3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Chewy toffee, caramel and bready, malt forward aroma. Clear, deep burnished copper coloured body is topped by a dense, fine bubbled, creamy, white head that lasts throughout and coats the glass. Mild dark malt character and leafy hops take the edge off thick, sweet, caramel maltiness with a slightly sour note and some earhty, floral character. Medium full body with moderate carbonation that fills the mouth. On draught at The Douglas Arms in Bothwell, Scotland (May-06).

3.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Pint: Fife Arms Hotel, Dufftown,Scotland.
Slightly murky brown( some cascading effect),with a large creamy off white head
The aroma is pretty subdued, due probably to this being served a tad too chilled. As it warms pleasant malts appear.
Very very smooth beer the taste is of sweet malts but with chocolaty and nutty accents.Small taste of hops at the very end,.
wonderful mouthfeel, exceptionally smooth.
Exceptional drinkability, I had several pints..nice,

3.3 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 14/20
Thin-bodied malty Scottish session ale. Poured the colour of toffee with a skinny head. The classic Scottish nose has plenty of toasted malt and nuts. The light body seems insubstantial for the abv and style. Sweet malt is the dominant flavour, with some raisins in the middle. Echoes of some of the sweeter light English stouts. A good quaffer but a little skinny. (Bottle)
