Heidbummer (423) - SCOTLAND - MAY 1, 2016
Pint at the Starbank. Pours gold with creamy head. Subtle hops on nose. Some bitterness but smooth. A good alternative to Deuchars. Sessionable easy drinking, not challenging but not meant to be. Decent.

Dunc1981 (39) - - OCT 19, 2015
Quite a fresh-tasting IPA, not too bitter, and enough going on in the palate to be interesting. In a pub which featured mainly standard mainstream fare, such as Stella, Carling or Peroni, this one was a very welcome sight/taste. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

chinchill (4609) - South Carolina, USA - MAY 1, 2015
A "Premium pale ale" from a cask pour at the West End pub in Pitterween, Fife. Slightly hazy with an average cask pale ale head. Medium light body with light carbonation. Nearly as hoppy as a APA. Not earthy.

Weefannybaws (130) - Barrhead, SCOTLAND - FEB 21, 2015
Pint in the Bull Inn, Paisley. Light golden ale with slight head. Hints of citrus on the nose. Not much in the way of flavour. Bland. May go well with crisps or nuts.

BlackHaddock (6773) - Shropshire, ENGLAND - NOV 2, 2014
Cask pint in The Guildford Arms, Edinburgh on 25th Oct 2014. Is this the new Deuchars? Seems to be all over Edinburgh, just like Deuchars used to be. Clear golden body with a good, well formed white head. The nose was toasted/roasted biscuity malts with some lemon and grapefruit esters. The taste was more bitter than the nose suggested, still a malt presence but the citrus notes from the aroma seemed to take over somewhat. Nicely put together and although a little too citrusy for me it went down well.
