3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle from Appellation Wines.
Appearance - amber with a decent head.
Nose - red and orange fruit. A touch ofshortbread.
Taste - light red fruit and very faint biscuit.
Palate - light to medium bodied with a creamy texture and a long dry finish.
Overall - I think this is an amber ale. It’s tasty. A bitter would have more biscuit notes. But it’s very enjoyable.

Cask @The Hanging Bat, Edinburgh. Pours copper/amber slight haze with a white head. Nose is caramel and toffee straight up sweetness but then you get a slight grass and then some hops. taste is hoppy bitterness at first then it turns biscuit sweet like a digestive biscuit. Then you get a bitter finish after taste, nice.
