One of the best Scottish reds - you can always rely on Orkney to produce nice beers.

marcot (770) - Campomorone, ITALY - MAY 16, 2011
In Cask all’O Connor; è il giusto formato in cui servirla, una buona bitter ma mi aspettavo meglio.

LordCorkscrew (1774) - Ronco Scrivia (GE), ITALY - MAR 6, 2011
Bella lì, prima ale dal cask, grazie all’avvedutezza di Maurizio dell’O Connor, primo locale a Genova ad offrire questa possibilità; si beve con grande facilità, la differenza con le ales in bottiglia provate è patente, è per questo servizio che una birra del genere è intesa; sul prodotto in sé, siamo nell’onestà, credo che si possa avere di meglio, ma tant’è tant’ò

UPDATED: OCT 13, 2011 Cask @ The State Bar & Chestnuts Hotel, Ayr. Oaty aroma. Medium brown colour. Sour fruity nutty flavour. Not as good as bottle version.

hughie (3996) - Bedford, Bedfordshire, ENGLAND - NOV 12, 2010
Cask, gravity, at Wellington Arms, Bedford, in ’4th’ Wellington Beer Festival ’10. Amber. Faint malt aroma. Some sweetness in the taste, with a good deal of earthiness. Sharp bitter finish.

Oakes (13293) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - OCT 13, 2010
Amber-red. Thick head. There’s a big chewy caramel aroma. Quite tasty. Toasty palate with chewy caramel accents. Good complexity and balance.

Beershine (5218) - The Sunshine State, Florida, USA - SEP 17, 2010
Cask @ Cumberland. Dark amber with lacing. Dry, earthy, aroma has some damp wood. Dry flavors are nice with mild roast. It’s not sweet, not toasty, not toasty, not bitter. It is a bit too safe? Boring.
