3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
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.
