Draft, Hilton Strathclyde, Scotland. Medium reddish amber. Very faint aroma, some caramel sweetness. Very light flavour, again some caramel, slight hint of hops but very light. Poor man Boddingtons. Which is not saying much.

2.1 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 7/20
Draught at Melfort. Pours a dark amber with a small head and some bubbles. The nose has toffee and malt. The taste has more malt, more toffee and then an astringent malt note on the end. The palate is light to medium in body and structure and texture but with an astringent malt finish. Overall, I won’t be having another.
