Dr_Butty (87) - SCOTLAND - JAN 20, 2012
Edinburgh Airport Wetherspoons. Golden bitter with a modest head which dors hang around. Beer a bit too chilled. Little aroma, but clean fruity taste, slightly citric and very refreshing. Good to see local brews on at the airport rather than the generic nationals.

Cask. Cloudy yellow with white head. Slight yeasty aroma. Mil and sweet ale-y flavour, could do with some more hops to balance it out. Decent session beer.

dantheman278 (1361) - SCOTLAND - SEP 12, 2011
Cask at Teviot. Dark, clear orange pour. medium bubbly head. Sweet yeasty caramel aroma. Sweet palate, full and rich but not enough hop bitterness to balance it. Perfectly drinkable, if a little sweet, but by no means exciting.
