500ml bottle from Co-Op on the Isle of Arran.
Pours copper red with a bubbly head which calms down to a small, off white layer of froth.
Smells quite earthy, malty and fruity.
Tastes initially quite crisp, green apple with a toffee finish. Gets more complex as it goes down and I’m getting other fruits of the darker kind but a sort of caramel, apple dessert taste is never far away.
I have to be honest, this started off a bit disappointing but by the bottom of the glass I’m desperate for more.

"A bitter-sweet ale, an immediately satisfying after-taste".
Dark brown colour, strong toast but pleasant malt & hop aroma, good roasty & heavy beer taste. Easy drinking for a dark beer.

500ml bottle, a dark gold with s slim light head, faintly sweet hoppy aroma, as for taste a sweet light fruity mild hops and undemanding bitter finish. Fair enough as a mainstream ale.

Never entered a rating on this one? Ok. This is a golden-brown ale, with a malty and slightly nutty character. It’s fairly light-bodied, and is pretty much just a brown bitter. It doesn’t really benefit from pasteurization, whereas I can see there might be a little mushroomy yeast character if I had it on cask.

Ottimo colorito bruno scuro. Profumo poco intenso sul caramello. Corpo molto leggero e poco fruttato. Permane in bocca un buon sapore bilanciato tra il tostato e il caramello. Non impegnativa.
