This delightfully refreshing pale golden beer has a complex and fruity aroma and satisfying aftertaste. Hand brewed in the heart of Scotland with only the finest malted barley, choicest hops, yeast and pure Scottish water.

bottle, light floral aroma, golden, clear, white foam, light sweetness, medium bitterness, light body, slick feel, average carbonation, easy drinkable but will not recognize the taste again so nothing special

Aroma of wheat and straw. Taste is pretty much the same with some corn and light bitter hops. Not my favourite.

imdownthepub (10654) - Banbury, Oxfordshire, ENGLAND - DEC 10, 2013
Bottled, 500ml from Tesco in Dingwall, Highlands. Gold with short white head. This proved to be a slightly sour, mashy, malty beer, thin on the palate, a little insipid. There is a later sweetness with a slight vegetable note, parsnip perhaps. Itís drinkable but not one to return to.

Pale yellow complexion with plenty of pale ale character in both aroma and taste. Little head and a medium body.

Cheap as chips. 500ml brown bottle from Aldi. A rather watery looking copper-orange-ginger colour. Not attractive. I mean, it looks thin and cheap. Taste is OK. Malt is thin, but not too dry, and thereís an attractive hop flavour which lifts the beer slightly. Itís clean, drinkable and not unattractive. Iíd be quite happy to drink a few of these in place of cheap lagers.

johndoughty (4114) - cheslyn hay, West Midlands, ENGLAND - JAN 30, 2013
Bottle. Not in a very traditional style but an all round pleasant beer. Golden and clear with a very pleasant hoppiness.Slightly bitter Finnish. Well balanced and easy to drink.

mighty_meadow (247) - Kilwinning, SCOTLAND - JAN 25, 2013
500ml Bottle from Aldi. Burns Night beer to toast the bard. Surprisingly sweet at beginning but tails off to a tart finish. Fairly nondescript but not all bad. Keeps itís appearance throughout. Possibly the best I have tasted yet from this particular brewer.

Pours a golden yellow with a small white ring around the glass. Aromas of sweet pale malts, straw, lightly toasted, light grassy hops. Flavours are sweet pale malts, almost a little sour, light grassy hops and mild bitterness.

Reimer96 (1343) - Alberta, CANADA - JAN 19, 2013
Pours a clear golden color with a small. All white hat that leaves some lace. Aroma of mild toasted pale malt sweetness & an uneasant off fruity esther. Taste is sweet bready pale malts with a very minimal grassy hop flavor in the background. Finish is medium dry with some sweetness present. Very easy drinking malt forward beer.
