2.8 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
330ml bottle, pours a slightly hazy gold with a small white head. Really struggled to get much of a nose from this beer, maybe very light fruit - melon - slight citrus and herbal notes. Sweet, light malt flavour giving way to a decent bitterish finish. Very subtle beer but has a nice balance going on. May be better accompanying food.

3.3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle from Oddibins. A very subtle offering from the Scottish Border brewers. I don't get the fruity thing but the long finish makes it worthwhile. Nice.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bottle from Aldi’s Scottish Beer Festival range. Pours pale gold. Aroma has a fruity twang. Really nice nose-full of musky hops. Sweet tropical fruits. Bit vinous. Full mouthfeel. Restrained carbonation. Sweet on the taste. Bit biscuity. Bit dry. Medium bitterness that rolls on for a while. My first brew from Tempest since they changed their game up a bit. We’re off to a great start here!

My favourite beer at the moment. Pale and hazy golden colour. Subtly sweet with slight citrusy bitterness. A complex, refreshing beer that looks great in glass - what more could you want of an evening?
