2.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Cask at Cloisters. It pours clear deep amber-brown with a medium yellow-white head. The nose is toasted brown, grainy, mild caramel, earth and wood. The taste is smooth, toasted grain, brown, wood and leather with a dry finish. Medium body and fine carbonation. Simple malt-driven job. OK, but probably their poorest offering.

2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
A very simple beer: malty, caramel in front, middle and finish, with a smooth palate and a classic rich golden color. Fine; not fancy or flashy, and it didn’t really appeal much to me. (cask at Scottish Real Ale Festival, Edinburgh, June 2012)
