Scopey (14778) - Croydon, Greater London, ENGLAND - MAY 5, 2014
Cask at the Isles Inn, Portree. It pours hazy gold with a thick white head. The nose s is sweet, doughy, grainy and light toast. The taste is toasty, doughy, grainy, cereal, underlying sweetness and lemon with a dry, sort of bitter finish. Medium body and fine carbonation. A fairly ho hum golden, from a brewery that I know can do a lot better.

ComradeK (1236) - Sydney, AUSTRALIA - APR 1, 2014
500ml bottle. Pours a clear medium gold, with a very large white head, which lasts well and leaves decent lacing. Crisp, spicy pilsener hops lift the aroma, but doughy yeast drags it back down again. Spicy, mildly peppery hops up front give way to white bread malt and doughy yeast in the mid-palate. Crisp, pilsener hops finish it off. Overall, this would be a decent sessionable light ale, were it not dragged down by too much bland yeast flavour. I had the same problem with Stewart’s Hollyrood, and I really think they need to sort it out.

DuffMan (10436) - the land of bitumen, beef & beer, Alberta, CANADA - NOV 9, 2013
Bottle, shared with Rockley. Medium gold, average white head. A solid golden ale with light fruity hops, biscuity malts, low bitterness.

allmyvinyl (10629) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - SEP 15, 2013
Cask at Guildford Arms. Pours clear gold with a good white head. Light biscuit malt aromas, some toffee and citrus. Good balance of sweet and bitter on the taste, more biscuit coming through. Gentle carbonation, good mouthfeel. Nice, solid beer.

batneil (719) - - SEP 13, 2013
Pale golden colour as advertised, but the taste was rather disappointing. There was a vaguely fruity taste, but otherwise it was more like dish water.

SaintMatty (7365) - Uppsala, SWEDEN - JUL 19, 2013
Cask at the brewery - Golden in colour. Earthy aroma with hints of dried fruit. Slightly metallic taste with notes of grain, lemon and dried apricot. Not bad, but a bit ordinary.

reebtogi (6277) - Edmonton, Alberta, CANADA - MAY 31, 2013
500ml bottle pours a golden orange color with a 2 finger white head that settles slowly to reveal a few spots of lacing. Aroma is light fruits and grass. Taste is a spicy grass hop bitterness with a big malty sweetness. Light to medium body with moderate carbonation. A nicely done lighter brew which is easy on the palate and makes a good session ale.

jfb (6270) - GERMANY - MAY 22, 2013

mzaar (3463) - Varberg, SWEDEN - APR 22, 2013
Flaska. Bärnstensfärgad, lätt dimmig, med ett generöst skum. Citrus, örter och gräs i aromen. Söt citrus-smak, tillsammans med smörkex och gräs. Rätt enahanda smaker i längden.
