Pours clear, amber. Only a little head, which dissipates within 30s of pouring. Aroma is slightly grassy. Smoky flavor, must have some smoked malt in it? Reminiscent of smoked sausage. Very little carbonation.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 13/20
500ml bottle; shared with no one on 16th Feb 2015. Poured into a UK pint sleeve at home, only the dog watching. Lovely clear amber body, on top a full foaming blanket which is off-white. Malty and semi-sweet in the nose, distinct toffee and caramel aromas: the taste is as the smell indicated, malty sweetness, yet with a hidden hop bitterness and bite towards the finish. A little thin body wise, could have been more robust or creamier depending on what the brewer would prefer: a little less water and a bit more alcohol and this could be awesome.

2.6 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
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.

2.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 11/20
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.
