Cask in Ryrie’s, Edinburgh. Not the best example I’ve had - will re-rate when on better form. Cloudy. Aroma slightly stale, yeasty. Not the kind of pub which would welcome the return of my half pint on quality grounds. Drank it quickly and got out. Good pub to go to before a rugby match - but order the Deuchars!

Maybe bias as i tasted it in the brewary on a cellar training course where it tasted beautiful. The usual cali hoppiness, and fresh seriously seriously fresh, There is a slight burnt malt in there and some fruit aswell but mainly hops. In my work(wetherspoons - kirky puffer) it doesnt taste as good therefore the rating is not as high as i would, but at the brewary itself, was probably the best pint of cast ale iv ever had. November (caledonian brewary)

beaconstreet (811) - Washington DC, USA - MAY 7, 2005
Not really outstanding. In fact, carmelly, molten shit. But real ale shit all the same. Touches the tounge nicely, good consistency, but the rest is like dung. Henglar’s Circus (JD Wetherspoon’s pub), Glasgow.
