COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
The colour of burnished copper, strong with a caramely sweetness. A malt driven beer, lightly balanced with our own Goldings and Willamette fresh hop flowers. The grain make up in this beer is a tightly kept secret. It has taken 7 years to perfect and is a very special blend of English Malts, some of which are dark roasted to impart the toffee and sweet flavours of this ale.

Nice poor, deep deep brown, slight head. Funky aroma at first followed by a toasty sweet syrupy flavor and taste which finnishes with just a slight bitterness. Really good warming winter beer.

Recently got onto the Scotch Ales. warm feeling beer, suitable as a one off after dinner on a cold night. Taste is strong, but not over bearing, with toffee, caramel, woods, and a slight tinge of alcohol towards the end of the swig. Somewhat dark when poured. Worth a look you like darker ales.

ChrisO ’Night Of The Gaylords’ tasting. Hazy dark brown beer. Some light malt on the nose. Light dry and softish palate. Tired malt with mild toffee. Finishes soft and dry. Okay but a bit dull.

ALLOVATE (2458) - Perth, AUSTRALIA - APR 30, 2012
From the bottle, just on cool. Dense, compact, creamy beige head atop a deepest ruby body that simply shimmers in the light. Very odd aroma reminiscent of pine, nail varnish, enoki mushroom, latex gloves, sticky toffee and raw hazelnuts. Cleaned up in flavour. Generously malty; sweet upfront, sticky toffee and burnt sugar meets rust and blood tannins, burnt charred timber and dusty old hops in back. Smoky, chalky finish has just a touch of sherry to it. Knocks above its weight, well rounded and rather smooth. Still get that odd mushroom note coming through in the aftertaste. An interesting brew. Well made and very quaffable. (33cL, no date stamp, Cellarbrations Carlisle)

Brenhophead (582) - Perth, AUSTRALIA - JAN 14, 2012
Pours a deep amber with a small head and minimal laving + aroma of the morning camp fire after a nights camping with a hint of sweetness. The flavour is confusing mainly sweetness with a slight ashey backing. This beer is quite different but not a stand out IMO.

A little thin and watery, but at least it is not too high in ABV. Not really like a scotch ale to me.
