3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Cask at the Bon Accord, Glasgow, via hanpump through sparkler, on 22 April 2010. Amber with thick lasting and lacing creamy white head. Malty without being excessively sweet. Pungent earthy aroma and notes of berry fruit. Malt returns in the finish on a smooth creamy mouthfeel that encourages fast drinking.

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.

3.1 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
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.

2.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 12/20
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.
