3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Cask at the Stockbridge Tap, Edinburgh. Light copper or dark gold. Clear with a thin not-quite-white head. Aroma of berries and citrus, it’s pleasant but somewhat unfocused. Sweet taste with a bitter hoppy edge. Some unexpected astringency in the finish. Despite some balance issues, I am quite fond of this.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
On tap @ the Bow Bar Winter beer festival.
Appearance - golden with a nicely proportioned head.
Nose - confectionery, maybe dried fruits. Parma violets.
Taste - more dried fruit.
Palate - medium bodied with a big creamy texture and a tangy but slightly too sweet finish.
Overall - it’s tasty but it doesn’t make me want to have another. Perhaps adding blackberries to a darker stronger beer is more usual and more appropriate.
