MannyGoldberg (259) - Brooklyn, New York, USA - DEC 22, 2013
Keg version in the clubhouse at Gleneagles Hotel- 22nd Dec 2013. Pale yellow with lightly retaining head, minimal lacing. Light citrus notes on the nose, some tangerine. Flavour wise the sharpness of the Cascade rides over the Amarillo. Some delayed orange/lemon. Benefits from the carbonation vs. the cask version I've had previously. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

elbernays (1731) - Dublin, IRELAND - NOV 23, 2013
These Fyne ales are quite similar and think I should have drank another beer between this and jarl. Clear gold, Citrus hop aroma, some bready notes. Sweet sherbert flavours. Light body. These are nice refreshing beers if not that different from one another.
