Nilz (382) - Glasgow, SCOTLAND - MAR 6, 2013
UPDATED: MAR 23, 2013 500ml bottle pours a clear light amber ale with a prominent white head. Aroma is a fresh fruity mix. Taste is full of a hoppy sweetness and some caramel and fruitiness. It has a pleasant striking bitterness but balanced. Great tasting stuff.

Bottle. Golden beer with a white head. Fruity hop aroma. More fruit (pineapple) in the flavour with a good zesty bitterness. Nice caramel malt backbone. Dry finish.

jamestulloch (1328) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - APR 4, 2012
Aroma: Dampened by huge, pillowy head. Caramel and oranges.

Appearance: Hazy amber body. Massive, frothy white head with good retention. Visible carbonation. Excellent, sticky lacing.

Taste: Earthy malt flavour supported by hoppy, pineapple notes. Hints of caramel.

Palate: Medium bodied with a slick mouthfeel. Soft carbonation. Dry, bitter finish.

Overall: Much better than the thin, watery Tryst Cascade.

Fine golden ale with a mild hop aroma, and much more stated within its taste.

Cask at Cloisters. Vivid bright yellow pour, thin white head. Great fruity hop nose, pineapple, lychee, really juicy. Similar palate, some peppery bitterness. Long bitter finish. Juicy and tasty, just a tiny bit thin for me.

BenH (2258) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - FEB 19, 2012
Cask at Caley. Golden with white head. Minimal aroma, musty malt and yeast with a little peppery fruit hop. Similar taste, not much going on, inoffensive, some caramel, some peppery hop. Sorry Rich, I’m with Craig, it’s dull.

BeerCast_Rich (1847) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - JAN 27, 2012
[cask at Bow Bar Winter Festival 2011, Edinburgh] Golden amber pour, thick white head. Enormously fruity aroma - pineapple, lychee and mango. Tropical fruit on the flavour, but with a great caramel edge. Love the balance of the sweet, rich fruit flavour from the hop and the subtle caramel notes – fantastic. Nothing dull about this - make this a regular, John! [26012012]

McNeillR (1140) - SCOTLAND - JAN 26, 2012
UPDATED: FEB 19, 2012 Solid husky yellow, firm head on top of a dry citrus scent. Tight and unassuming kick, with a clinical linger. Very firm palate ticking. Decent without being too experimental. (Cask, Bow Bar Edinburgh (Winter Beer Fest))

TheCametron (1780) - CZECH REPUBLIC - JAN 26, 2012
Cask at The Bow Bar. Clear golden. Thin white head. Nice, light hoppy presence. Crisp. Dry.

Benjii (3049) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - JAN 26, 2012
On cask at the Bow Bar Beer Festival, 2012. Pours a golden colour with a thin white head. A lovely hoppy aroma of passion fruit, pineapple and caramel. Similar flavours with pineapple upfront followed by passion fruit and mango. A nice caramel malt backbone also. Mild carbonation and an oily mouth-feel. Lovely.
