COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Cask; Regular.
Independence is a classic, full bodied and malty beer with subtle hints of mixed fruits and punches of spice. A perfect balance of Pilgrim and Saaz hops delivers a high quality, nicely rounded ale, with earthy and slightly spicy notes.

Hazy amber beer with a sweet initial flavour and a dry, tangy finish. Quite refreshing.

jd543 (389) - SCOTLAND - JUL 28, 2013
Amber colour with a thin off-white head. Malty and light spices on the nose. Taste is light sweet and bitter. OK, not that inspiring.

Weefannybaws (89) - Paisley, SCOTLAND - JUL 13, 2013
Pint in Blackfriars. Dark, golden on the eye, with light head. Slight malty nose. Spicy, malt taste. Perfect accompaniment to crisps and nuts.

Cask by handpump at Blackfriars, Glasgow - clear deep golden, thin creamy off-white head, caramel malty aroma, excellent lacing, creamy texture, sweet malty, hint of apple, refreshing drink

Imaena (1802) - Atlanta, Georgia, USA - MAY 10, 2013
Cask: This is a pretty average bitter with a nice sessionable ABV. Nothing special but not bad either.

stravale (2062) - Near Carrick-on-Shannon, IRELAND - JUN 28, 2012
Cask @ Golden Rule, Edinburgh
Dark golden amber, creamy white head, some lacing.
Aroma of fruity sweet caramel malts, not much on the nose
Taste - sweet caramel malts, honey, light fruits, some herbal notes, vague hint of almond? (!)
Palate - soft carb. medium body, oily, dryish. Some biscuit in the finish.
Overall - Slightly unusual flavour - one of their better beers.

AshtonMcCobb (2367) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - APR 27, 2012
In tap at the Queen’s Arms. Pours dark amber with a proportionate head. Nose of raisins, apricots with the toffee and expected biscuit crunch at the end. Taste of more apricots and toffee. Palate medium with a fairly balanced finish. Overall, liked it enough to take another.

rosenbergh (6582) - Helsinki, FINLAND - FEB 26, 2012
Cask at the Standing Order (JDW), Edinburgh, Scotland.
Clear golden amber colour with tiny frothy off-white head. Mild malty aroma. Malt and mild hops in flavour. Watery. Disappointment from Inveralmond.

tombyars (1348) - Saltcoats, SCOTLAND - JAN 30, 2012
First tasted this in Gabriels, Paisley in April 2000. Cask, handpump dispense. Clear pale garnet in colour with a thin white creamy head. Faint dusty hop flowers present in the short aroma. Thin resiny mouthfeel and good lacing. Pale malts give a digestive biscuit base with dry currants and red liquorice present. Slight metallic tang in the short bitter aftertaste. Finish has a slight malt edge with dry redcurrant fruit notes in the palate. An ok session bitter.

Benjii (3049) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - SEP 10, 2011
On cask at The Links. Pours a blonde colour with a thick white head. Aroma of caramel, yeast, barley and biscuity malt. Flavours of biscuity malt and Weetabix. Quite malty overall with a creamy mouth-feel and a moderate CO2 prickle. The finish is grassy and yeasty. OK but a little too highly carbonated for my tastes.
