UPDATED: JUN 28, 2004 Pasteurised bottle (Tomintoul). Great name, shame about the beer. Grassy aroma from the co2. Brief malt flavour before the metallic notes come in and then proceed to slash my mouth to pieces until it tastes like jagged shards of tin covered in blood. Best before date is this month. Obviously at this extreme end of the shelf life this beer has completely packed in. [2.0]
Bottle (Cairngorm) BBE Jan 05. Big loose head. Caramel notes in aroma and flavour. Dark tones. Doesn't rock my boat.

First tried on hols at Loch Ness. Good malty taste but also quite light and refreshing unlike alot of malty ales.
