McNeillR (983) - SCOTLAND - APR 7, 2014
Roasted greasy bacon crisp and bullish US hop nose. Vibrant auburn body, decent swirl of a contrasting white head. Straight itchy berry branch bitterness, initial taste, clean and almost cornflaked maltiness. Creamy sweet finish, real squeaky gleam to the mouthfeel too that drags things away from being as refreshing as I recall (at least from cask). Still solid, especially as an "Amber".

Keg, Hanging Bat, Edinburgh

Bottle 500ml (AbM)
Dark amber-copper color, good creamy beige head, good lacing. Caramalt and fruity hoppyness in the nose. Medium-bodied. Front has some caramelt, then nice piney hoppyness with hints of citrus. Decent backing malts. Ok beer for this style and certainly very little British in this one.

500ml bottle - thanks jeevan! Pours dark red-brown, thin off-white head. Big fruit and hop aromas, lots of pine and red berries. Taste has a big piney bitterness too. Clean finish. Little thin for the strength, but good.
