From cask at Cloisters. Pours clear and golden amber with a small tan head. Aroma is light breadish malty. Sweet flavoured with a solid malt back bone and a mild bitterness coming through. Light fruity into a mild citric finish, yet persisting malty and somewhat sweet.

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.

Scopey (12526) - Croydon, Greater London, ENGLAND - MAY 29, 2015
Cask at Cloisters. It pours clear deep amber with a decent off-white head. The nose is wood, earth, leather, light toffee and biscuit. The taste is firm bitterness, wood, resin, leather, caramel, brown bread and biscuit with a dry finish. Lingering bitterness. Medium body and soft carbonation. Alright cask malty action.

thewolf (12081) - Kolding, DENMARK - JUL 31, 2009
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.

Rune (11123) - Tromsø, NORWAY - DEC 11, 2008
Two half pint, cask served at the right drinking temperature at Cloister Bar in Edinburgh early on a quiet Sunday afternoon. Clear, deep mahogany body with a few patches on the top. Dry malty aroma. Dark fruits flavour accomplished by sweet malts. Mid dry in the mouth, with just one bitter note, or perhaps two [26.10.2008].
