tombyars (1672) - Saltcoats, SCOTLAND - APR 26, 2017
Tasted this in the Last Post, Paisley (JDW) on the 6th April 2017. Cask, handpump dispense. Clear copper in colour with a thin creamy pale buff head. Hoppy aroma has a distinct cat pee note lurking in the background. Thin resiny mouthfeel and excellent lacing. Mixed malts deliver a light digestive biscuit base with pulpy watermelon flavour present. Slight hop presence gives a light resiny aftertaste which lacks really conviction. Finish is slightly hoppy with dry rye grain and kiwi fruit evident in the mouth. Standard session bitter.,

MartinT (9765) - Montreal, Quebec, CANADA - JUL 21, 2016
My Bottom Line:
This mineral Bitter shares shy caramel and oranges in an easygoing body.

Further Personal Perceptions:
-A sheet of foam tops the clear amber.
-This brewerys mineral character (very hard water?) smells like morning dew on rocks.
-The mouthfeel still manages to be silky and engaging.
-Flavor profile is non distinct, both on the malt and hop front.

On cask at Ye Olde Pumphouse, Hastings.

Mad_Ferret (1014) - Stockholm, SWEDEN - JUN 23, 2016
Keg at Bishops Arms Folkungagatan. Slight hazy and golden with a short fluffy white head. A bit weird aroma of yogurth, butter and lemon. Taste is fairly dry with lemon, oranges, faint butter, hay and dough. Medium to light body, soft carb, soft to dry palate. Quite drinkable. But really nothing special.

djoeye (4599) - Troms, NORWAY - MAY 23, 2016
Look; off-white head on clear orange golden body. Aroma; fruits, grassy juicy mild hops, pale caramel malts, meadowsweet notes. Taste; wort, malts, fruity soft hops, nut notes, small notes of roasted malts, faint meadowsweet hint, moving to a malty soft finish with small hops . Palate; fresh, clean, normal body, easy to drink. Overall; no doubt this is a good brew. [[email protected] Lule Sweden]

kidmartinek (4999) - austin, Texas, USA - MAY 6, 2016
Clear Copper with a dense head. Weak aroma of hops and grain. The flavor is all barley. It has a over-medium bite which diffuses some of this. Very natural tasting.
