COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Cask; Regular. Previously 6.2%.
A classic Scottish Strong Ale. Named after the soldiers of the Highland and Lowland Scottish regiments, this ale has a full-bodied flavour of malt on an excellent background of hop bitterness. A drink to savour.

Pint at the Auld Brig, Irvine, Very dark with small, thin off white head. Tastes of all things dark, cherries and plums soaked in alcohol. Dark boiled fruit sweets, Christmas cake. Treacle toffee. Quite strong alcohol taste. Very nice in moderation.

Erzengel (2610) - Wuppertal, GERMANY - SEP 1, 2014
Very smooth and intense. Slightly sourish, easy to drink and slightly sweetish. Fresh, very fruity (plums, cherries), malty. Great. The aftertaste is smooth, intense fruity, slightly bitter. Great!

Last had this Tennents Byres Road over a year ago. Always had a rather unpleasant sour aftertaste much as Old Peculiar has now. This one in Henglers Circus much smoother. Malt still dominates with now a pleasing spice aftertaste. Good stuff especially for under £2.00 (CAMRA voucher). Dangerously quaffable.

(draught) pours a hazy amber-ruby colour with a frothy beige head. aroma of straw, apricots and vanilla, with a hint of coconut and pale malts. flavour is mostly caramel and pale malts, with notes of green apple, some popcorn and yeast. medium-bodied with average carbonation.

AshtonMcCobb (2575) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - MAR 6, 2014
On cask at Alexander Graham Bell. Appearance - dark honey heading into red. Nice head. Nose - not a lot. Some gentle malt. Then toffee finally breaks through. Taste - quite luscious toffee. Then slight malt astringency. Palate - medium bodied with a creamy texture and a fairly fresh finish considering the style. Overall - good but not as good as expected.

Poured deep brown with a dense off white head. Aroma of sweet, dark fruit and heavy malt, treacle sweetness. Medium to full body, flavour as the aroma, slightly cloying

Cask at The White Lady. Golden amber pour with a thick white head & lacing. Fruit hop and caramel aromas. Similar taste. Solid beer, nicely done.

On cask at Sir John Stirling Maxwell, Glasgow - A golden-amber ale with a thin white head. Aromas of raisons, dried fruit, caramel, some sweetness. Tastes quite fruity overall with some stewed fruits and well masked alcohol. Also flavours of toffee and Christmas cake. Nice chewy mouthfeel.

AllyG (3) - SCOTLAND - APR 8, 2013 does not count
Too sweet and malty for me. Boring to in all respects. Altogether an unremarkable beer with a silly name and patronising label.
