3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
On cask at Cloisters. Pours a golden colour with a barley wine style aroma of caramel, candy sugar, pine and alcohol. Similar flavours with alcohol fairly present . Mild carbonation and an oily mouth-feel. Definitely made me think of a barley wine more than a stout.

Cask by handpump at Glenpark Hotel, Ayr - fruity / citrus hop aroma, slightly hazy deep golden ale, but it cleared as it warmed up (served just a little bit cold), medium off-white head, sweet, citrus and smooth, slightly dry finish, this is a lovely drink and is very easy to drink, which does not reflect it’s alcohol content
