50 cl bottle @ home, BBE 15.04.2014
Aroma is unusual for a bitter. It has malty feeling, resiny tones and some apricot – feels actually like a Belgian blonde. Perhaps also hints of cardboard in the background. Flavour has some apricot, some berries, distant resiny tones and some cardboard. Finishes with distant grassy tones. Not very English and not very bitter.

3.5 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 14/20
"Gently roasted barley malt gives a deep ruby colour and delicate toasted flavour. This Scottish style 80/- ale has a light fruitiness with a crisp aftertaste".
Mild toasted aroma, dark brown colour, wet wood & toast taste, very fizzy palate.
