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.

2.5 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Looks amazing. Ruby red colour, foamy white head. That’s 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.

3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
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 don’t find it a problem at all. Real glider - this was breakfast, the day after a beer festival day, and I didn’t have to fight this at all.
