tombyars (1602) - Saltcoats, SCOTLAND - OCT 11, 2011
Tasted this in The Esquire House, Glasgow (JDW) in August 2010. Cask, handpump dispense. Crystal clear dark copper in colour with a tight creamy buff white head. Green apple fruit in the short aroma with a whiff of hydrogen sulphide. Nice creamy mouthfeel and good lacing. Malty overtones from the pale malt base with crystal malt evident. Digestive biscuit malt with dry raisin fruit. Metallic note of hop resins present in the aftertaste but short in intensity. Robust malty finish with caramel notes. An excellent session ale and well recommended.

Bottled (from Estate Wine, Holstebro). Amber colour, small off-white head. Aroma is toffee, caramel malts, fruits, wood and some mild floral notes as well. Flavour is quite much the same, but not that much toffeeish notes at all.
