jfb (6569) - GERMANY - FEB 21, 2017
(cask) opalescent amber colour with a frothy off-white head. aroma of butterscotch and raisins, with some notes of almond milk and old malts. flavour is mostly the same, stale malts, oats and raisins, lots of müsli, with some light lactic acid and a slightly ethanolic semi-dry finish. medium-bodied with soft carbonation.

rodbod (418) - Motherwell, SCOTLAND - FEB 13, 2017
Bottle from Asda. Pours a pale amber with a frothy head which quickly subsides. Not much on the nose, some banana wateriness, a slight caramel malt note. Taste is light, mainly sweet malt with a smidgen of coppery metallic bitterness in the finish. Palate is light and short. I’d like to try this on draught before passing judgement. In bottle it’s decidely humdrum.

shoestring (420) - larkhall, SCOTLAND - NOV 5, 2016
Deep orange with fluffy head on pour.smoky malt in mouth . Thinnish burnt ending. OK and would take again but not that special or unique for marmalade in there too.

BeerNinjaUK (572) - Wiltshire, ENGLAND - JUL 23, 2016
330ml bottle from Asda Glasgow during trip to Scotland in June 2016. Pours mid amber with short white head. Aroma more malt than hops with loads of toffee, biscuit and orchard fruits. Rather buttery, and not quite bitter enough.

overtheline (137) - Inverness, SCOTLAND - JUN 18, 2016
330mo bottle pours deep good with little white head. Nose is sweet, vegetal with a bit of toffee. Taste is toffee and herbs, grassy hops. Slightly bitter finish with a decent medium bodied mouthfeel and light carbonation. Not really my thing and nothing here to get greatly excited by. Pleasant enough though.

Smithld1 (309) - Greater London, ENGLAND - FEB 26, 2016
very bland. I’m not too familiar with the style but it tastes like a crap golden ale. You can drink it but you ask yourself why?
