Bright brick amber. Caramelly nose with diacetyl in there as well. Soft caramel character. This is a very mellow beer. Sweet finish. I can see where they’re going but it’s not my favourite.

imdownthepub (10651) - 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, it’s ok.
