Pint at the Old Manor in Bracknell. Creamy head on a dark amber beer. Tastes bitter with some sweetness, hints of citrus and a bit of biscuit. Aroma is light, floral and gently hopped. A fairly pleasant beer, but a bit watery. Balanced bitter aftertaste.

On cask at Bennets. Pours a golden brown colour with a thick white head. Aroma of alcohol, caramel and barley. Alcohol is fairly present with an upfront yeast character. Caramel, yeast and chocolate flavours also. A little thin with moderate carbonation and CO2 prickle. A lingering chocolate milk flavour.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
First tasted this in Coanes, Johnstone in April 1986. Cask, handpump dispense. Clear amber in colour with a thick creamy head. Typical caley aroma of chewy toffee biscuit notes. Pale malt gives a creamy buttery shortbread biscuit base with chewy toffee, butterscotch flavours. No hint of fruit in this. Slight dusty hop notes in the brief aftertaste but sweet malt dominates. Finish is sweet and biscuity with toffee notes at the end.
A great Scottish session ale and well recommended.

En ganska vanlig referens när det gäller öl är smörkola. Vill man veta hur denna smak är skall man köpa denna öl. Även en viss maltighet.

Draught at Cairnbann Hotel. Pours a toffee brown with a good head. The nose has caramel and malt. The taste is of toffee and malt. The palate is medium in structure, there’s a big creamy texture and it is reasonably clean on the end. Overall, this is better than in the bottle, for definite.

Can find it everywhere in Edinburgh - harder in Glasgow - but for a common ale it’s nae bad.
