On tap @ McCowans. Pours amber with a decent head. The nose has toffee and a nice crunchy biscuit note. The taste has more of the same with the toffee biscuits quite nicely intermingled. The palate is light to medium bodied with a crunchy texture and a dry refreshing finish. Overall, a well made bitter.

Weatherspoons at Edinburgh airport. Typical airport beer served too cold. Golden copper bitter, tight head. No aroma to speak of (temp related?). Light taste, fresh hoppiness, a hint of sweetness and biscuity malt. What the GBG would call a session beer. Decent enough stuff.

[cask at the Guildford Arms, Edinburgh] Has a bit of everything, this one. Pours like an amber ale but the first thing on the nose is citrus hop. Malt follows, and this leads the taste before the hops come in on the finish. Tastes very similar to several of their other beers – like Copper Cascade mixed with Pentland IPA. A decent bitter, and drinkable stuff – even for rugby-haters like me…
