Nuffield (3657) - Roseville, Minnesota, USA - JUL 21, 2012
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)

Benjii (3049) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - JUN 29, 2012
On cask at the Scottish Real Ale Festival, 2012. Pours a dark golden colour with a fair white head. Aroma of caramel, grassy hops, yeast and alcohol. Similar flavours with mild carbonation and a foamy mouth-feel.

tombyars (1328) - Saltcoats, SCOTLAND - NOV 21, 2011
Tasted this at the Troon Beer Festival in October 2011. Cask, handpump dispense. Clear copper in colour with a thin white head. Fresh green apple in the short aroma. Robust creamy mouthfeel and good lacing. Pale malts give a fiery ginger bread base with sweet hints of golden syrup and brown sugar. Spicy hop resins impart a slightly dry bitter aftertaste. Finish is robust and warming with a slight sherry and oak cask notes. An excellent session bitter which is full flavoured and tastes far stronger than the og suggests.

Cask @ 12th Ayrshire Real Ale Festival, Troon 2011. Light brown colour, off-white head. Nose is caramel malts, bit of fruits and candy sugar. Flavour is light caramel malts, citrus, fruits. Slightly bitter finish. Not on par with their other beers.

larsga (6120) - Oslo, NORWAY - OCT 17, 2009
Medium white creamy head. Faintly hazy coppery body. Fruity wooden aroma with vinegary notes. Dry-sweet perfumy caramelly fruit taste with wooden roasty notes. Mild, smooth mouthfeel. Mid-bodied. Dry-acidic fruity caramel aftertaste with wooden notes. Not bad. (0.25l cask, Guildford Arms, Edinburgh.)
