At first the malts come across as strongest in the nose but hops quickly join in. Clear brown body is topped by a strong and lasting off white head tjat coats the sides of the glass with lacing. Pronounced bitterness doesn’t overwhelm the sweet malts and lightly roasty malts that blend wonderfully in the mouth. Medium body with fair to moderate carbonation and wonderful smooth texture in the mouth. This cask is in nice shape! Enjoyed on cask at the Halfway House in Edinburgh in September 2012.
