Cask in Edinburgh. Pours brown with a white head. Smooth taste but very mediocre in many ways. A very typical real. Somewhat sweet fruity aroma.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Cask conditioned at Cloisters Bar, Edinburgh. Tawny brown with cream head. Smooth, creamy, malty beer, generally in the Scottish style, not too much hop impact apart from a light earthiness and just a hint of tarty fruitiness. Itís ok.

Cask-conditioned at Cloisters, Edinburgh 7/06/2011. Deep brown with an off-white head. Rich, sweet, fruity malt and nut aroma. Sweet toffee aroma, with more fruit and a contrasting slightly herbal edge leading to a dryish, hoppy finish. Very good.

Cask at Cloisters. Pour is reddish/copper with a decent white head. Aroma is vaguely medicinal, bit of toffee, bit of hops. Mouthfeel is rich, flavour is toffee malt with a light bitter finish. Fine, drinkable, but distinctly average.

Medium beige creamy head. Deep brown body. No discernible aroma. Dry-sweet roasty earthy fruity taste with floral musty notes. Mild, smooth mouthfeel. Mid-bodied. Dryish roasty wooden aftertaste with earthy notes. Decent, but nothing special. (0.25l cask, Cloisters, Edinburgh.)

2.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
Cask @ Cloisters, Edinburgh.
Pours a nice chestnut colour, with a small, creamy, off-white head. Aroma has almonds, rather sweet malts and toasted caramel. Low carbonation, a bit thin. Okay flavours with okay bitterness. Some toasted caramel, softly roasted and a bit sweet. Quite dull.
