Pale in colour with a full fresh citrus aroma, Hollyrood has a light body, moderate bitterness and tangy grapefruit flavours. It goes well with light flavoured foods such as tiger prawns in garlic butter, char-grilled chicken, pan fried sea bass, or burger & chips.
Hops: Magnum and Amarillo Malt: Maris Otter and Wheat

At first seems like a bit of an average APA but didnt like the soapy/skunky astringency in the taste. Also the hops remind me of Sierra Nevada Pale, which isnt my favorite style of APA. Upon comparing the hops they use, looks like they both use magnum, so maybe I just dont like that hop variety?

Nice lingering bitter aftertaste. Medium carbonation, sharp on the tongue. Easy drinking, refreshing, good pale.

ianwelby (1247) - SCOTLAND - MAY 11, 2016
Lively golden beer with a slight haze to it and a white frothy head. Dry, grapefruity aroma. Flavour is nicely balanced. Dry citrus hop but with a touch of lemony sweetness as well. Feels quite rich in the mouth. Its not spectacular but it is very drinkable.
