Keg tap from the Brewery Tap, Castle Douglas. Light brown/amber with a tiny wisplet of white head. Light scent of malt, berries. Taste is standard but enjoyable: a simple bittersweet taste which leads to a surprisingly dry finish. Light body. Not the greatest of beers, but thus would be a welcome alternative to bland Scottish pub bitters.

2.9 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottle BBE: 14/6/15. Well-chilled. Crystal clear amber body with a quickly-diminishing, creamy white head. Low intensity aroma with some biscuity character and gentle, sprucey hop notes. Very light sweetness and a gentle bitterness - overall a well-balanced taste. Light body, thin texture, low-to-medium carbonation and a short, bitter finish. A pleasant enough, standard drinkable bitter. Rather bland and unexceptional.

Bottle. At first this seems like a fairly standard bitter but there is an unusual smoky element that is actually fairly pleseant.

UPDATED: FEB 23, 2014 Bottled ale - just past its best before date, so may impact on quality. Amber coloured. Slightly bitter taste. Drinkable but not memorable.

Pint. Pours slightly hazy amber. Very weak aroma of cereal and malts. Taste is a little too watery but it is nice. Hops, caramel and a bitter finish

2.8 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Bottle from Aldi 020112
Amber, clear, frothy white head, some lacing
Aroma - Soft sweet golden caramel malts, soft cereals
Taste - Soft caramel malts, hint of toasted malts, touch of unusual smokiness - bit farmyardy, vague hint of citrus, some bitter hop in background, odd flavour but it’s drinkable
Palate - soft carb, medium body, quite oily. Sweetish malts and light bitter hop palate. Finish - fairly dry. bitter lingering dryness, palate not that clean.
Overall - Very average beer, some unusual smokiness in the sweetish malts that makes it stand out a bit though, hop presence is just some soft bitterness. Reasonable.
