tombyars (1332) - Saltcoats, SCOTLAND - JAN 5, 2012
First tasted this in Blackfriers, Glasgow in May 1990. Cask, handpump dispense. Clear dark mahogany colour with russet tones around the edges, has a thick creamy white head. Smooth seductive aroma of wood smoke and burnt caramel. Creamy mouthfeel and superb lacing. Complex malts give a juicy fruit loaf flavour with maple syrup, treacle toffee, dates. Spicy resins in the long aftertaste with roast barley notes full in the mouth. Finish is dry with butterscotch and vanilla oak cask coming through. A terrific example of an Old Ale. Highly recommended.

These fellows normally over hop thier beers in a good way and im sure they also dry hop the casks too as sometimes after venting they overfolw and you get some hops coming out. However there was far less hops character cutting through a decnet spicey malt biscuty base to balance it out. I just hope caledonain arnt to blame for this?

Cask Stillage from the cellar of the Crescent, Salford 06/11/2004 Amber coloured hoppy and slightly citrus flavour. Some dryness and bitterness in a malt finish.

DanielBrown (3702) - Birmingham (via Leicester), West Midlands, ENGLAND - JAN 5, 2006
Hand pulled at the Wellington, Birmingham. This seems a little stuck between 2 camps, as it has neither enough hop, nor enough malt. A bit of a let-down from this reliable brewery. OK.

MrWalker (926) - Stockholm, SWEDEN - DEC 4, 2005
Cask @ Akkurat, Stockholm
Amber to red. Caramel to hay aroma. Some toasted bread.A lot of crystal malts. Surprisingly high on bitterness. Unusually low on grapefruit aroma/taste for a Harviestoun brew.

Spiesy (2338) - Sydney, Greater London, AUSTRALIA - JUN 19, 2005
Cask Conditioned, Crosse Keys, London City.
Amber body, slightly cloying to the glass. Fruity forward aroma. Decent enough beer and served in good nic. No complaints but nothing special about it either.
