[Cask at GBBF, 2004] Iím not 100% sure Iím rating the right beer, since the info I can gather is a little contradictory. I had a beer that according to the programme is named City of Stirling with an ABV of 4.1% - which makes me believe, that it is a different beer than this, but at the same time the beer is an 80/- Scottish Ale - which makes me think, that this was the beer I had. I canít find any definate evidence for either case on the Internet A brown beer with a small brown head. The aroma is very light with notes of caramel. The flavor is sweet, very malty and with notes of brown sugar.

Bottled, pasteurised. Brown amber with short head. Smooth malty beer with no obvoius faults, just a little boring really. Nothing outstanding, some toffee, some powdery caramel a lttle fruit but nothing to cling on to.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
I must say I was quite impressed with this, even though it is in a style, and a presentation (pasteurised bottle) that I donít often enjoy. Deepish chestnut colour. Toffee and malt aroma. Fruit and more toffee in the flavour, but more hop and bitterness than is normal in a Scottish ale which, in my view, can only improve it. Finishes dry and clean. Nicely brewed and nicely balanced. I would like to try this on cask. A good effort from a new brewery (although it seems to have some connection with Bridge of Allan). 500 ml bottle from Tesco. BBE 20 July 2005.
