2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Bottle courtesy of Nick. shared at Nick and Anna’s, Quidish, South Harris, Monday 15th June 2015 Pours reddy/brown with an off-white head. Malty and fruity but rather indistinct beer, in fact a rather boring effort from a producer who I thought usually did much better. Nothing wrong with it but at the same time very little right with it. A6 A3 T6 P3 Ov11 2.9

3.5 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
500ml bottle pours a clear reddy brown with foamy off white head that soon fades to cap. Nose is really nutty, chestnuts, hazelnuts, roasted barley and some treacle toffee. Very malty taste with a bit of oakiness and the nuttiness is still there. Nice bitter finish but again its a nutty bitterness. Nice.

Light brown colour. Floral, fruity and malty. The depth of flavour and bitter versus sweet balance are excellent. Great session bitter.
