Cask; Regular.
A golden copper coloured ale, which has a thick and creamy off-white head that laces your glass all the way to the bottom, leaving you wanting more. A marriage of Pilgrim, East Kent Goldings and Cascade hops presents a delicate citrus aroma and a unique spicy floral taste.

bobinlondon (1256) - Harrow, Greater London, ENGLAND - JUN 16, 2008
Handpulled at JDW Watford. Light copper with healthy white head. Nice well balanced ale with plenty of interesting characturistics. Had a scottish maltiness with an english bitterness, if you get my meaning! Very quaffable.

downender (6275) - Bristol, Gloucestershire, ENGLAND - MAY 30, 2008
Cask-conditioned at the Three Guineas, Reading 29/5/08. Pale amber with a decent white head, that proved short-lived. Aroma of caramel balanced well by some grassy hops and fruit. Flavour started with some sweet malt before a decent, hoppy finish. A good effort.

wheresthepath (1532) - Buckinghamshire, ENGLAND - MAY 21, 2008
[on draught in the Three Guineas, Reading] Amber with a moderate lasting head. Flavours are the standard best bitter ones - dusty straw, red fruits - but these are of greater depth than usual. They are balanced against a deep refreshing bitterness - more bitter than usual for the genre, and surprisingly bitter for a Scottish ale. All in all this is a very good example of the genre, but isn’t different enough to stand out.

FatPhil (9344) - Tallinn, ESTONIA - APR 26, 2008
Cask (Pullman, Helsinki)
Rich amber, decent frothy head. Raw grainy aroma - musky and smoky - even cerealy, and some black tea too. Fairly simple bitter taste, good bitter hops. Fairly refreshing. Malts are quite grainy, husky and approaching sour. Reasonably long finish.

maeib (8711) - Wootton, Northampton, Northamptonshire, ENGLAND - AUG 26, 2007
Cask conditioned - gravity dispense - Peterborough BF. A copper coloured beer with an off-white head. The aroma is malty and fudgy with a hint of toffee and nuts. The taste is more of the same. Very retro Scottish methinks.

Nuffield (3671) - Roseville, Minnesota, USA - JUL 20, 2007
