2014-07-09. Ruby tinged dark brown body nice beige head and lace. 3+ Aroma is pleasantly malty, some toasty malt and caramel accents, whisper of oatcakes? Flavour is mildly malty throughout, lightly bitter, muted fruity notes. Relatively mild overall. 6++ Average bodied palate, soft carbonation feels just a touch thin for the beer. Cask at Thomsons Bar, Edinburgh

1.7 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 6/20
Bottle from Dunnottar Wines. It pours deep amber-brown with a medium off-white head. The nose is earth, dirt, toast cocoa and over-ripe fruit. The taste is watery, dirt, wood, leather, mouldiness, toast and some astringency with a very dry finish. Light body and moderate carbonation. Body is too thin. Watery and absent of flavour. Not good.

2.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 6/20
500 ml bottle. Amber body with a small tan head. Aroma has light caramel malt, wood and cellar notes. Flavor has sweet malt, low bitterness, hint of caramel and feels flat and dead. Quite plain and boring with a slightly unpleasant aftertaste.
