1/2 pint cask, Thompsons, Edinburgh. Medium-sized white creamy head. Marzipan-like sweet nutty aroma with a crisp background, smooth bitterness and a very soft texture. Really nice as it is both stimulating and refreshing while not being offending in any way at all. Very well-made. Gentle maltiness, which only shows through towards the finish. A very nice bitter.
