On cask at Drygate, pours a clear, dark gold with some ringing, lacing, white head. Nose is very inviting, mild tropical fruit, mango and melon mostly, plenty of soft flowers, a little lemon, a little herbal tea, some yeast. Flavor follows, quite floral with dandelions and chrysanthemums, light tea, light lemon, a little tangerine, some guava, some mango, some melon, a little lime, faint candy. Finished lightly creamy, lightly oily. Exceptional.

Scopey (14257) - Croydon, Greater London, ENGLAND - SEP 23, 2012
Draft on a number of occasions, including originally at the brewery. It pours golden orange/amber, with a medium white head. The nose is like tropical fruit juice: orange, mango, pineapple and passion fruit. The taste is passion fruit, orange, grapefruit, zesty lemon, pineapple and grass, with a decent malt backbone and bitter finish. Medium body and fine carbonation. Delicious and packed full of flavour for this percentage.

Cask at The Southern. Pale golden orange, thick white head. Lovely juicy nose, grapefruit, pineapple, citrus zest, light biscuit malts. Nice light (but not thin) palate, juicy tropical flavours and a well-judged soft bitterness. Lovely.

stravale (3019) - Near Carrick-on-Shannon, IRELAND - JUL 4, 2012
Cask @ The Golden Rule, Edinburgh
Golden amber, clear, thick white creamy head, good lacing
Aroma - sweet fruity malts, apricot, peaches, sweet mellow citrus
Taste - sweet fruity malts, soft apricot and citrus, hint of banana, tropical fruits, soft sweet caramel malts, some bitter grassy hop in the background. Good flavour for the abv - not over hoppy bitter but the fruits are still there
Palate - soft carb, thin to medium body, bit oily, smooth. Finish as main flavour, nice grassy hop on the tail
Overall - This is a really good session beer - lots of flavour for the abv without lots of hop bitterness.

Craft Islington. Clear gold beer, little white head. Light palate, mild carbonation. Decent but mild hops - pronounced tangerine with a tiny bit of skunk. Finishes semi dry. Simple stuff done very well. Really like the tangerine.
