3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Nutty brown in colour with a dense head of off-white foam. Aromas are sweet and light with some floral hops. Flavours are drier and hoppier than I expected. The finish is especially dry - and quite pleasant. Malts present are roasted with not much sweetness as the aroma implies. Verging on the dry stout and not bad at all.

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Hazy dark amber color, thin head. Very nice hop aroma, dry hopping (Fuggles?), and some caramel. Quite ordinary maltiness and caramel, and body structure, but again a very pleasant hop note. The hop is mixed with a strong caramel note in the final. A good bottled Bitter.

Dark amber, nice offwhite head. Aroma is floral. Flavor is spicy and alittle aggressive. Some fruits in it, but too much spice for me.

1.8 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
Considerable phenols within a hop bitterness breeze...Fizzy connotations abound, even tomatoes confound...This is a scottish ale rotting away on its deathbed...
