tombyars (1352) - Saltcoats, SCOTLAND - DEC 19, 2011
First tasted this at the Bull Inn, Paisley in August 1994. Cask, handpump dispense. Clear copper red in colour with a thick white head. Strong aroma of soft toffee notes. Thin but creamy mouthfeel and good lacing. Pale malts give a robust digestive biscuit malt with a strong sweet flavour of Highland toffee full in the mouth. Slight prickle of dusty hops short in the aftertaste gives a slight earthy wet leaves note. Finish is sweet and malty with a hint of dry currants present in the mouth. An enjoyable session bitter

Low-impact simple bitter. Standard copper color with a modest white head that quickly dissipates. The nose is light, a little floral with some biscuity malts present too. The taste is lightly sweet, with a watery, simple finish. Refreshing enough.
