Bottled, thanks oh6gdx! Cloudy orange. fruity nose with peach, plastic and chalk. Sweetish with light body. Like most Islay ales it is predominantly chalky - here with an addition of plastic and rubber. Peachy hops before a finish with some chemical bitterness. Quite unpleasant.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle at the Jurancon Hotel in Craighouse.
Appearance - deep brown with a lovely fluffy head.
Nose - sweet malt, light toffee and nuts.
Taste - like cereal saturated in milk. More of the light toffee note.
Palate - light to medium bodied with a creamy texture and a fairly good finish.
Overall - I’d say this was more in the Scottish Ale style than Bitter. Solid enough.
