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.

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.
