500ml bottle from Dobbies Garden Centre - Deep mahogany body, thin white head which soon goes. Nose is rich sweet caramel, with a sweet maltiness that carries through to the taste. Bit thin on the mouthfeel, with a rather short ending.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottled, 500ml from House of Trembling Madness Bottle Shop, York. Dark brown with off white head. Quite a sweet, malty beer, fairly typical of the low hopped Sottish Ales, there is an earthy note, a touch of acid peat perhaps with a fruity bramble touch. Overall a reasonable and solid beer.

2.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Very dark red beer with a strong, malty aroma and a head that dissipates quite quickly. Fruit and malt flavour that seems slightly watery and doesn’t have much by way of aftertaste.

3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Pours dark amber with a nice red glint. There’s a decent head to start with but it fades quite quickly.The nose has toffee apples and malt. The taste has caramel and biscuits and then the Apple note kicks in at the end. The palate has a light to medium body with a creamy texture and a.fairly clean finish.

2.6 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
This was sucked out of a bottle at Glen Nevis Campsite nr Fort William, so I didn’t have a chance to check out the aroma, colour, etc! It tasted ok, seemed a good (ish) 80/- character, certainly better than the Colonsay Lager I tried a while back! Bought from the shop on the campsite.
