Craft. Opaque black beer, little tan head. Smooth palate, semi soft and semi dry. Very light and smooth dark malts with a touch of roast on the finish. The hops are light and piney but then reveal some nice fruits, orange and other things subtly tropical. Mild lacto. Smooth finish, semi dry with mild bitterness from the hops and the roast malt.

BeerCast_Rich (1906) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - MAY 7, 2012
[cask at the Bow Bar, Edinburgh][sampled alongside Davaar Blonde] Brownish black pour with a large slightly off-white head. Fruity citrus aroma – lemon bitterness, mixed with roasted chocolate malt. Flavours are lovely – the sharp citrus combines with the toasty malt to give a caramel fruitiness to the beer. Great stuff, I preferred this to the Blonde [27042012]
