Tasting Summary

These comments are the opinion of the individual reviewer and represent what they thought of the beer on a particular day in a particular pub. If a review is less favourable, it may be because the beer suffered somewhere in the supply chain between them and the brewery.

RayGood11 May 2013 Regaining some lost form. Fresh and fruity. Still a bit thin and could do with more biting flavour.
RayUndrinkable11 Feb 2011 On (or just past) the turn.
McGargleGood23 Jul 2009 'S funny how beers evolve over time. This was darker and more malty than earlier brews and lacked the citrus/elderflower attack that was its trademark. Still a fine beer though served in good condition.

Royal Dunkeld Hotel, Dunkeld, Perthshire and Kinross

McGargleAcceptable10 Jun 2011 None of the light floral notes you expect from Tradewinds. Tired?
McGargleGood10 Jul 2010 Much better than last night. Appley flavours replaced by elderflower, good light malt mouthfeel and the hops shone through.
McGargleAcceptable09 Jul 2010 This was the first pint cask which had been brought on a little early. Appley hints plus excessive carbonation masked Tradewinds' delicate flavours. Will improve.

The Butchers Arms, Herne, Kent

IanGood20 Dec 2008 Crystal clear gold. I was looking forward to this and expecting the trademark elderflower aroma which wasn't there, it was mostly dominated by a sweaty sox hop aroma. Decent condition, but not quite got that elderflower crispness I associate with this beer.
MickExcellent20 Dec 2008 Golden with a real citrus, fruity zesty taste, a super pint.

AndrewExcellent21 Jul 2007 Turkish delight and mandarine. Rich.
IanExcellent19 Jul 2007 Great aroma, Great in mouth. It is a seriously good beer. Great flavours and condition, but there is something that just doesn't click with my taste buds. I can see it's great, but hey, just doesn't wow me.

AndrewExcellent25 Jun 2006 Yellow gold in colour. Mineralised water flavours with lemon hops and suble grapefruit aroma. Very good session bitter
