COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
You may want to call this our 80 Shilling but with a bit more hops. A reddish brown tone with a complex malty taste, coming from the blending of both colored malts and wheat malt, resulting in a refreshing, grassy and fruity ale with a hoppy finish.

gegwilson (1466) - North Yorkshire, ENGLAND - NOV 14, 2014
Ppurs deep amber with a cream froth. Quite a fruity taste with light spice and a touch of soap. The best of a pretty bad bunch from this brewery.

allmyvinyl (4244) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - OCT 1, 2014
500ml bottle from the Scottish Real Ale Shop. Pours clear amber, no real head. Aromas are malty toffee, light herbs. Taste brings a nuttiness, more toffee sweet. Thin body and a watery finish. OK.

Scopey (7430) - Croydon, Greater London, ENGLAND - MAY 5, 2014
Bottle from Inverness Airport. It pours clear copper with a small white head. The nose is toasty, brown sugar, golden syrup and brown bread. The taste is toasty, decent bitterness, leather, wood, digestive biscuits, touch watery, light metallic and peppery notes with a dry finish. Lightish body and high, prickly carbonation. Carbonation is a bit too much of a dominating component of this beer. Ok.

MrJamesMcEwan (54) - SCOTLAND - APR 26, 2014
UPDATED: MAY 5, 2014 Bottle. Pours reddish brown with a medium sized white head that disappates. Medium bodied, high carbonation. Aroma is a rich malt, of soda bread and fruitcake. Taste is very malty, sweet brown sugar & fruity finish. Good mouthfeel, though high carbonation.

Weefannybaws (104) - Paisley, SCOTLAND - NOV 24, 2013
500ml bottle from Aldi. Dark amber ale with malty taste. Sweet toffee aftertaste. Quite nice. Would go well with crisps or nuts.

Taste at the Paisley Beer Festival. Dark brown colour. A touch hazy. Not brilliant. Okay I suppose.

Cask by gravity at Paisley Beer Festival - hazy brown, non-existent head, toasted bread aroma, very faint malty, minimal hop, bit thin, inoffensive, drinkable
