host and ensured I got all three to try.
This was the first: best before 14 July 2012, so just out of date, like the other two. Anyway it was poured into a glass tankard. Light to mid-amber look to it, head of white bubbles, stayed and gave some impressive lacing, so conditioning was good.
Bread/biscuity malt aroma, lightly baked, no burnt or heavy maltiness here, or in the taste.
Semi-sweet feel to the taste, caramel for sure with that malty molasses taste some brews now seem to have.
Iíve a sweet tooth, so I really enjoyed this as my starter for the evening.

2.6 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Tasted this in the Last Post, Paisley (JDW) in September 2010. Cask, handpump dispense. Opaque pale amber in colour with a thin creamy white head. Light peach note in the short fruity aroma. Thin resiny mouthfeel and good lacing. Pale malts give a digestive biscuit flavour with juicy fruit notes of clemantine and burnt toffee. Dusty hop resins give a dry citrusy edge to the brief aftertaste. Finish is malty with a slight note of marmalade in the mouth. A poor session Golden Ale.

2.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 11/20
On tap in Cloisters, Edinburgh. Pours a hazy amber with a good head. The nose has biscuits with a hint of ginger. The taste is more of the ginger biscuits and caramel on the end. The palate has a medium structure a full texture and a finish which could be better - a sweet and cloying unfortunately. Overall, happy to have tried one, but wonít look for it again.

3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
[cask at SRAFí09, Edinburgh] Amber/gold pour with a minimal head. Sweet, malty aromas with some citrus hop and grapefruit. Tasted far stronger than itís abv, which is something I wasnít expecting. Reasonable amount of sweetness on the palate, before the dry finish. Thereís something that doesnít seem to tie up the flavours, but itís certainly drinkable

2.7 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Bottle, courtesy of fonefan. Itís a clear, golden beer with a small, white head. Itís quite citrusy on the nose, pale malts in the back. Biscuits and a caramel touch. A bit thin on the palate, with pleasant carbonation. Bitterness, lemon and biscuity malts in the flavor. A rather boring one, but it drinks easily and doesnít taste bad at all. 110318
