tombyars (1556) - Saltcoats, SCOTLAND - MAR 12, 2012
Tasted this premium bitter in the Last Post, Paisley (JDW) in April 2010. Cask, handpump dispense. Crystal clear pale copper in colour with a thin white head. Dusty floral notes in the intense hop aroma. Good robust mouthfeel and poor lacing. Pale malts give complex juicy fruit notes of kiwi, lychees and hints of elderflowers. Bitter hop resins give a dry woody note in the short aftertaste. Good bitter sweet balance in the moreish finish. An excellent session ale and highly recommended.

Cask at Oliver Twist. Thinn lace. Pale amber color. Marvelous Brittish hop aroma with some nice pale malts in the background. After some time a small but lasting citrus bitterness in the taste. A litle too sweet for a top score.

Cask conditioned at a Wetherspoons. Gold with white head. One of the better festival beers, some hop notes, deeper malty body with a freshness belying its age. Moderate fruity notes. A decent drinker.
