rondphoto (4445) - Lakeside Park, Kentucky, USA - JUL 22, 2017
on tap @ St Andrews / St Andrews --- Aroma of Malt. Cloudy medium amber, ivory head that dtops quickly to the rim, splotches of lace. Taste is malt, light carbonation, and a good shot of herbal hops. Simple and balanced. Works well.

ReV2 (178) - Northampton, Northamptonshire, ENGLAND - JUN 27, 2017
Bottle from Morrison’s in Berwick-upon-Tweed. Poured golden with a white head, some sediment in the bottle. Taste was somewhat lacking, not much in the way of hops or body to speak of. Er, refreshing, that will do. Just about worth the £1 I paid for it.

downender (8659) - Bristol, Gloucestershire, ENGLAND - JUN 18, 2017
Bottle from Morrisons in Glasgow. Golden in colour, with a decent, white, head. An easy drinking pale with a touch of citrus character, biscuity malts and a dryish finish. Fine.

scotty (1208) - SCOTLAND - MAY 18, 2017
Bottle from a wine shop in St Andrews, can’t remember it’s name, but it’s well worth popping into if you’re in the town...great range of beers, wines and spirits...not cheap tho! Anyway, this is rather nice! Clean golden colour, nice finger thick white head, good citrus hop nose, nicely balanced malt/hop palate. Good stuff, like it!

radassace (323) - SCOTLAND - FEB 16, 2017
330ml bottle. Pours a hazy honey amber, with some small amounts of sediment floating around. Nose is citrus orange peel and lime and a bit of bready malt. Very thin mouth feel and dry on the aftertaste, but nice enough with those citrus hop notes. There is some flowery sweet element to the beer too. Good beer for a summers day I think as it’s light are very quaffable.

CroccyLc (13) - Paisley, SCOTLAND - OCT 10, 2016
Bottle conditioned unfiltered unpasteurised 330ml. Pours cloudy. Zero carbonation. Nice aroma. Nice pineapple and then Earthy, bitter hop aftertaste. I like. Like a bottle of Barrs pineappleade with American west coast hops.

nimbleprop (8382) - SouthWest, Washington, Washington DC, USA - AUG 5, 2016
Sampled at the brewpub, pours a clear gold with some creamy, white head. Nose is what you expect, fruit, yeast, honey, grist. Nothing stands out. Flavor improves a touch, more flowers and chrysanthemum clear, some honey, some dough, some biscuit. Dry finish.

3.4
ladnewton (1963) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - MAR 29, 2016
Cask at CPK, Pimlico on 15th March 2016. Pale gold with shallow off white non-lacing foam. Malt, fruit and yeasts in aroma. Fruity in-mouth with berries, tart citrus and a touch of fresh apple. Herby, grassy finish. Medium-bodied with a light mouthfeel.

3.2
Evilkniamhel (955) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - FEB 4, 2016
From bottle. Pours clear yellowy gold, with aromas of cereal, citrus fruit and grass. Taste is nicely bitter with a dry finish.

2.3
beerjock (48) - - OCT 1, 2015
Another one from this brewery with very faint hints of citrus in the aroma and not much else. Pours a nice light golden colour with a light white head. Tastes between a lager and an average ale (In my opinion) Drinkable but nothing that would make me pick it off the shelf again.
