Cask. Dark amber, hazy, a bit cloudy, very big foamy white head leaves some short-term lacing. Aroma is soapy. Body is light, low carbonation. Taste is watery with jasmine and maybe lavender - definite floral character in any case. Finishes with a soft bitterness.

Had this bitter in the Wee Howf, Paisley in May 1992. Cask, handpump dispense. Pale amber in colour with a thin white head. Slight malty aroma with marmalade notes, short in intensity. Pale malts noted in body with sweet Florida grapefruit and kiwi fruit evident. Dry floral hop in the dusty bitter aftertaste. Finish has a metallic edge to it. A decent session bitter.
