Aroma of caramel from the malt and grass/hay. Light sweetness in the flavour with medium bitterness. A reasonably good ale.

Pours a pale amber with a frothy white head. Moderate lacing. Starts malty sweet, finishes bitter. Overall, not a favorite, but quite drinkable.

downender (8774) - Bristol, Gloucestershire, ENGLAND - JUN 18, 2017
Bottle from a Morrisons in Glasgow. Amber in colour, with a decent, white, head. Sweet, malty, bitter with dense malts, some floral hops, light fruitiness and a moderately bitter finish. Fine.

scotty (1221) - SCOTLAND - MAR 8, 2017
Bottle. Clean amber in colour, thin but long lasting head. Malt dominates the palate with some gentle hops in the background. Quite light in body, to be expected at 4% I guess. Not bad!

radassace (409) - SCOTLAND - SEP 26, 2016
500ml bottle from Morrisons. Looks good nice amber with 2 finger off white head. Aroma is nice caramel fresh melon elderflower. Taste however for me is too thin and tamed back, probably the style but its not really doing anything for me. Light dry slightly hoppy lemon finish. Drinkable but wouldn’t spend any more than £1.50 a bottle which was what I paid for it as it was on offer.

LED40 (121) - Aberdeen, SCOTLAND - MAR 20, 2016
Pours dark amber with a thick creamy white head. Notes of biscuit and citrus fruits are most apparent on the nose. The taste is hop forward but well balanced with a malty back bone and mild caramel sweetness. The body is rich and velvety with a thick head and medium to high carbonation leaving lacing on the side of the glass. Overall, an excellent representation of the style and one that I will go back to again.
