Half Pint on Cask from Oak Tree Inn, Balmaha (£1.75):
Not a bad beer from the Loch Lomond brewery here, a drink that started off well with an excellent appearance and the rest wasn’t too bad either in truth. The taste and nose were really quite bitter with a lot of dark and roasted flavours fighting for your attention but thankfully the beer was so smooth that it went down easily enough. A pleasant drink but one that I was glad to only have a half pint of, I felt that a pint of the stuff might have been a bit boring towards the end.

Cask-conditioned at the Seven Stars, Bristol 5/3/2015. Almost black in colour, with a thin, beige, head. A tasty, dense, stout, with plain chocolate, liquorice and toasted malts, ending up with a dryish finish. Very good.
