Bottled. Deep amber coloured body, with a smooth, lacy white head, steadily fading. Vanilla and sweet malt aroma. Mature malt flavour with decent bitterness providing the required balance for the malts. Easy drinking.

Bottle, some carbonation when poured, a deep brown colour with a large fuffy beige head. Strong malty aroma with some hint of chocolate. Very rich on palate and caramal malt flavours. Agree with a lot of comments that it is too thin and has a little acidity. Still enkoyed the initial flavours, shame about the finish.

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Brought back for me by a friend (who lived a while in Scotland) and rated May 2009. Pours a clean orange-brown colour with a foamy beige head that is short lived. Lacing is pretty good and big bubbles are stuck all around the glass. The nose is on the malty side, with some light roasted malt, some caramel, mild fruit and a little wine. The mouthfeel is like it came out of a cask (as this beer is available in a cask). The taste is pretty smooth with the same found in the aromas, with caramel and notes of roasted malt. The aftertaste is a little nutty too. Quite a refreshing bitter that is not too punchy, but well-balanced.

[500ml bottle, Appellation Wines, Edinburgh] Pours reddish brown, with a thin white head. Malty aroma with some yeast notes. More malt on the taste, a little stone fruit, caramel and nuts. Reminded me very much of their Stag - a nudge up the abv meter, maybe a little more malt on the palate, but that’s about it

2.7 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 11/20
UPDATED: APR 15, 2014 Bottle from Tesco, Wokingham. Poured a bright amber, with a thin, tight white head and some lacing. Malty aroma, with sweet brown sugar and damsons. Similar sweet, malt heavy flavours; toffee and brown bread. Very little hop character. Finish was grain, hay and the smallest amount of residual grassy hops.

Amber color with a off white head. The taste is a sweet dry sourness with a ugly and rather boring palate.

2.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 10/20
I’d had this when I was in Scotland several years ago and found it far too bitter for my taste; when I heard me friend Justin was headed up there I warned him against it. So what did he do? He bought me back a bottle and forced me to drink it when I was around his place (cheers Jus!). Still, at least I can now rate it. Pours a deep red/brown with a beige soap-sud head. Smell and initial taste is of rich sweet malt. Develops into sweet, sticky treacle and sour plums - at this point I was quite enjoying it. However, it’s the aftertaste that gets you - a cloying sticky mouthfeel with a far-too-bitter earthiness, that lingers unpleasantly for ages. Better than I remember, but not one I’d come back to again.
