UPDATED: NOV 24, 2010 Cask @ Paisley Beer Festival, also bottle from Scottish Real Ale Shop. Aroma of peach & citrus fruit. Slighty cloudy golden yellow colour. Dry citrus fruit flavour with bitter aftertaste. Current bottle a bit homebrewish previous samples better - quality inconsistent.

Cask at Thomson’s. Pours amber gold with a good white head & lacing. Subtle tropical fruit and cereal aromas, more on the taste, and a slightly soapy mouthfeel and flavour. Bit astringent on the finish. Not bad.

Cask at the Pear Tree.
Almost no head, golden body. Lots of lemon on the nose. Flavour is citrus fruit, a little bitterness on the aftertaste. No carbonation. Pretty good all round.

On cask at Congress, Longton. Pours golden amber. Hoppy aroma but the the beer is not overly hopped. Giving a refreshing chuggable IPA. Good stuff.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle. Promising aroma that is strong lemon with a brett hint. Flavour is muted compared to the aroma - lemon, grapefruit, sweet malt and bitter finish. A average beer that could’ve been a lot better.

2.6 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 11/20
Bottle @ CPK. Thanks to Leighton for the pour. Slight gusher. Pours a light gold color with a medium white head. The nose is dusty barnyard, some peach, mild grain. The taste shows a mild infection. Funky brett, pastoral grass, hints of peach and sweet grain. Light body, soft carbonation. Overall, this beer was definitely out of sorts. The brett actually added a playful dimension to the flavor. Still, not great on this showing.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottle shared at CPK, London. Gushes a bit upon opening. Pours a lightly hazy gold with a creamy, white head. Dusty malt nose with hints of tang and dirt. Light sweet flavor, certainly tangy though not fully infected. There’s some hay and straw, hints of dirty grass. Light bodied with high carbonation - excessively high, as with most infected-ish beers I’ve had. Light sweet finish, mild citrus, dirty hay. Too bad the condition is off. The bottle had a good five months before going bast its Best Before date, so definitely a pity.
