UPDATED: FEB 9, 2006 Creamy, booring, but good brewed. The foam is good and stays for long time. BUt nothing special on it, a little creamy, but not exactly one of those creamy beers. Yellow, not gold, but pale.

Blackfriers. This bar is a new found home to me of recent times. Aroma is malty with the hops balancing well, and creating some fruity notes. Taste is very similar with the fruit giving it a great smoothness and very well balanced taste. One of the best cask scotish beers iv had for a while.

Had this in the Abbotsford Bar, Rose st, Edinburgh, where it’s called Atlas Abbotsford Ale. A darkish ale with a nice mixture of malt and fruit on the palate. Good pint.

Cask gravity Kent beer festival. Mahogany colour with fruity malt nose of red/dark fruits. Caramel fruits in mouth but then the sharp hop finish throws this beer out of balance. Could be good, but the hop and malt need better intergratio n

Cask at Nevisport Bar, Fort William. Dark red. Malty, fruity aroma (sour red fruits), hints of chocolate, grapefruit. Good mouthfeel (medium-firm for the abv). Finishes with promised hop and a bit of sour fruit. Excellent stuff. Sampled the following day in Kinlochleven at the Tailrace Inn - slightly mellower sample, grapefruit and sour red berry thing not as evident, still excellent.
