On tap at the Oban Bay Brewery. Great beer, full of contrasts. Aroma is earthy, with caramel, nuts, fresh malt, and pine. Taste is sweet, with some bitterness, and long length. Palate is velvety, and medium bodied. Amber, with a big frothy head.

KyotoLefty (6273) - Kyoto, JAPAN - MAR 20, 2010
From the keg in a pub on the Royal Mile in Edinburgh. Medium brown / amber color. Rich, malty aroma. Good rich flavor with caramel. Roasted flavor adds dryness as well. Decent hops at the finish make it very dry. Good stuff.

Jonte (1413) - Gothenburg, SWEDEN - SEP 14, 2009
Keg. Reddish light brown colour. Watery, some caramel, light bitterness, hint of metal. Served too cold. Like a standard keg bitter. Fully drinkable, but boring.
