Cask by handpump at Hengler’s Circus, Glasgow - clear golden, good creamy off-white head, aroma and flavour is yeast, caramel, hint of citrus on the flavour, very easy to drink, tombyars (1702) - Saltcoats, SCOTLAND - JAN 20, 2012
First tasted this in Gabriels, Paisley in February 1999. Cask, handpump dispense. Crystal clear pale straw in colour with a thin white head. Strong lemon peel note evident in the intense fruity aroma. Thin resiny mouthfeel and good lacing throughout. Pale malt gives a slight digestive biscuit note but this is soon lost to the tart citric notes of grapefruit and lemon zest which rapidly build up. Astringent dusty hop resins give a very dry aftertaste. Finish is again dry with hop resins and oak cask very much in evidence in the dessication process. Not one of my favourites for Winter.

On cask at Cloisters. Pours a golden colour with a decent white head. Aroma of musty yeast, caramel and hay. Similar flavours with a little lemon to finish. Moderate carbonation and a foamy mouth-feel. AshtonMcCobb (6615) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - DEC 30, 2011
UPDATED: JAN 8, 2012 Re-rate @ Steam Packet, Isle of Whithorn.
Pours amber with a decent head. The nose has malt and grapes. The taste has biscuits and sultanas. The palate is medium in structure and texture and there is a clean finish. Overall, a great improvement since this pub seems to be able to keep its ales well.

On cask at Bert’s Bar, Edinburgh. Pours golden with a slim head. The nose has soggy Frosties and a mild yeast aroma. The taste is green apple and hay which makes me think it has gone off. The palate is medium bodied and medium textured with a burnt astringent finish. Overall, not good at all but I don’t think this is how the brewer wanted it to taste, so it deserves another try in the future. KnutAlbert (6754) - Oslo, NORWAY - DEC 23, 2010
Cask at Tiles, Edinburgh. Malty, a hint of yeast. Fine and sublte bitter finish. Nothing amazing about this, and nothing seasonal, either. An honest bitter.
