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.

thewolf (11187) - 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.

imdownthepub (10325) - 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.

Rune (8066) - 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].

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.

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.)
