[on cask somewhere in Edinburgh] Earthy hops aroma in balance with sweet caramel and toffee and apple. Clear red-brown under a lasting, off-white cover. Smooth and creamy gentle toffee flavour with subtle hops bitterness balanced by sweet malt. Hops flavour apparent and earthy and a bit spicy. Light to medium body, low carbonation, sweet toffee finish.

BeerCast_Rich (1906) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - FEB 20, 2012
[cask at Cloisters Bar, Edinburgh] Deep bronze pour, thin white head. Blackcurrant and earthy malt on the aroma. Creamy roast on the palate, with a soft, rising caramel sweetness. Fruity on the finish, before a bit more dryness. Decent enough [18022012]

AshtonMcCobb (5158) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - NOV 8, 2011
Cask at Cloisters. Pours a mahogany colour with a nice creamy hesd. The nose has some liquorice with a biscuity background. The taste is more liquorice. The palate has a medium to big body with a good texture in the middle section and a nice elegant falling away finish. Overall, a nice ale!

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.

imdownthepub (13040) - Banbury, Oxfordshire, ENGLAND - JUL 16, 2011
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. It’s ok.
