3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Cask pint in Cafe Royal, Edinburgh on 25th Oct 2014. Ruby hue to the reddy/brown body, on top a full off-white blanket of bubbles. The nose had a semi-sweet fruitiness with a Rye like dryness in the taste. Add some mild spice and subtle nuttiness to the flavours and you are getting there in the taste. Ends with a very dry and bitter finish. A tidy and different brew.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
A kind of ’red bitter’ or ’Scottish red’ if you will, caramel malty beer with smoky and toasty flavours, honeyish, buttermilk (diacetyl) and long bitter finish with both hop bitterness and roasted bitterness. Interesting.

cask at filmhouse of all places. reasonably well kept translucent ruby beer. slightly creamy. sweet fruits, light spice, gentle nuttiness overwhelmed by a bitter finish. a bit thin. not the worst kelburn ale but I'm still not a huge fan and this isn't doing much to change my mind.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Ruby red colour, with a white-off white head. Aroma was rich in malt, biscuit, caramel, a hint of coffeee, with a faint hint of hops. Taste was very well balanced, very drinkable. The texture was oily, could have been a bit more on the palate- it felt a little thin. Overall a tasty beer, would buy another.
