ianwelby (1525) - SCOTLAND - JUL 22, 2015
Pint at Counting House in Glasgow. Clear amber beer with a thin creamy head. Light hoppy smell. Flavour is light bitter hop with a lemony twist. Unremarkable but fine.

jjsint (3492) - Leicester, Leicestershire, ENGLAND - APR 28, 2015
Keg tap from the Brewery Tap, Castle Douglas. Light brown/amber with a tiny wisplet of white head. Light scent of malt, berries. Taste is standard but enjoyable: a simple bittersweet taste which leads to a surprisingly dry finish. Light body. Not the greatest of beers, but thus would be a welcome alternative to bland Scottish pub bitters.

2.9
thmsboyd (206) - Ayr, SCOTLAND - JAN 14, 2015
Bottle BBE: 14/6/15. Well-chilled. Crystal clear amber body with a quickly-diminishing, creamy white head. Low intensity aroma with some biscuity character and gentle, sprucey hop notes. Very light sweetness and a gentle bitterness - overall a well-balanced taste. Light body, thin texture, low-to-medium carbonation and a short, bitter finish. A pleasant enough, standard drinkable bitter. Rather bland and unexceptional.

Stuu666 (14838) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - DEC 8, 2014
Bottle at home. Pours golden amber, nose is malty, fruity, taste is similar, refreshing.

Bottle. At first this seems like a fairly standard bitter but there is an unusual smoky element that is actually fairly pleseant.

UPDATED: FEB 23, 2014 Bottled ale - just past its best before date, so may impact on quality. Amber coloured. Slightly bitter taste. Drinkable but not memorable.

2.9
olliejobbins (1577) - Dorking, Surrey, ENGLAND - DEC 2, 2013
Pint. Pours slightly hazy amber. Very weak aroma of cereal and malts. Taste is a little too watery but it is nice. Hops, caramel and a bitter finish
