A great burnished copper strong ale. The malty palate is finely balanced Saaz hops to give a full flavoured yet refreshing beer.

tombyars (1332) - Saltcoats, - JAN 22, 2013
Tasted this in the Last Post, Paisley (JDW) in January 2013. Cask, handpump dispense. Clear pale russet in colour with a thin creamy white head. Smooth malty aroma with sweet toffee and rum notes. Thin but creamy mouthfeel and excellent lacing throughout. Pale malt gives a fiery malt loaf base with syrupy raisins, mashed overipe bananas and highland toffee flavours present. There is a brief dry peppery note from the short hop resins but the aftertaste fades fast. Finish is strong and malty with boozy rum notes mixed with sweet toffee. There is a strong redolant note of teak oil leaving the palate quite dry at the end. This is a decent Scottish ESB and well recommended.
