3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle from Utobeer, Londonshire. It pours clear gold with a thick white head. The nose is soft, sweet, floral, lemon parfait, biscuit, lemon cheesecake, honeysuckle and toasted grain. The taste is crisp, clean, bitter - sweet, honeyed porridge, cereal, some light grain, biscuit, lemon - lime, white pepper and straw with a dry finish. Medium body and moderate carbonation. Some nice subtle nuances to it. A pretty solid Scottish golden ale, not that it is my favourite style.
