Hand pulled cask in Perth, Scotland. Poured a dark amber color with a light tan head. Good lacing. The nose is sweet caramel malts. Medium body and smooth mouthfeel. The flavor is sweet malts. A very dry and bitter finish rounds out a decent brew.

UPDATED: NOV 22, 2010 Bottle @ Henrik, Bergen. Pours a lovely, deep mahogany-copper body with a dense and long-lasting creamy off-white head. Smell is bread, caramel and toast, with hints of strawberry. Taste is smooth and mild, with caramel malts and kiwi-ish hops blending seamlessly. Some dry hop bitterness in the aroma. A tiny bit watery, but otherwise a very nice Scottish Ale.

cask at City Walls in Stirling - Pours hazy amber with a lingering off-white head. Smells mainly of caramel malt. Light. The flavor is of sweet malt with mild balancing hops. It’s medium bodied and quite drinkable. Nothing special though.

una bitter mediocre alla spina anche se si lascia bere abbastanza bene ma poco persistente sia nell’amaro che nei suoi aromi. all’olfatto quasi inpercettibile.
