Medium light yellow, there is a pleasant yeasty quality to the nose and a soft body. A nice gentile yeastily bready soft zing in the mouth throughout as well.
Not much head or beading.
In general light throughout and a gently trqce of lemon comes and goes and the beer diappears from the glass.
I like it and should probably rate it higher but I remember what it once was and it seems to have lost those IPA qualities.. Just re-insert all that stuffing and we'd be back in action.

500ml bottle into chalice at the Millenium Hotel in Reading, on the recommendation of the bartender kid. Best before 2/28/15!
Poured without much head. Thick chill haze across the deep copper body. Just skim film and no lacing ... Looks heavier than the ABV
Aroma is of a rich, yet dull floral nature - think old flowers in the vase. Very nutty - walnuts, in particular. Somewhat bready, too, toward the end.
MF is dirty and relatively rich... Drinks like a bigger beer. Some earth left on the palate. Flavors are full of roses, and old citrus. Leafy, herbal quality is high.
Overall, this has tons of flavor for a 4.4% beer... English IPAs are not everyone's "cup of tea", but this one is an authentic must-try from Scotland to help understand them.
