500ml bottle: BBE Aug 2018. Poured into an Abbot Ale badged glass tankard at home on 20th Sep 2017. Slight haze to the golden body, white blanket of foaming bubbles on top. Not too sure what 'porridge oats' bring to the beer but I liked the brew. The aroma was fairly low key (might have over cooled the beer) with mild hints of malty molasses and floral notes. Taste was a nice blend of hop bitterness and malty/honey like semi-sweetness, the hops winning the battle. This was an easy drinking, refreshing beer with lively carbonation. Picked the bottle up from an Aldi in Edinburgh earlier in the year. ianwelby (1588) - SCOTLAND - JUL 1, 2017
Clear yellow beer, good white head. A very faint hint of caramel and citrus in the aroma but not much. Flavour has the same, with a bit of tartness as well. It mellows out into almost nothing after that, just a lingering hint of caramel amongst an otherwise watery finish. It’s fine. It’s crisp and refreshing.

Keg at Uig Hotel Skye. Pours clear gold with small head. Aroma very slight. Some grain and faint citrus. Taste was mild malt and citrus. The oats don’t seem to offer much in the way of mouthfeel or body. Quite a bland beer. Maybe OK for a hot day session drink. Not great. Piw (1304) - Rüsselsheim, GERMANY - MAY 18, 2017

550ml bottle. Pours a light gold with an off white head. Nose is sweet malt, biscuit, honey and something a bit floral. Creamy light mouth feel. Taste is fairly subtle but has a slight stout like taste with a honey malt with a slight orange bitterness from the hops. Overall pretty decent for a light ale. shoestring (439) - larkhall, SCOTLAND - SEP 2, 2016
Burnt orange colour with nice fluffy head that tightened a bit when settled. Clear. Not much nose. Easily drunk. Not very complex but drinkable. Dry finish. Would never know porridge oats in there but a little something in palate nybol (2459) - DENMARK - JUL 3, 2016
Let humlet, meget sødlig. En god ale, der er sødlig tør i det. Ale som det skal være. Heidbummer (1035) - SCOTLAND - MAY 26, 2016
Pint Wetherspoons. Pours light amber, transient head. Faint malty aroma. It’s a bitter, and it’s pleasantly bitter. No real complexity. Decent pint, but nothing special.
