3.5/5  rDev -9.8%
look: 3.5 | smell: 3 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 4

On cask at the Bridge House, Belfast

Pours with a pale amber body, thick dense white head with solid retention. Some patchy lacing

Smell, fresh slightly citric hops, a touch of biscuit and caramel. Some fresh flowers and honey

Taste, solid malt profile, caramel and toffee. A little touch of hop bitterness and flavour on the finish

A drinkable ale however a little dull

4.45/5  rDev +14.7%
look: 3.5 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4.5

On cask at the Guildford Arms in Edinburgh.

A: Pours a dark amber orange color. A one finger white and bubbly head forms, and recedes to a ring pretty fast. Light lace is left behind.
S: The aroma is great. Citrus and floral hops. A big honey like sweetness in the nose. Bread/biscuit and toffee malt. Excellent.
T: The honey like sweetness dominates up front, but it never becomes cloying. Toffee, bread, and biscuit malt again. A nice fruity flavor of apples and grapes as well.
M/D: A medium to full body. Good carbonation. This is increadibly creamy and smooth. Like silk. Not a session beer, but I can drink this all day.

I really like this. Another great beer from Caledonian. There is a big sweetness, but it is never cloying or overbarring. A great summer beer.

Half pint served by handpump in the Greyfriars Bar in St Andrews

A- Golden copper body with excellent clarity and 1 finger head that fades to a faint crown slowly and does produce good lacing.

S- Bready malts, a faint honey sweetness, a whisky like undertone, maybe some pear.

T- Citrus hops come alive in the beginning changing to an overtly sweet honey like finish. Hop bite does linger on in the aftertaste. There is a whisky like, plummy? undertone that i cant quite put my finger on in the middle.

M- A bit too full bodied and sticky for a billing of "summer ale". Low carbonation.

D- Aroma is excellent when fresh from the cask but perhaps a bit too sticky sweet on the tongue in taste and body. Albeit a nicely complex and drinkable brew.
