(Cask at Gallows Bird, 20120909) The beer poured amber and clear. Its head was small and white. Aroma had toffee and malts. Palate was medium bodied with low carbonation. Flavours were toffee, caramell, malts, hops and bitterness. Aftertaste was malty and bitter. A nice a bit more tastier bitter.

BeerCast_Rich (1840) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - MAY 29, 2012
[500ml bottle, Appellation Wines, Edinburgh] Slightly hazy copperish amber beer, cream-coloured head. Sweet chocolate nose from the dark crystal malt, touch of roasted wood. Flavourwise, it reminded me of a crumble that has been left in the oven a bit too long – slightly scorched brown sugar, rich fruit, and spices. Caramel sweetness in there too. A very nice beer [28052012]

500 ml bottle from Glenpark Hotel - pours clear medium brown, complex flavour with a hint of spices, but not too strong. Somewhat bitter aftertaste. A pleasant enough drink, if not my favourite. Little difference between the bottled and cask version of this beer.

tombyars (1316) - Saltcoats, SCOTLAND - OCT 1, 2011
Tasted this in the Last Post, Paisley (JDW) in March 2010. Cask, handpump dispense. Crystal clear tawny in colour with a thin white head. Slight malty note in the short aroma. Creamy mouthfeel and good lacing. Robust pale malt base gives a maltloaf flavour which has fruit notes of redcurrant and sweet red grapes. Tart metallic bitterness is present in the aftertaste. Bitter sweet finish with a dry edge of marmalade to it. A good example of a Scottish 80/ and a fine session ale.

Benjii (3049) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - AUG 6, 2011
On cask at the Cask and Barrel (Southside). A dark golden ale with a lovely thick beige head. Aroma of coffee, Weetabix and caramel. Flavours of caramel, yeast and some spicy - peppery hops. A little dry to finish. Not bad.
