Hello again Kelburn. This is a significant improvement. Sorry I know its called beer and yet its flat. Perhaps rate beer should create a rateflatbeer website. Or is there not enough demand for that either?! :P. So anyway as someone from downunder it is an experience to have these ales from cask. The original way. Having had that experience a little too much I have some views on it now. This beer is pretty good. Nice colour. Not much smell. And you tastes more like a summer ale even though its December in 3.5 hours and Im in Scotland. So yes nice hops and lemongrass and berry (blackcurrent with an undertone of gooseberry) flavours. Get another one up ya. Enjoy.

Light golden slightly hazey beer with a small white head. Not a huge aroma but getting some bready pilsner type aroma. Taste is of biscuit going into a lemon malt and then a slow ever increasing slight grapefruit bitterness. Pretty decent, I liked it, without being blown away. Would buy again.

Clear golden beer, tangy grapefruit aroma, tangy-sour citrus flavour. Theres some bitter hop in there but not enough to stop it being a touch sickly. Went a bit flat too but that may be how it was kept. Not bad.

Bottle from Growler Beers. Clear golden body with a medium white head. Low carbonation. Faint lacing. Aroma of grass, biscuit and pale malt. Flavour of lemony, spicy hops and a grassy finish. Thin body with an oily mouthfeel. Light fizz. A clean, well balanced beer. Decent.
