Helloooo taste? Erm... Looks good enough, aroma is bland nutty. Flavour non existent. Just give me something. Fizzy brown water. Guys either up the malt character or buy some hops. Poor. 500ml bottle, Portree.

500ml bottle, cheers Our Kid! Pours clear amber, no head. Aromas of nuts, caramel, slightly sour apples. Taste is light sour too, some dusty malt, toffee. Light fruit finish. Not bad.

Scopey (9768) - Croydon, Greater London, ENGLAND - APR 30, 2014
Bottle from Tomlinsons. It pours dark amber with minimal head. The nose is toasty, earth, leather, dried fruits and caramel. The taste is caramel, dried fruits, toast, mild tang and dull cocoa with a dryish. Light+ body and low/no carbonation. A bit flat and dull. So-so.

Oakes (13600) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - MAR 11, 2014
Golden brown. Smells rotten and a bit sour. Body at least has a cleaner tartness. Sweet malts have a touch of brown sugar character.

Theydon_Bois (13441) - Tourist Town (West), Berkshire, ENGLAND - NOV 11, 2013
Bottle shared on the train from Wick to Thurso, from Tomlinsons, 20/10/13. Clear copper with a decent off white head. Nose is bready malts, cereal, apple skin, earthy, biscuit, toffee. Taste comprises light vegetal notes, faint toffee, grain, bready malts, cardboard, brown bread. Medium bodied, moderate carbonation, dry finish. The twigometer was rising into amber on this one - not one to head back for !

imdownthepub (11663) - Banbury, Oxfordshire, ENGLAND - OCT 22, 2013
Cask conditioned at The Lock Inn, Fort Augustus, Inverness-shire, Scotland. Amber with white head. A fairly standard bitter, dry with a peachy note, quite malty and slightly earthy. Just what was required after a 22 mile walk.

AshtonMcCobb (4131) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - JUL 13, 2013
In bottle in various places all over sky - the first was at the Claymore Restaurant in Broadford. This is a really well made amber/bitter - plenty of apple and toffee on nose and taste, good texture, nice refreshing finish. Truly a journey for the palate to experience.
