Rune (13507) - Tromsø, - FEB 13, 2013
500ml bottle bought at The MicroBar in Manchester and shared with Finn. Close to clear amber coloured body. Decent head-lacing. Grassy hops to the nose joined by a bread-like touch. Blended taste of leafy hops, dried fruits and caramel sweetness. Rather sharp, but short-lived, bittering endnotes. Just alright (on the train from Manchester to York, 26.01.2013).

[ As Ayr Towzie Tyke ].
Clear medium amber color with a average, frothy - fizzy and open, good lacing, mostly lasting, off-white head. Aroma is moderate malty, sweet malt, toasted, caramel, caramelized malt. Flavor is moderate sweet and light bitter with a average to long duration, sweet malt, caramel, pale malt, toasted. Body is medium, texture is oily to watery, carbonation is soft to flat. [20160219]

Nice sweet malty bitter, twiggy aroma. Unexciting. Ditto taste. Does have nice malts though, and finish is definitely twiggy. Sweetish, quite fruity esters. Easy to drink.

jamestulloch (4329) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - JUN 20, 2015
Bottle from The Beerhive. Hazy amber body with a thin off-white head. Steady carbonation. Light lacing. Aroma of grass, peach and orange. Flavour follows suit - fresh and fruity. Thin body with a watery, slight oily texture. Simple and tasty. I enjoyed it.

GlasgowTAD (1898) - Glasgow, SCOTLAND - JAN 2, 2015
Pours a clearish amber with a foamy large white head that recedes about half a fingers worth. Aroma is mango. Taste is mango, slight tropical fruit and mild bitter. It just seems to be lacking something, feels water.

rodbod (436) - Motherwell, SCOTLAND - DEC 24, 2014
pint in the Pot Still. A decent session beer, but not that exciting. Ayr do better beers than this.

Finn (8155) - Tromsø, NORWAY - FEB 16, 2014
Flaske 0,5l kjøpt på Microbar, Manchester. Delt med Rune på tog mellom Manchester og York 26 Jan 13. Gyldenbrun. Brukbart skum. God toffee aroma. Smaken er søt frukt med en syrlig bitter ettersmak. Avslutningen er tørket frukt.
