COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Cask; Regular. also available bottled.
In 1940 a special training school was set-up in Tobermory with the purpose of teaching anti-Submarine warfare to newly formed crews of frigates, corvettes, sloops and Patrol Service trawlers. Vice-Admiral Sir Gilbert Stephenson KBE, CB, CMG commanded this 2-3 week intensive course.
Stephenson was in his mid-sixties and his methods, being brutal and controversial, were much talked about by those serving under him. Stories and anecdotes of this extremely efficient, strict and energetic man led to TV personality Richard Baker, who served under him, producing a book about him in 1972 titled "The Terror Of Tobermory" (W.H. Allen).

AshtonMcCobb (2314) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - JUL 10, 2014
Bottle at McGochans bar restaurant in Tobermory. Appearance - cloudy amber brown with a decent head. Nose - honey and hazelnuts. Taste - more hazelnuts against a more lasting honey and caramel note. Palate - close to medium bodied with a creamy texture and a fairly good finish. Overall - I’d say this was a Scottish Ale in style. Decent but the weakest of their 3 regular beers.

Brown colour with a hint of orange. Very little head and carbonation so easy drinking. Grassy aroma. Malty flavour. Taste of soda bread.

Grumbo (525) - Suffolk, ENGLAND - APR 12, 2014
Bottle from Tomlinson’s Beer Shop, Inverness. Pours a fairly uninspiring dark amber colour with a small off-white head. Caramel malt aroma. Moderately sweet, medium body, quite flat carbonation, caramel finish - quite enjoyed this.

mighty_meadow (152) - Kilwinning, SCOTLAND - NOV 14, 2013
Does what it says on the tin, or bottle in this instance. Malty, bit of fruit, hoppy finish. Chestnut coloured with hint of orange. Thin head and pretty decent lacing. Nothing particularly unique about this but very enjoyable. I will buy again. 500ml bottle poured into straight glass.

Weefannybaws (85) - Paisley, SCOTLAND - SEP 13, 2013
Cask at Paisley Beer Festival. A great name, but sadly the ale doesn’t live up to it’s namesake. Toffee taste. Definitely not a session ale - one more of them and I’ll vomit. Great with crisps or nuts, I’d imagine.

McWorta (544) - LUXEMBOURG - JUL 22, 2013
Light hazy golden colour, with a small whitish head. On the nose, hops, straw and floral notes. Soft, velvety notes of sweetness and hints of bitterness. Well balanced with an average finish.

sic1314 (3048) - Leiden, NETHERLANDS - MAY 26, 2013
Poured a medium amber with a small off white head. Aroma of toasted caramel malt. Medium body, flavour of sweet berries and dry caramel malt with a dry finish.

jmgreenuk (4011) - The Hague, NETHERLANDS - APR 24, 2013
Bottle from Cotteridge Wines, Birmingham. Poured a hazy medium brown with a frothy white head and some broken white lace, The aroma is dry, crisp, yeasty and malty. The flavour is medium bitter, slightly metallic on the palate with lots of bitterness and malt in the aftertate. Very drinkble & refreshing too. Deserves a slightly better rating IMO.

imdownthepub (9954) - Banbury, Oxfordshire, ENGLAND - MAY 1, 2012
Bottled, 500ml fro Stirchley Wines & Spirits, Birmingham. Amber with slight head. This appeared to be really flat to me. Thin malts, a touch piney, a touch metallic. Toffee with some liquorice note, sweet and fairly dull. Not great.
