Sheffield uni beer festival. No head, a dusty, mucky brown. Sweet smell of prunes. Taste is similar, but with a bit of sour tang. Medium body.

tombyars (1411) - Saltcoats, SCOTLAND - MAY 7, 2014
Tasted this at the Paisley Beer Festival on the 24th April 2014. Cask, gravity dispense. Pours a cloudy mahogany in colour with an open off white head. Strong, intense aroma of butterscotch - smelling even better than Cairngorm Wildcat! Mixed malts deliver a cracking rich base of sweet banoffee pie, mixed with overripe strawberry fruit and chocolate fudge. Just a vague hint of hops in the briefest of aftertastes. Finish is sumptuous and smooth, malty with sweet notes of creamy butterscotch and caramelised strawberry, full in the mouth. Down as a ESB in the programme but I would place this as an Old Ale. For me this was beer of the Paisley Beer Festival 2014 and I could have drunk this quite happily all night. Highly recommended.

Gravity, Dover Beer Fest 2010. Smooth. Some light toffee malt. Drinkable, but not exciting.

Cask gravity at White Cliffs BF 2010. Chestnut colour, thin beige head. Decent premium bitter. OK flavours. Some fruity malt, some bitterness on finish.

imdownthepub (10651) - Banbury, Oxfordshire, ENGLAND - SEP 6, 2009
Cask conditioned at Harbury Beer fest ’09. Brown to copper with white head. Good beery malty beer, some roasted, earthy flavours and an overlying sweetness, fruity character. Doesn’t quite hit the top notes but reasonable.
