cask at Bow Bar in Edinburgh - Pours amber gold with a small, lasting head and good lacing. It smells of hops and lightly fruity malt. The flavor has good bitterness and is well balanced. It’s smooth, medium bodied, and quite quaffable.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
500 ml bottle, thanks to my beerpal Olav who brought it home from the Orkneys. ABV is 6%. Deep golden colour, big to moderate white head, some lacing. Fairly nice aroma, fruity and herbal hops, also noticeable malts, hints of toffee. The flavour has acceptable malts but is not very sweet, with distinct herbal and "dusty" English hops in the finish. Okay.

Bottle from Corks, Bristol. Amber in colour with plenty of carbonation. Malty, marmalade and fruity hop aroma. Flavour was sweet, with some citrus hop, sticky malts and short dry finish. Good without standing out.

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Floral-fruity, rather complex bit confusing aroma! Golden colour, no head and clear having light sweet, medium bitter flavour.
Bit oily, slick, medium body, very soft carbonation, tickling on tongue tip, good finish.
No blast but a nice breeze.

One-third pint, gravicask, SIBA Brewery Bar, GBBF. Appealing clear copper coloured body. Display of laceworks on the glass. Fine aromas of dry, late fruits. The taste character is a blend of dried fruits and malts ending up with a rather long-lived bittersweet ending. A bit vinous on the swallow. Harmonious and good (Earls Court, London 06.08.2009).
