COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Cask; Seasonal - Winter.
It may be frosty outside, but a pint of Jock Frost will soon warm you up. It's a full bodied, well balanced premium bitter.

Cask by handpump at Hengler’s Circus, Glasgow - clear golden, good creamy off-white head, aroma and flavour is yeast, caramel, hint of citrus on the flavour, very easy to drink,

tombyars (1352) - Saltcoats, SCOTLAND - JAN 20, 2012
First tasted this in Gabriels, Paisley in February 1999. Cask, handpump dispense. Crystal clear pale straw in colour with a thin white head. Strong lemon peel note evident in the intense fruity aroma. Thin resiny mouthfeel and good lacing throughout. Pale malt gives a slight digestive biscuit note but this is soon lost to the tart citric notes of grapefruit and lemon zest which rapidly build up. Astringent dusty hop resins give a very dry aftertaste. Finish is again dry with hop resins and oak cask very much in evidence in the dessication process. Not one of my favourites for Winter.

Benjii (3049) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - JAN 8, 2012
On cask at Cloisters. Pours a golden colour with a decent white head. Aroma of musty yeast, caramel and hay. Similar flavours with a little lemon to finish. Moderate carbonation and a foamy mouth-feel.

AshtonMcCobb (2458) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - DEC 30, 2011
UPDATED: JAN 8, 2012 Re-rate @ Steam Packet, Isle of Whithorn. Pours amber with a decent head. The nose has malt and grapes. The taste has biscuits and sultanas. The palate is medium in structure and texture and there is a clean finish. Overall, a great improvement since this pub seems to be able to keep its ales well. Previous rating 30/12/11 5+3+4+2+7 = 2.1 On cask at Bert’s Bar, Edinburgh. Pours golden with a slim head. The nose has soggy Frosties and a mild yeast aroma. The taste is green apple and hay which makes me think it has gone off. The palate is medium bodied and medium textured with a burnt astringent finish. Overall, not good at all but I don’t think this is how the brewer wanted it to taste, so it deserves another try in the future.

KnutAlbert (6067) - Oslo, NORWAY - DEC 23, 2010
Cask at Tiles, Edinburgh. Malty, a hint of yeast. Fine and sublte bitter finish. Nothing amazing about this, and nothing seasonal, either. An honest bitter.

JohnRMurdoch (3240) - Glasgow, SCOTLAND - DEC 20, 2010
Cask @ The State Bar. Citrus & tropical fruit aroma. Good golden colour. Citrus fruit & resin flavour. A bit unbalanced. More of a blonde ale than a premium bitter.

cask at blue blazer edinburgh ... The best think about this beer was i went to the pub to try it and discovered the Black Isle Oatmeal Stout :-) ... Amber.. creamy head ... light hop nose ... light mellow lemon hop ... little grapefruit.

RoyceH (1196) - Hesperange, LUXEMBOURG - DEC 5, 2006
Cask, Central, St Andrews. Aroma is quite malty, some hops there, some winter fruit. Appearance is mid-range amber, thick off-white head. Flavour is biscuity, chewy hops. Then in the aftertaste, some maltiness. Oversweet. Normal, but in the same sense over-everything. Take it or leave it.
