Cask; Regular. Sold as Toby’s IPA at the Toby Jug in Glasgow.
A refreshing drink made with Maris Otter malted barley and Clyde Valley hops.
It is a light coloured IPA making it an especially pleasant session ale which captures the pedigree of the famous draught horses still to be seen around the Strathaven area.

Cask at Glenrothes BF 08. Orangey chestnut with no head. Nose is hoppy solid, some maltiness, biscuit. Mouth is fruity, brambley, hoppy grass. Lasting fruity hop character. Quite alright actually.

Bottle, Strathaven Hotel, Scotland. Poured muddy amber with thin white head. Grassy/hoppy aroma. Somewhat bitter finish. Wanted to like this, but fell a little short for me. Would like to try cask.

cask blackfriars new years eve- cheers tom for this one!! ! extremely drinkable ipa, very sweet though, hops played second fiddle to the sweet and somewhat extreme malty character of this ale. still, quite good. cider accents in finish.

mountainforest (131) - Mississippi, USA - DEC 15, 2007
On tap at Wetherspoon in New Town Edinburgh (under 2 pounds stirling). This beverage isn;t bad, nor great but better than average. Having been brewed in a 17th century building on the banks of the river Avon does not hurt this ale one bit. Rather a light (in the Scottish sense) summer beer.

Gr0ve (2177) - Oslo, NORWAY - OCT 12, 2006
1/2 pint cask, Abbotsford, Edinburgh. Bright golden colour with a small coarse white head. Glass is full of bubbles, so there seems to be quite a bit of carbonation in the beer. Nose is restrained, but there are some citrusy hops in the background. A more malty crisp hop aroma is more evident after a little while. Very flat, but smooth mouthfeel and a slight oily texture. Beer is served quite warm. Finishes with a light bitterness.

[cask at JDW] Clear, ruddy brown colour, minimal head. Hoppy aroma of grass with some sugared plummy fruit. moderate body, sweet, dry finish.
