3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle. Pours light brown, with a tan head that disappates quickly. Medium bodied, medium to high carbonation, very fine bubbles. Aroma is strong of toffee, fruit & bread. Taste is sweet, of caramel and fruits. Palate is pleasant, not dry or bitter, though a bit high in carbonation. Finish is malty sweet, chewy, then slightly drys. A bit high in carbonation, but a very nice drink.

2.5 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 11/20
Orange with a thin off-white head. Quite malty aroma, toffee, raisin. Taste is too sweet, not that well balanced. Thin texture, light carbonation. Not that great, to be honest.

500ml bottle at home. Pours medium brown with a thin, short-lived head. Aromas of raisin, toffee and caramel with malt. Touch of hops comes through later. Taste is too sweet, not enough balance. Bit sticky on the texture. Long, sweet finish. OK.

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.
