some friends brought this over from scotland for me. poured deep brown with a tan-mushroom head. malty wet nose with roasted nut essence. mouth continues the same malted toffee flavors not particulary sweet but non impressive on the palate. needs more substance and less water.

Good lookin’ beer, good tight white head, leaves a nice lace down the glass. Soft sweet malty nose with a hint of hops..nice! Quite thin on the palate, initially good malt but that fades very quickly and leaves little in the way of a finish.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Pours a dark amber colour with quite a lot of off-white head. A biscuity aroma, quite sweet and a similar taste. Very malty with hints of fruit, but also with a slight hop bitterness on the finnish. Quite nice.

Bottle bought at Kensington Wine Market here in Calgary. Dark in colour and balanced towards malt and not very hoppy for a bitter. Page 457 of Michael Jackson’s Great Beer Guide and only 237 of his 500 Classic Brews to go.

This beer really was the first that made me stand up and look at Caringorm Brewery, it really is one my favourite Scottish ales even though it isn’t as always easily sourced as some of their other brews. It pours a generous fluffy head with a pale ruby red/brown body. Nice smooth malt and oat aroma. Creamy taste, pretty smooth with bitter malty highlights... overall oat flavour prominent, a hearty sip gives a nice oak aftertaste! This is a great beer, quite moreish and so bloody drinkable!
