tombyars (1396) - Saltcoats, SCOTLAND - FEB 10, 2012
Tasted this in the Last Post, Paisley in November 2002. Cask, handpump dispense. Clear pale mahogany in colour with a thin white head. Floral hop resins in the short aromatic aroma. Thin resiny mouthfeel and good lacing. Pale malts give a digestive biscuit base with a distinct fruity flavour of pears. Bitter smack of hop resins present in the earthy aftertaste. Finish is slightly edged towards the malt with oak cask dry notes present. An ok session bitter.

Pint pulled at Weatherspoons (Putney, London) as part of their Great Autumn Beer Festival. Ruby brown in colour with a thick creamy head. The aroma is strong with fruity hops with malty undertones. The flavour is quite floral with the strong presense of the Maris Otter malt. Beautifully smooth with the bitterness coming through.
