Stronger, much darker, and maltier than their IPA, with less drastic and interesting hoppiny but more malt character and flavor. Still has a decent hop finish, though very little bitterness.

From cask in Edinburgh. Amber colored, brief yellowish head. Caramelly malts and faint fruits on the nose. Taste is mild malty, medium sweet, whit restrained fruit tones, and a modest amount of bittering hops. Mellow in the mouth, a bit diluted. Dries up on the finish. Ok beer, a bit boring though.
