Red-amber. Smokey and very roasty nose. Sweet and malty, clean with salty finish. A medium bodied ale with very Scottish feeling.

madmitch76 (14513) - , Essex, ENGLAND - NOV 15, 2009
22nd June 2008. Loses it’s identity with a mild uninteresting malty start followed by flimsy watery hops. Not well joined up at all.

Malt and green apple aroma. The flavour has some of the same characteristics, with a good bitterness. Rather one-dimensional.
