3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle from Tomlinsons, Inverness. It pours clear amber with a thick beige head. The nose is wood, earth, toffee, light toast, apricot and peach. The taste is earth, wood, leather, decent bitterness, toast, light spice and a touch of citrus with a set finish. Medium body and fine-moderate carbonation. Good balance. Nothing particularly exciting, but a solid bitterness nonetheless.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
330ml bottle - Pleasant faint taste of hops in the background. I really enjoyed this, however I was particularly thirsty and that may have affected my judgement. Good flavour for a 3.9 alc.
