500ml bottle at home. Clear golden pour with very little head. Aromas, such as they are, are buttery, lightly floral, some generic fruitiness. Light sweetness, could do with more bitterness. OK.

Filipbeer (163) - - AUG 26, 2013
Golden beer with white and not very long head. Very nice and curious: orange and chocolate aroma. Also some hoppy and spicy notes. In mouth light flavor (orange peel), medium body, bitter taste and dry finish. Low carbonation. Quite nice beer despite a too light flavor. Amazing aroma. Filip

jmgreenuk (8837) - Kuala Lumpur, MALAYSIA - APR 26, 2013
Bottle from Cotteridge Wines, Birmingham. Poured a clear medium amber with a broken white head. The aroma is malty with a little yeast. The flavour is medium bitter, little creamy and with a zesty hoppy palate. A nice refreshing ale. Perfect for the summer.

500ml bottle. Pours an inviting light golden colour, with good frothy head. Malt aroma and taste with bitter citrus aftertaste. At 5%, its far stronger than it tastes. Perfect accompaniment to nuts and crisps.

UPDATED: JUN 16, 2014 Biscuity malt and slightly bitter hops, this is the best of the Arran offerings I have had tonight. Quite refreshing. Poor head retention.
