mighty_meadow (246) - Kilwinning, SCOTLAND - NOV 7, 2014
500ml bottle from Aldi (Scottish Ale Festival). Lovely grapefruit aroma on opening. Nice golden colour with fine white head. Taste is a bit disappointing at first but gradually the subtle fruit flavours start to come through. Nice carbonation but overall decent enough without being outstanding.

Velkyal (298) - Gordonsville, Virginia, USA - JUL 20, 2014
On cask at the castle tavern. Pours a rich amber with an inch of slightly off white foam, a bit darker than i would have expected really. Aroma is light citrus, tangerines mostly, with traces of lime. Flavour is a solid malt base, layered with toffee, zingy lemon and a touch of spice in the background. Light-medium body, easy drinkability. Nice.

uckelman (319) - Durham, ENGLAND - MAY 24, 2014
Cask on tap. Pours hazy medium golden, dappled white head. Hints of hop---not so strong, but this is not an IPA, after all. Light body, a bit oily/silky, good mouthfeel.
