Bottle; filtered In Scotland we welcome the return of the sun whenever it deigns to shower us with its warm ray... the cloud and rain will jsut have to get over it. A light amber beer with lovely citrus aroma, slightly sweet and fruity.

Thanks to Seanyfo for this one! Pale orange in the glass, malty-neutral nose. The beer starts malty and bitter. Nicely smooth. Caramel, hints of citrus, but all a bit weak. A slightly sweet taste is in the foreground, bitterness comes closer to the end. Bloomy, flouwery hop-aroma join in as well. The aftertaste is long, a bit too sweet (for me), nicely bitter, floral hops and caramel malt.
--> all in all a very interesting brew! --> 11/12/10/10

50cl bottle thanks to Keith from Williams. Appearance - somewhere between golden and amber. Nose - very much malt dominated with just a touch of herby-citrus coming through to clean things up. Taste - honey nut cornflakes with lemon. Palate - medium bodied, creamy in texture and fairly refreshing finish. Overall - another good ale from Williams if not one of their best.

Bottled 02/11/13. A copper coloured beer with a hint of rose and a white head and lace. A really nice beer. Fruity citrus and turkish delight. A bit of soap too. A perfumed nose. Really tasty with great fruits. Very nice indeed.

Aivan hyvä makoinen olunen. Vähän loppumaku lyhyenläntä. Jostain syystä voisi toimia jäätelön kanssa.

jamestulloch (1046) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - OCT 4, 2013
Bottle from Aldi. Dull golden body with a thin off-white head. Light carbonation. No lacing. Aroma of wood, flowers and muted citrus. Definitely tasting the spruce in this. Very easy drinking. Thin body with a watery texture. Soft carbonation. An unusual Bitter because of the spruce element. A good session beer but it’s very thin.

Osprey87 (1160) - London via, WALES - SEP 7, 2013
Bottle. BB is smudged. No idea how old this is, but it’s been knocking around my flat for months. Time to drink it. Clear dark orange colour with a 1/2 cm of white head. Smells of orange. Taste is interesting - slight liquorice, orange, slightly sour lemon. Musty orange sweets. Yeasty. A flavour that is strange but nice and appetising. I can’t really explain it but it’s musty citrus, like the citrus flavours you get out of a wheat/wit beer. Pretty good and very drinkable. Better than expected. Body is light, not foamy in the mouth, carbonation is low for the style.

allmyvinyl (2163) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - AUG 29, 2013
500ml bottle at home. Pours clear amber with good long-lasting head. Muted aromas of honey and marmalade. Light sweetness and bitterness, some floral notes coming through. Light bodied, but creamy enough. A satisfying summer beer.

500ml bottle from Aldi. Golden ale with little head. Fragrant nose - citrus and floral. Sweet and fruity with hints of lemon. Perfect with crisps or nuts.
