Burgers (322) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - SEP 13, 2014
Golden colour with a fair amount of suspension and a white head. Aromas indistinct fruit and hops. Taste lacking in bitterness. Other than a bit of ginger aroma and burn itís very bland. Tastes flat almost immediately. Not dreadful but not far off.

Hazy pale golden beer with a light pineapple flavour and strong pineapple in the taste underneath the more bitter hit on the tongue. Nicely balanced and quite drinkable.

Nilz (383) - 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 (1381) - 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.

dantheman278 (1361) - SCOTLAND - FEB 28, 2012
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 (2321) - 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, Iím with Craig, itís dull.
