Lovely white beer brewed close to my home town. Will do a better review later but this is a lovely beer for sipping. Best Ive had in a while.

Cask by handpump at Glenpark Hotel, Ayr - fruity / citrus hop aroma, slightly hazy deep golden ale, but it cleared as it warmed up (served just a little bit cold), medium off-white head, sweet, citrus and smooth, slightly dry finish, this is a lovely drink and is very easy to drink, which does not reflect it’s alcohol content

cask at cloister ... golden amber .... thin white head ... soft malt ... light fruit nose ... some chocoate and light roast ... nice full mouthfeel ... quite fruity ... this by far the best and only one to come close to the stout feel ... ome soft orange ... juicy ... thats really nice ...

75cl bottle. Pours golden, almost clear and with a nice head. The nose has pale malt, meadow flowers and a sweet custard note. The taste has more of the custard and floral notes and there’s just a little bit of pineapple in there too. The palate is great - a large but elegant structure, with a big creamy texture through the middle section and an elegant, gradually tapering away finish. Overall, I really like this, it’s not a stout as we know it these days, an Imperial Blonde perhaps or a Belgian Blonde but using British yeasts. Great!

Gravity at SRAF. Pale yellow colour, thin white bubbles. Lemon meringue pie, hint of white chocolate, light apricot, light fruitcake spice on the nose. Velvety smooth, lemon and vanillla, custard, resinous hops, crramy and sweet but still light. Dessert wine esque. Nice light bitterness on the finish. Really really interesting, I’m unconvinced by the whole "white stout" fad, but this is definitely my favourite of the ones I’ve had. Great beer.
