jamestulloch (1046) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - JUL 25, 2012
UPDATED: OCT 3, 2013 Aroma: Lime, faint lychee, honey and bread.

Appearance: Hazy golden body with a lasting pure white head. Medium carbonation and excellent lacing.

Taste: Soft malty flavours. Flavours of grass, caramel and honey. Quite boozy.

Palate: Medium body with an oily texture. Lively carbonation.

Overall: Tastes quite heavy for its 5.5% ABV, but this is a tasty, moreish American Pale Ale.
