Cask at Cloisters. Pours clear dark brown, thin bubbly white head. Aromas are mostly vinegar at first, resolving to fruit cake (maybe sour fruit cake?). Taste is more of the same, sadly. Didnít finish this, which is rare for me.

Bottle from the Scottish Real Ale shop. Appearance - amber red with a nice head. Nose - subtle toffee and slightly elusive biscuits. Taste - much more pronounced toffee and biscuits Palate - medium bodied with a creamy texture and a long dry finish. Overall - really enjoyable.

A dull as dishwater bitter. Itís drinkable but that is really they only thing I can think to say about it.

Nilz (378) - Glasgow, SCOTLAND - FEB 9, 2014
Darkish amber ale with a creamy if slim off-white head. Aroma minimal taste mild malt gentle bitter pleasant enough, My own preference might have been for a bit more prominent flavours though pleasant enough.

JohnRMurdoch (3239) - Glasgow, SCOTLAND - FEB 6, 2013
Hazy orange brown colour, big foamy head. Sour caramel malt aroma. Sweet oaty malt flavour. Bitter aftertaste. Fairly typical Sulwath beer. They need to improve the quality of their beer.

BlackHaddock (3598) - Shropshire, ENGLAND - AUG 5, 2012
500ml bottle, just out of date when opened on 4th Aug 2012. Lovely dark amber body with a thin tan coloured head on top. The nose and taste combined nicely: malty and yet hoppy too, pine, nuts and caramel vied for prominence with yeast and a mini-hop bittereness also in the mix. Well balanced and easy to drink, the 5% ABV being nicely hidden. Soft and smooth feel to it.

greenmanalishi (468) - Leicestershire, ENGLAND - APR 27, 2012
Pours a light brown with bready, earthy backing and treacle flavours. Dry finish.

Benjii (3049) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - MAR 15, 2012
On cask at the Standing Order. Pours a hazel colour with a thick white head. Aroma of yeast, caramel and toffee. Similar flavours with lingering yeast, chocolate and caramel. Moderate carbonation and a foamy mouth-feel.

Beershine (5218) - The Sunshine State, Florida, USA - SEP 26, 2010
Cask @ Standing order. Muddled rusty water color, with stable head. Boring aroma has bread and phenols. Strange! Has almost a fishy character. Weird, salty and bready with orange marmelade and ferrous/iron notes too...having said that itís not horrible, just should be better.
