BeerCast_Rich (1847) - 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]

UPDATED: MAY 9, 2012 I can’t believe my previous rating - must have been in an incredibly negative mood or mis-typed. Anyway, this time, lovely chocolate biscuit note on the nose, which is almost as pronounced on the taste. Palate medium to rich for such a session strength beer and a clean finish. Overall, lovely bitter. Previous rating 14/03/12 7+3+5+2+7=2.4 50cl Bottle. It pours an amber ale with nice lace and good head retention. The nose is floral and sweet (perhaps honey), eventually giving way to gentle malt. The taste is of more honey and malt and with astringent bitterness on the finish. The palate is typical for a medium-bodied session ale but balanced all the same. Overall, this is a step up from the wishy-washy session ales of yester-year, but I really do prefer their other beers.

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.
