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.
