sudomorph (994) - Barrie, Ontario, CANADA - JUL 2, 2015
Cask hand pumped. Pours a clear caramel with a half finger, khaki head that coats the glass. Aroma has nice, slightly roasty notes with caramel, bread, slight dark fruits, and fruity, traditional hops. Taste is pleasantly bitter with caramel, slight roast, and a nice bitter fruityness. Medium body with a low-medium cask carbonation. Clean in the mouth with a dry finish. Overall a nice traditional bitter with caramel and a very mild roast.

Cask at The Cairngorm Hotel. Clear ruby body with a thin off-white head. Light lacing. Aroma of toast and charred wood. Flavour of chocolate, toffee, ash, grass and caramel. Medium body with a slick, oily mouthfeel. Well balanced and ashy. I prefer Wildcat.

2014-06-30. Crisp dark amber brown body modest beige head and lace fades a bit. Aroma is fairly malty, sweet caramel malts. Flavour is malty, lightly toasty roast quality to it. lingering bitterness and mineral notes leave the mouth dry. Average to thin bodied palate feels thin for the beer, light carbonation. Cask at Grog and Gruel, Fort William

welshwizard645 (20) - WALES - OCT 5, 2013
Distinctive aroma, but can’t place it maybe liquorice. Coppery in colour inviting. Dry and malty, palate lends itself to a lazy afternoon rather than a session. Pleasant, but already pondering a different beer.
