3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Tasted this in the Salt Cot, Saltcoats (JDW) in May 2013. Cask, handpump dispense. Crystal clear copper with a thin off white head. Distinct malty aroma with sweet toffee overtones. Thin but creamy mouthfeel and good lacing. Pale malt gives a robust maltloaf base with notes of creamy highland toffee and stewed prunes. Good smack of earthy flavoured hops in the short bitter aftertaste. Finish is chewy and malty with dry vinous oak cask notes but not too dry though. A decent session 80/ and recommended.

3.2 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
500ml bottle. Lovely reddish brown colour with an off white head. The aroma is sweet predominantly and this follows on the palate with a toffee/fudge like flavour. The sweetness is well balanced by bittering hops such that it doesnt overly dominate. A fine example of an 80/-.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Finally breeched the Aldi bought 500ml bottle: best before Jun 2013, it was shared with a friend on 15 Feb 2013 during a random tasting evening at home.
Mid-brown, bordering on amber in colour: a thin white head sat on each half-pint glass.
Malts first and foremost: sweet molasses taking over the smell and taste. Caramel and butterscotch notes make this one sweet beer. The hops canít hold the malty strengths and although this isnít sickly in any way: it certainly isnít a hoppy brew, nutty notes and hints of wood about, but mostly malts.
A little unbalanced: but I like sweet malty brews, so it was OK with me.

(bottle, 33cl) Clear, amber colour with a short and tanned foamy head. Buttery cara-malty aroma with slightly fruity hops in the background. Moderately sweet flavour, light to medium bodied with a modest carbonation. Cara-malt upfront with notes of butter and a tinge of apricots; moderately dry and a tad slim finish with cara-malt and delicately fruity hops. Easy-going Ale. 03.II.13
