Bottle BBE: 28 Jun ’16. Well-chilled. Pours a clear rich golden, verging on pale amber. The head is small-medium, off-white, a little creamy and patchy. Good lacing. Prominent acetic acid on the nose, real ’fish and chip’ vinegar style. A little vanilla honeyed sweetness and sour green apples. Medium sweetness prevails over a light sourness, with a pleasant, light, crisp bitterness to finish. Light-medium bodied with a gentle, bristly texture. Carbonation is medium-high, and the finish is short but pleasant. Overall a decent, sessionable pale ale, but the vinegarry note is a bit strong. Genuinely a good pair for fish and chips. sdmmb (1976) - BELGIUM - JUL 31, 2015
Drunk from 50cl bought as present by parents from their Scotland trip. Enjoyable golden ale.

Pours a pale golden colour with a white head. Citrus hop aroma and the taste is malt initially but then a lasting hop bitterness.

Overheard: "The largest of the grouse family." "It’s not aerodynamically designed."
Cask at the Kay’s Bar, Edinburgh. Pours golden with yellow white head. Mild, fruity aroma. Biscuit malty, light fruit flavor. mighty_meadow (308) - Kilwinning, SCOTLAND - AUG 1, 2014
500ml bottle from tesco
Looks highly carbonated when pouring but the fizz is thankfully gentler. Keeps a decent head though. Quite earthy in aroma and taste. Like sticking your head out of a tent in the middle of a field at dawn. Quite hoppy finish but not as grapefruity as some other ales
Gets more interesting as you get further down the glass. Nice one.
