AshtonMcCobb (5151) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - JUL 13, 2013
On cask @ the Royal Dunkeld Hotel. Pours a dark amber into chestnut colour. The nose has toffee and malt mostly - maybe a hint of apple. The taste is more toffee malt and quite caramel on the end. The palate is medium bodied and textured and well balanced. Overall, a good ale.

Dark amber light brown in colour with a flavour of roasted malts and burnt carmel giving a real sweet bitterness in the taste red fruits coming through along with a drying bitterness

jd543 (428) - SCOTLAND - MAY 11, 2013
Looks amazing. Ruby red colour, foamy white head. Thatís as far as it goes. Aroma is a soapy, maybe some hops, not a whole lot going on. Flavour is sweet, very malty, cereals, cornflakes, dark fruit, a bit salty, not amazing. Texture is creamy.

mighty_meadow (308) - Kilwinning, SCOTLAND - FEB 2, 2013
Nice sweet toffee taste. Very smooth, creamy. Some fruit and slight spice finish. Could have a few of these.

FatPhil (13584) - Tallinn, ESTONIA - JAN 29, 2013
Cask (Tivoli (JDW), Cambridge)
Slightly creamy aroma, muted by sparkler. Bready taste. Smooth palate, carbonation low. Does have a touch of diacetyl, but only at a level where I donít find it a problem at all. Real glider - this was breakfast, the day after a beer festival day, and I didnít have to fight this at all.
