3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 12/20
Cask, Bodega, Newcastle. A golden affair with a thin pallid head. Sweet malt aroma with some fruitiness. A hint of spice in the flavour which was again on the sweet side. Medium bitter finish. Rather unrefined and simple. Glaggable.

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Cask at the Bow bar??, Edinburgh, 20-03-09 on Craig’s crawl of Edinburgh’s finest establishments. Pours warm gold with a white head, there’s no denying this is a good looker. Alcohol tends to show a little too much and there is also some syrupy sweetness which is just a bit heavy handed that aside its a actually a very nice beer. There is a pleasant lingering aftertaste with asurprising amount of dryness, its not bad but promised to be so much more A6 A5 F7 P3 OV13 3.4

UPDATED: FEB 19, 2009 Bottle from Baxters (the soup people) at Selkirk, where they have a small and pretty expensive range of beers! This was deep gold with a thin white head, Nose reminds me of rich fruit cake, with a bit of spice. Good full body and a bit on the sweet side. A good strong ale, the 6% creeps up on you!

2.8 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Cask, 6% at GBBF08. Weak fruity aroma. Almost clear copper colour. Small frothy white head. The flavour is quite peppery. OK body, but not much malt flavour to balance the alcohol. Rough alcohol finish.
