mighty_meadow (212) - Kilwinning, SCOTLAND - AUG 11, 2014
On tap at the Auld Brig in Irvine ( JDW ) bit thin but tasty. Burnt toffee. Puff candy. Oily on palate. Not bad for a quick post work pint.

Scopey (7058) - Croydon, Greater London, ENGLAND - JUL 28, 2014
Cask at the halfway house, Edinburgh. It pours clear mahogany brown with a decent off-white head. The nose is earthy, brown bread, dirt, twig and dried fruit. The taste is toasty, brown bread, earth, light caramel and leather with a dry finish. Light-medium body and soft carbonation. Could be done with a touch more body. Ok bitter.

AshtonMcCobb (2679) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - MAY 3, 2014
On cask at Au Bar. Appearance - dark brown with red chinks. Nice head. Nose - toffee and biscuit but you have to search. Taste - the toffee is there but astringent malt takes over. Palate - medium bodied with a creamy texture and a dry and slightly astringent finish. Overall - solid but hard going at times.

Imaena (1855) - Atlanta, Georgia, USA - NOV 8, 2013
Draught. This is a pretty boring bitter without much going for it. I would go for a different tap.

dwaff (3) - BURTON ON TRENT, Staffordshire, ENGLAND - APR 11, 2012 does not count
On Handpull @ Coopers Tavern B-O-T. A dark copper coloured ale with a creamy head. Not a great amount of aroma. Full malty palate with lots of subtle roast characters. Trad Scottish Ale, quaffable but not memorable.

On cask at the Guildford Arms. Pours a brown colour with a thick white head. A malty aroma of Weetabix, caramel, chocolate and yeast. Similar flavours with moderate carbonation and an oily mouth-feel.
