JohnRMurdoch (4564) - Glasgow, SCOTLAND - MAR 23, 2010
UPDATED: DEC 11, 2015 Cask @ The Toby Jug as Tobys IPA. Mild cereal resin aroma. Pale golden yellow colour with a good head. Dry biscuit cereal & citrus fruit flavour. Bitter aftertaste. A good golden ale. Updated rating for bottle. Orange amber, not much head. Toffee grain malt aroma. Dry caramel malt flavour. Bitter aftertaste. This is very different from the beer I used to really like. It has metamorphosed into an uninspiring bitter.

Cask at Glenrothes BF 08. Orangey chestnut with no head. Nose is hoppy solid, some maltiness, biscuit. Mouth is fruity, brambley, hoppy grass. Lasting fruity hop character. Quite alright actually.

cask blackfriars new years eve- cheers tom for this one!! ! extremely drinkable ipa, very sweet though, hops played second fiddle to the sweet and somewhat extreme malty character of this ale. still, quite good. cider accents in finish.

mountainforest (131) - Mississippi, USA - DEC 15, 2007
On tap at Wetherspoon in New Town Edinburgh (under 2 pounds stirling). This beverage isn;t bad, nor great but better than average. Having been brewed in a 17th century building on the banks of the river Avon does not hurt this ale one bit. Rather a light (in the Scottish sense) summer beer.

Gr0ve (2177) - Oslo, NORWAY - OCT 12, 2006
1/2 pint cask, Abbotsford, Edinburgh. Bright golden colour with a small coarse white head. Glass is full of bubbles, so there seems to be quite a bit of carbonation in the beer. Nose is restrained, but there are some citrusy hops in the background. A more malty crisp hop aroma is more evident after a little while. Very flat, but smooth mouthfeel and a slight oily texture. Beer is served quite warm. Finishes with a light bitterness.
