3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Pint in the Fife Arms,Dufftown, Scotland
Light brown colour,small off white head. Plenty laceing
Very malty aroma though not quite as sweet as others.
Has a quite distinctive malty and nutty taste ..the nuttiness raises this above the average 70 shilling type ales.
Nice palate, refreshing and well carbonated.
I found this very drinkable..good session brew.

2.8 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 10/20
Keg tap at the Hole in the Wall, Dumfries. Tawny brown with a sizeable creamy head. Smells of very little: a bit of plummy/appley sweetness with some malt. Taste is pleasant enough - a fruitcake malt unless dominates - but again shockingly slight. Not a lot to this beverage at all really.

2.3 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 8/20
1/2 pint draught, The Blue Blazer, Edinburgh. Reddish brown colour with a fine-laced off-white head. Slightly nutty and crisp aroma. Served too cold. Lightly bitter when it enters the mouth. Drying bitter sensation. Typical lager-like crispness. Prickly sensation from carbonation. Finishes dry with a light roasted maltiness.

Draught. This is a thin and tinny bitter that does not really have a whole lot going for it.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Clear orange color, short creamy lasting head. More caramel and toffee than 80 Shilling, note of hazelnut. Not really bitter, lingering palate. Quite nice. (yep, i drank this one with caesar)

Keg (cask may be better): Had this after the 80 and seemed to waive a little in terms of flavor. To its credit there’s a little peated smokiness, while it’s definitely tuned to session drinking.

On tap in Glasgow, named "Tartan Special". Great hop balance. Aromas of caramel, grass, and coke. Taste is sweet and bitter. Palate is velvety, and medium bodied. Amber, with a frothy head.
