Copper amber with a lacy thin white lasting head. Deep smell of caramel malt, plum, figs and light toasted malt. Defiantly smells better than the taste. Medium thin body. Tastes of malt and dried fruit. Slight stale skunky elements, lager cardboard bitterness. Almond and citrus finish. Not really special or good. Disbalanced

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Pours a lovely thick white head with a pale amber body. Aroma is grainy and caramel, tangy caramel like taste, almost tangy with a milky back taste on a hearty drink, quite sweet on the tounge, quite a thick and sticky mouth feel. Quite a nice beer, pretty easy to drink and pretty enjoyable... also an interesting story to go with it (Commemoration of the historical Flying Scotsman train service from Scotland to London).
