jamestulloch (1391) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - JAN 31, 2014
Cask at The Other Place. Clear golden body with a medium white head that holds well. Excellent lacing. Aroma of straw, tangerine and pale malt. Flavour of sweet orange and soft pale malt. Medium body with an oily mouthfeel. Light carbonation prickle. A bit overly sweet for my taste, but quite nice all the same.

AshtonMcCobb (2549) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - JAN 7, 2014
On tap @ the Red Squirrel. Appearance - golden and some head. Nose - grassy but quite honeyed. Taste - more of the same. Palate - light to medium bodied, with an alright finish. Overall - poor by William’s standards. Lacks hoppy zip!

MalcolmTucker (740) - SCOTLAND - JAN 21, 2013
Cask at the Golf Tavern for Super Sunday. Slight above average golden ale with a tasty hop profile from the new world hops. An solid session beer.

JOHNS17 (21) - Glasgow, SCOTLAND - JAN 19, 2013
Cask Last Post. Light golden and perfect condition. Nelson Sauvin dominate the nose and Amarillo dig in on the palate. Good effort from brewer I find it hard to fall in love with.

Cask conditioned handpump Southampton Arms London. A yellow gold coloured beer. Great tropical fruit citrussy aromas. Really fresh tasting. Nice and zesty. Refreshing and easy drinking yet very tasty. Really good hopping. I liked this.
