GBBF. Cask. Hazy brown beer, residual white head. Light dry palate. Fairly rich malt with a tiny bit of toffee. Trace of minerals and some very subtle red fruits. A dry and slightly warming finish. Not bad but it lacks something...

harrisoni (17284) - Ashford, Kent, ENGLAND - AUG 3, 2011
Cask gravity at Gbbf 2011. I mean I love Oregon. I love the people the beers the wine the countryside. I will try to bear all of this in mind befre I drink a style that celebrates some kind of mythical Scots drink. Cloudy hazy mid brown with thin ring of bubbles. Its a very hoppy peppery esb. Yes some toffee yes some alcohol body but its an esb. Its a very decent fruity malty beer with good hop on end. Touch alcohol syrup but fine nonetheless

The MacStallion I had was not a 90/- but a 5% regular ol’ Scottish. So this brew may very well a different interpretation of the theme each time out, or I had a new brew. Light brown colour, hazy. Fruity, sugary nose. Firm malty character, toasty but maybe not so chewy nor flavourful.
