Fruity, malty aroma. Noticeable alcohol. Not an easy drinker due to alcohol apparent in the taste as well. Medium to full body.

A fine ale! Strong and with rich flavours of rich malt, fruit, oak and alcohol. I’ve had lots of this over the years and I always come back for more :)

50cl bottle in a pint glass. Pours a thinnish dark brown liquid with little head but quite lively carbonation. Flavours are typical Scottish ale with fruits and yeast leading to a fairly bitter finish. Seems to vary quite a bit from batch to batch. A reasonable example.
