Very aromatic, has sweet red fruits and floral hop. Texture is really creamy. Lots of maltiness comes through and also some fresh hop in the finish.

Benjii (3049) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - MAR 1, 2012
On cask at The 3 Judges. Pours a golden brown colour with a decent beige head. Aroma of yeast, caramel and alcohol. Similar flavours with mild carbonation and an oily mouth-feel. Quite malty overall although a little thin.

tombyars (1332) - Saltcoats, SCOTLAND - OCT 5, 2011
Tasted this in The Esquire House, Glasgow (JDW) in September 2008. Cask, handpump dispense. Opaque amber in colour with a creamy white head. Floral hops in the short aroma. Good resiny mouthfeel and decent lacing. Pale malts give a warm bread dough flavour with marmalade fruit notes. Bitter hop resins present in a long aftertaste and this continues into the dry woody finish. An ok session bitter.
