AshtonMcCobb (2945) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - AUG 21, 2012
On tap @ the Haymarket. Pours dark amber with a nice head. The nose has toffee and cream with a little bit of raisin in there. The taste is a little bit cardboardy and the malt on the finish is astringent. The palate is medium bodied with a medium thick textjure and a slightly astringent finish, unfortunately. Overall, this is the worst beer Iíve had from this brewery, so I must assume something has not been carried out correctly by the pub, so will need to re-rate.

Cask Aitken Fount @ Diggers, Edinburgh 260712
Caramel brown, clear, creamy head, good lacing
Aroma - dark caramel malts, quite rich sweet dark malts, light hops
Taste - caramel malts, malty, some fruit dark malt, touch of bready malt, hint of spicy hop, nice easy drinking beer, bit of toasted malts, this soft understated beer really works for me
Palate - soft carb, medium body. Finish as main flavour
Overall - This is the best 80/- iíve had...way better than Caledonians.

Decent scottish heavy, though there is very little that is "heavy" about this beer. Light amber appearance with a watery mouthfeel. Mild and a little skunky with a bit of fruit at the end.

niquillis (1220) - Stoke on Trent, Staffordshire, ENGLAND - JUL 31, 2011
On cask at The Robert Nairn, Kirkcaldy. A chestnut coloured ale with a red hue. Toffee, caramels, roasted flavour. A nice change to the abundance of bland golden ales in Scotland today. Enjoyable stuff.

imdownthepub (10662) - Banbury, Oxfordshire, ENGLAND - JUL 15, 2011
Cask conditioned at The Stockbridge Tap, Edinburgh. Chestnut with cream head. Malty, sweet Scottish ales used to be the norm, before the god of hops intervened. This is really quite a decent version, some toffee caramel, a bit of roastiness, itís ok.
