2.4 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
On cask at The Heriot-Watt Beer Festival. Strangely pours a golden - amber colour. A yeasty aroma with caramel and apple seed characters. Similar flavours and just a little dry to finish. Mild carbonation. Unexciting.

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Cask conditoined @ South Western Arms, Soton. Chocolatey malts and liquorice flavours. Earthy hops complement the light roastiness, creamy feel but not too sweet. I think I would have enjoyed this a lot more without the smooth thick body, which some people probably like.

Cask. Red, normal head. Woody, slightly burnt flavour. Spicey, peppery flavour. Nice bitterness in the finish. Truely a great brew.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Cask at GBBF 2010. Good amber brown colour with a good white head.
Plenty of fruit in the aroma, with a hint of orange. Malts dominate the initial taste and again the citrus and orange combination work well in the aftertaste. A very nice beer, ideal summer drink for a person that prefers a darker beer.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
First tasted this at the Paisley Beer Festival in April 2000. Cask, handpump. Clear ruby red in colour with a thin buff head. Slight hint of roast malt in the short aroma. Thin oily mouthfeel and poor lacing. Dark malts give a maltloaf base with moist sultanas and wood smoke. Prickle of hop resins in the short aftertaste. Dry oak cask and nutty flavours come through in the rounded finish. An ok session ale.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Cask, Alloa Beer Festival 07. Mid-chestnut with a thin off-white head. Nose is lively malt / hop balance with some medicine. Mouth is lively fruity, grassy hop and some maltiness to balance. Smooth, some fruity bitterness towards the back of the throat. Can’t help but thinking it’s a bit artificial.

After the disappointing encounter with the bottled version, I wasn’t looking forward to trying this, I wish I hadn’t...pretty much the same as the bottle, overly harsh bitter flavours spoil everything AGAIN! Guest beer @ Standing Order Edinburgh
