AshtonMcCobb (2923) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - SEP 13, 2014
On cask at Cloisters. Appearance - golden amber with a nice head. Nose - big orange note and biscuity malt background. Taste - more oranges well melded with the biscuit malt. Palate - medium bodied with a big tangy texture and a fairly good finish. Not quite as fresh as I’d prefer but still good. Overall - very nice but would increase the bittering ever so slightly.
