rodabod (2) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - NOV 4, 2015 does not count
330ml bottle. A nice Scotch ale, but there are better examples like Traquair. Aroma has a very slight lemon-like freshness to it which may be from late addition hops. Colour is a reddish chestnut brown. Taste has a reasonable amount of malt for the ABV, but I would prefer it to be more viscous as some are. Sweetness is about right and the hoppiness too. Maybe this bottle could benefit from a little ageing. Overall quite enjoyable.

So gut wie keine Krone, aber schön weiß! Riecht nach Malzbier, schmeckt nach Malzbier, mit extrem viel Weizen. Sehr süß und vollmundig, im Mund ölig und Sirup nicht unähnlich. Extrem gut trinkbar, zwischen 7 und 14 Grad verändert es seinen Geschmack und die Süße. Im Abgang Honig und Karamell, vielleicht ein wenig unraffinierter brauner Zucker. Perfekt als Begleiter zu Rauchwaren oder als Digestif. Tolles Bier! ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
