Floral on the nose and pours with a slight tinge of red from amber. Lots of caramel and buscuit, nice enough.

Theydon_Bois (7005) - The ’Sham, Surrey, ENGLAND - DEC 23, 2013
Bottle at the Night of Garbage, picked this up at Tomlinsons Inverness, 20/12/13 up a shit load of stairs ! Clear golden amber with little in the way of a head. Nose is paper and to be fucking specific a telephone directory that’s sat on the back porch for a week or two, hay, enamel, dull caramel. Taste comprises paper, very faint citrus, grass, pretty muted all round. Medium bodied, fine carbonation, crisp closure. This was drinkable, no defects per say, jsut a complete lack of any flavour ... dull dull dull !

Scopey (5557) - Croydon, Greater London, ENGLAND - DEC 21, 2013
Bottle at the Night of Garbage, thanks to Colin? It pours pale golden-amber with a tiny bubbly head. The nose is pretty limited.....sweetish, toasty, sugar paper and light popcorn. The taste is oily, sticky, sweet, grain, dull toast, toffee, and cereal. Lightish body, low carbonation and sticky mouth-feel. Poor condition. Really pretty dull and so-so

Pours a nice amber with a creamy head. Smell is dominated by malt. Taste is actually a nice bitter.

bottled at the bo bar just off the royal mile in edinburgh. appealing shade of golden with a modest head; loads of butterscotch in the aroma; quite crisp with a touch of cheesecake character. a reasonably faithful rendition of the style
