Bottle from BeerRitz in Leeds. Chestnut with a cream head. Pine hops on the nose. Taste is bitter, but fruity at first before a really good pine and citrus finish. Very good.

EyeAmBaldman (236) - Illinois, USA - DEC 15, 2013
Found this in a craft beer store in Gatlinburg, TN. Was just looking for a Scottish beer. Pours ruby red. Aroma was fruity and floral. Notes of caramel in the taste. Was not too overbearing in bitterness. Fell in love with this beer and started me on the path for the ultimate beer taste. This beer is so smooth. I’m sure if I ever get an chance to sample it again I will be disappointed.

Bottled 0,50L. Dark brown hazy color, nearly braced aspect with a foamy head of long duration. Very burned woody aroma, notes of braced malt, alcohol, roast cask, barrel and ash. Intense woody and alcoholic taste, ashed and dried mouth, medium smooth body with a long bitter end.

Oginme (44) - New Hampshire, USA - JUL 28, 2013
pours a nice clear red color with a smallish head, quickly diminishing. Aroma is caramel malty with grassy, floral/herbal hop nose dominating quickly. taste was initial sweet caramel and finished with moderate spicy hop bitterness. medium light body, moderate to high carbonation. It’s an OK drink and safe bitter style, not at all like the scottish ale suggested on the label.
