Theydon_Bois (12731) - Tourist Town (West), Berkshire, ENGLAND - OCT 31, 2013
Cask at Hootananny, Inverness, 18/10/13. Hazed reddish amber with a good sized beige head, good lacing ensues. Nose is sweetish, biscuit malt, light hop bill, mineral notes, citrus, hint of grapefruit. Taste comprises caramel, biscuit malt, light spic, good hop presence. Medium bodied, soft carbonation, smooth on the palate, light hop bitterness in the finish. Nice malty hoppy amber affair.

BenH (3023) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - OCT 9, 2011
Cask at nobles. Pours deep red with beige head. Boring and inoffensive. A decent enough bitter, malty, slight hops, bit watery.

Cask at Nobles. Pours browny red. Smells good enough. Tastes malty. Grassy finish. An only slightly above average cask ale.

UPDATED: MAR 28, 2012 On cask at Jocktoberfest at the Black Isle Brewery. Pours a dark red colour with a thin beige head. Aroma of yeast and caramel. Similar flavours with some grassy hop notes. Quite yeasty overall with a long caramel linger. Mouth-feel is a little oily. (5463 13). Unfined cask at The Stockbridge Tap. Pours a cloudy red colour with a decent white head. Aroma of barley sugar, strawberry and caramel. Similar flavours with lingering caramel and strawberries again. Nice and dry with mild carbonation. I much prefer this version. Also had this with nitrogen as Black Isle Better at Nobles for the Black Isle Total Tap Takeover. The nitrogen gave it a thick, creamy beige head and the linger was nice and malty.

Svesse (6916) - Hässelby, SWEDEN - AUG 14, 2011
(Cask at White Horse, Parson’s Green, London, 20 July 2011) Reddish amber colour with creamy, beige head. Fruity, malty nose with notes of red fruit, orange peel and hints of caramel. Malty, fruity taste with orange peel, caramel, red fruit and a mild spicy bitterness in the finish. Medium body, fairly sweet. Quite nice.

Tap @ Caley Sample Room. Pours an amber-red with a nice head. The nose is intriguing with notes of barra-brith and then hazelnuts. The taste has more of the nuts and a sweet maltiness with some gentle herby hops on the end. The palate is medium in structure, with a good creamy texture and a refreshing finish.
