Cask at Bow Bar. Pale orangey amber, thin creamy white head. Rich fruitcake nose - marzipan, apricot, golden syrup, slightest hint of grassy, maybe mango hops. Sticky sweet, honey, hint of almond, slightly resinous hops, warming alcohol hum in a sweet but grassy finish. Very sweet, but very nice. A dessert wine of a beer.

Cask at The Scottish Real Ale Festival 2014. Pours clear orange amber, no head. Aromas of jam and marmalade, really jammy! Light spice there too. Taste is more of the same, light booze note. Slightly sticky, but I’ll put that down to the gravity pour, might be a bit zingier from hand-pump or bottle (please bottle this Highland!)

Cask at North Bar, Leeds. Pour an orange-gold, finger of head that lasts. Aroma is sweet, with some hops, grassiness and a hint of maple syrup, but I think its dampened by the head. Taste is very sweet - golden syrup, caramel, with a hint of hops, a little honey. Cask suits it, but leaves it a shade cloying. Need to drink it slowly. Sweet finish dies after a medium length of time, leaving a lifting grassy bitterness to end. Good stuff.

Chelmsford Beer Festival. Pretty much a clear gold - amber beer. Little pale cream coloured head. Palate is smooth and semi dry. Super mild carbonation. Lactose sweet malt with a nice nutty caramel. Floral dried fruits, Touch of licorice. The milky sweetness holds this sweetish and clean barley wine together.
