A delightful Scottish beer inspired by a brewing book from 1847 where there is a story about a beer that is clear and very brisk, and, consequently, very agreeable to the palate. Our modern interpretation of this beer uses four different malts (Pale Ale, Crystal, Chocolate and Roast Barley). Hops are added in small quantities in two stages to ensure that the malt character typical of Scottish ales is not overwhelmed.

MrJamesMcEwan (65) - SCOTLAND - SEP 6, 2014
Bottle. Pours clear, brown, with a good slightly tanned frothy head that holds well. Full bodied, very high carbonation, fine bubbles, lacing. Aroma is woody, chocolate and earth. Taste is earthy but not many flavours. Palate is too high carbonation. Finish is poor, crisp. Not recommended.

Reasonable price, amazingly smooth palette, and an uncharacteristically rich malt flavor for a scottish beer. Worth a try.

jamestulloch (1725) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - AUG 31, 2014
Cask at The Golf Tavern. Clear mahogany body with a thin off-white head. Light lacing. Aroma of toffee, earth and wood. Flavour of builder’s tea, toffee, sweet malt and treacle. Medium body with a flat, oily texture. Sweet and a little cloying.

Jow (2356) - New York, USA - AUG 19, 2014
Tap at Guildford Arms. Mild nose of earth and bread. Tastes of pumpernickel, dried fruits, malt, earth, and brown paper lunch bag. All subdued with simple finish. Basic but fine

Scopey (7869) - Croydon, Greater London, ENGLAND - AUG 18, 2014
Cask at Guildford Arms. It pours deep brown with a decent beige head. The nose is brown bread, wood, dried fruits, boiled sweets and toffee. The taste is bitter, toasty grain, brown bread, earth, light toffee, candy and dirt with a dry finish. Medium body and soft carbonation. Fairly basic, but drinkable enough.

Clear deep amber beer, residual pale tan head. Palate is light and a little crispy. Light dry malts, whisper of toffee, touches of cream and paper. Whisper of dried fruits. Light dry finish. Pretty dull.

330ml bottle Appellation Wines. Pours clear chestnut brown, no head. Aromas are dark sugar, roasted nuts, light smoke. Taste has a dark chocolate sweetness, more sugar, and light herbal bitterness. would like to try on cask, but a bit disappointing bottled.
