COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Cask; Regular.
NOTE: This is NOT the same beer as the version of Flying Scotsman previously available as a Spring seasonal.
Launched in July 2011, Flying Scotsman is a new addition to our permanent range of beers. A full-flavoured ruby beer, profoundly malty in aroma and flavours but balanced with a raisiny spiciness and toasty dryness. Distinctive fresh, slightly citrus tang with a rich finish.

sudomorph (929) - Barrie, Ontario, CANADA - JUL 5, 2015
3.5% Flying Scotsman Pale Ale real ale at The Crofter Fort William Scotland. Pours a clear dark bronze with a one finger, off white head that leaves rings of lacing. Aroma has great notes of toffee, caramel, slight roast, and a touch of spicy hops. Taste is balanced. Toffee, hint of roast, caramel, bread, and a slightly bitter/sweet ending. Medium body with a low, cask, carbonation. Clean in the mouth with a dry finish. Overall a nice beer. Darker caramel malts with hints of roast.

zimbo (766) - SCOTLAND - MAY 2, 2015
Copper colour with notes of malt. Palate is remarkably thin and structurally it comes across as something akin to cask lambic without the fruit or deliberate intention. Pretty dull. Flying? It has trouble even standing ip.
