3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
holy smokes, opened a 440ml can and almost exlosion of froth, but managed to get to glass and salvage most of it. Poured forth into glass almost as complete foam extremely violent mixture in glass, I thought a wicked chemistry reaction occuring. But it settled down to give a gorgeous looking dark clear amber color with a nice thick amber/white foam head. Body is very unlively though 10 min after pouring. I get honey, caramel, toffee, slight bitter. Very smooth creamy texture with a long butterscotch like after taste. Overall this was an experience, perhaps can was dropped several times before reaching me, but overall certainly unique in my beer experience tastings so far!

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Pours a tantalizing golden copper, with s massive milky head that laces up from the bottom of the glass. Aroma has notes of fruit, spices, and light malts, quite muted actually. Tasting notes include ripe fruit, soft creamy palate, and a watery finish. A little disappointing actually, very drinkable though.

2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 4/20
Couleur Caramel avec une petite vague de ’hops’ dans le nez. Saveur de Pain et caramel avec une pointe terreuse. Simple et un peu fade. Finition assez nul. Pas mauvaise, mais sans plus...

Good quality ale widely available throughout Edinburgh and surprising body given the low abv. Atoms mostly grain.

2.4 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 12/20
Draught, Curry House, Dunbar. Caramel and vague hop in the nose. Bread and toffee in the flavour with a hint of metal. Smooth, watery and bland. Not much in the finish. Won’t win any taste awards, but there are worse beers, (just about) and to help a curry down it’ll do.

Clear caramel brown with thick white head. Slight toffee aroma. Smooth creamy palate. Flavour has slight toffee sweetness, a balancing rather nondescript tartness, and no noticeable bitterness. Drinkable.

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Rating from 2008: Toller, supercremiger Schaum. Der Antrunk ist vollmundig, süßlich und sehr süffig. Der Hauptteil ist cremig, leicht malzig, aber etwas laff. Der Nachgeschmack ist lang, leicht herb und schön cremig, angenehm-süßlich!
→ Ein sehr tolles schottisches Bitter! --> 13+13+12+13 = 12,73

2.5 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
471ml can into an English pint. Pours a clear amber with a thick, lasting, creamy head and good lacing and lots of cascading in the pour. Too bad it didn’t taste as good as it looked. Light caramel aroma. Light grassy flavour with only mild bitterness. Not a whole lot going on.

2.8 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Keg tap at the Castle Tavern, Inverness, 18/10/13.
Ok - just the one shit tick for the day having exhausted the cask winners ...
Clear golden with a good sized off white head.
Nose is pale malts, sugars, light caramel, hint of fruit.
Taste comprises light malts, grassy, fruit notes.
Medium bodied, fine carbonation, smooth on the palate, grassy bitter notes in the finish.
Mediocre affair but as keg stuff goes not that bad tbh - it certainly beat a few of the cask/bottle conditioned offerings I had across this weekend!
