scotty (1157) - SCOTLAND - JUN 8, 2013
Cask, ’Spoons, Hawick. Looks great apart from a slight haze, that lost it a point! Dark ruby with a tight white head, good lacing down the glass. Nose and taste bursts with roast malts, a delicious brew, good lingering finish, glad I popped in here after my walk!

kwik-lime (1715) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - FEB 20, 2012
Weak aroma. Looks good though, dark with a creamy-beige head. Light taste of roasted malt, slightly watery palate. Very drinkable as you’d expect from a mild. Decent overall.

tombyars (1602) - Saltcoats, SCOTLAND - FEB 15, 2012
Tasted this in the Salt Cot, Saltcoats (JDW) in May 2010. Cask, handpump dispense. Clear ruby red in colour with a thin buff head. Roast malt and then sweet winegums in the short aroma. Thin watery mouthfeel and poor lacing. Mixed malts give sweet fruit flavours of redcurrant and grape. A dry woody note present in the short bitter aftertaste. Finish is sweet with a strong vinous edge. An ok session mild.
