3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
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.

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.

3.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
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.

2.1 AROMA 2/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
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.

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.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
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.

2.8 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
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.
