Cask at cloisters. Pours clear pale gold, thin white head. Light citrus and herbal aromas. Taste is floral, more citrus. Light malt at the back. Good mouthfeel for the strength. Nice.

AshtonMcCobb (6604) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - JAN 20, 2014
On tap at the Southern. Appearance - golden some haze and a nice head. Nose - dry citrus and nettles. Taste - unripe grapefruit. Nettles and grass perhaps even going into green pepper. Palate - light bodied with a creamy despite the fact it’s low alcohol. Such a long fresh finish Overall - another great beer from Highland.

Scopey (14723) - Croydon, Greater London, ENGLAND - DEC 24, 2013
Cask at Moorings. It pours clear amber with a small white head. The nose is toast, grain, floral, potpourri and washing up liquid. The taste is crisp, floral, citrus peel, grapefruit, touch of soap and grain with a dry finish. Light-medium body and soft carbonation. Fine.

3.3
JohnRMurdoch (4867) - Glasgow, SCOTLAND - DEC 10, 2012
Cask @ The Counting House JDW. Golden yellow colour, good head. Mild resin hop aroma. Biscuit & citrus fruit flavour. Bitter aftertaste. More a golden ale than a bitter.

3.5
Stuartyboy (1668) - Ayr, SCOTLAND - DEC 6, 2012
Pale golden ale with sweet honey flavours complementing a fruity citrus flavour slightly bitter hoppy aftertaste which slightly detracts but nice beer with good flavour and low abv

3.2
mr_h (5500) - Ayr, SCOTLAND - DEC 6, 2012
Cask by handpump at Guildford Arms, Edinburgh - clear golden, good off-white head, mild fruity, citrus hop aroma, initial sweetness which becomes dominated by a bitter / sour citrus aftertaste

3.5
Benjii (3049) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - DEC 22, 2011
On cask at Cloisters. Pours a golden colour with a thin white head. Aroma of alcohol, grassy hops and caramel. Similar flavours with mild carbonation and an oily mouth-feel. Just a little cloying to finish.

RichardW (1813) - Carlisle, Cumbria, ENGLAND - DEC 19, 2010
Cask, Bacchus, Newcastle. Dry and hoppy, pale and fruity. Melon in the aroma, grapefruit in the finish. A top quality brew.
