Cask, Regular;
A beer that is as laid back as you could ever get! Light and refreshing fruit salad undertones complemented with a hefty dose of zing.

Cask Cumberland Byker. Rating 1000! First sip blew me away. Lychee and mango aroma, the softest fruitiest palate, smooth as you could ask for and drinks far too easily for 5%. This is a classic.

stravale (2123) - Near Carrick-on-Shannon, IRELAND - JUN 23, 2012
Cask @ The Caley, Edinburgh 160612
Blonde yellow, clear, frothy white head with some lacing
Aroma of light pale malts, hint of hops, dull nose
Taste of light golden malts, touch of spicy peppery hops, light citrus, slightly metallic, bit dull
Palate - soft carb, thin body. Finish as main flavour, full, hint of metal on the tail
Overall - Very ordinary blonde ale - I have no idea why Tempest brew this - it’s not a patch on the other beers I’ve tried from them which are generally excellent

Light haze on this pale god beer. Little white head. Very light palate with equally light carbonation. Mild tangy hop, orange and tangerine with some dried fruits. Semi dry finish. Okay but lacks any substance.
