Cask by handpump at Halfway House, Edinburgh (9 Jun 12) - clear golden ale, thin white head, vegetable aroma, malty, bitter with a bit of astringency, not my thing McNeillR (2315) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - MAR 18, 2012
Really safe hop notes, almost Lucozade style stagnant bubbles in a hefty carbonation. Almost cream soda wrapped hops, awkward for an IPA even at 5%. Nothing shining through from any angle on the palate. Frustrating safe rather than disappointing number. thepegjett (1260) - Cambridge (via Winnipeg), Cambridgeshire, ENGLAND - FEB 15, 2012

O - decent zacgillbanks (5169) - Tyne & Wear, ENGLAND - FEB 4, 2012
Dark golden in colour with toffee and caramel flavours and a woody bitter finish. onkelgobber (162) - Edinburgh, - DEC 17, 2011
Pours nice clear golden amber. Not much head. White with fairly large bubbles. Nice caramel aroma with a little bit of citrus. Medium bitter taste with very little sweetness. Light body with a thin texture and a bit of carbonation. Average lenght of finish with bitter notes. The hops are not coming through in a proper way though. Fairly average.

Aroma of sweetish malts, mild fruits, especially apricot, some grass also. Flavour is pretty much the same.
Bottle. Amber with white head. Nice nose. Hoppy bitter brew. Less hoppy than I would ideally want. jamestulloch (4108) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - NOV 15, 2011
UPDATED: JAN 19, 2015 Bottle from Vino Wines. Slightly hazy golden body with a thin white head. Steady carbonation. Nice lacing. Aroma of grass, lemon and biscuit. Flavour of grapefruit, straw and a dry, lemony finish. Medium body with an oily texture. Soft fizz. This has improved since I tried it over three years ago - the hop flavours are sharper and more ronounced. ration (2236) - Tampere, FINLAND - OCT 27, 2011
