tombyars (1650) - Saltcoats, SCOTLAND - JAN 5, 2012
3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
First tasted this in the Saltcot, Saltcoats (JDW) in March 2001. Cask, handpump dispense. Clear pale yellow in colour with a thin white head. Strong lemon zest in the long fruity aroma. Thin resiny mouthfeel and good lacing throughout. Pale malt base gives a strong citric fruit flavour with lemons to the fore. Dry aromatic hop resins leaves a pithy bitter aftertaste. Finish is dry and astringent, more than Bitter &Twisted. A decent session bitter.

Amber colour. Really flowery aroma. Malt sweet nose, rather light bodied. Pleasant light sparkling mouthfeel. Drier, resiny, very bitter finish. Hop juice!
