3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
2010-07-15. Dark amber brown body with a nice creamy beige head and light lace. Flavour is lightly bitter over a maltier base, dusty toasty malt, mild citrus touches. 6+ Mild aroma, light hops over dusty dry malt. 6+ Average bodied palate. Tastes a bit like an English bitter blended with a mild or brown ale. Enjoyable but milder than expected. Bottle from The Grog Shop, Oxford

Overheard: "In Scotland it would be a heavy, in England it would be a bitter."
Regarding Nessie: "We wouldn’t destroy the myth... It brings in too much money."

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
50cl bottle, label as shown.
Pours a clear hazelnut brown with a medium-sized light beige head. Good retention, decent lacing.
Aroma of ripe plums, toffee and bready malt.
Medium-bodied bitter with a solid, smooth mouth feel. Very moderate carbonation. Velvety and comforting. :=)
Characterful flavour of caramel, roasted malt and some barnyard notes. Bitterness increases towards the finish. Moderately bitter, lingering after taste.
A smooth and satisfying bitter, more complex and rewarding than many. Down the hatch - next one, please!
