Absolute heaven. A dark pint with a malty nose and a hint of caramel and vanilla. These flow through to the tastebauds well but a hint of berry fruitiness is added for good measure. I tried this in the state bar in Glasgow. It was so good we stayed there the rest of the night, and even went back the next.

hope im rating the right one again- aged 18 months thanks to tom- smells like apples pours reddish brown in colour grey head does smell of green apple, most apple of any beer ever. taste is slightly white wine in frinish up front it is light and buttery. slightly medicinal nose stands out in this delicately aged brew.

Pours dark brownish orange with a tiny off-white head. Sugary mildly almondy and toasty ale with macadamia nuts nuances. Growing bready sweetness, not very balanced. Absent hops. Interesting puh-erh tea earthiness, but as watery as tea as well. Dull.

A Sim rate (cask at The State - Glasgow): Slight berry/plum aroma, but definitely not enough. Apple and sweet caramel in the flavour but with a bitter finish. Very watery. Strange that the overall score works out unequal to the sum of its parts. I suppose that’s because although the elements don’t all stand alone well, they make quite a good beer.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
On graught at the Cloisters, Edinburgh: Ruby amber coloured, small, but firm creamy tanned head, sweetish nutty, a bit fruity and roastmalty; astonishingly full bodied for a beer of 4.3 % ABV, solid sweet-bitter flavour, smooth; dries out towards the bitter-sweet finish, lingering roast-malty aftertaste. A very fine Ale........

UPDATED: APR 22, 2011 Dark brown, with a sweet malt aroma, and a balanced yet complex full rounded malt with a little smooth smokey roast malt ... nice toffe caramel malt linger... Normally this is a good to great beer but When this is in top condition its a Stunning beer. I love it, and the fact i can get 5l minicaks just makes it better
well since there Ginger beer doesnt count as a beer, but id like to keep a record of it ... light hazy yellow white ... big ginger ... soft lemon grass nose ... light fizz (seems natural rather than force carbonated) ... light sweetness ... hint of lemon .. loads of gingers ... clean fresh lovely
despit the low carbonation, it does seem to make me quite gassy... but all told i really like this. 3.8
