jercraigs (7812) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - JUL 17, 2014
2014-06-29. Crisp dark amber body with modest beige head. Aroma is dusty malt with caramel. Subtle notes of toffee/treacle/butterscotch. Flavour is malt forward, lightly tangy fruit and moderate hoppy bitterness throughout. Tangy quality lingers in the finish. Average bodied palate, modest carbonation. Decent. Bottle at Lade Inn, Callander

On cask at the Lade Inn. Appearance - amber toffee with a nice head. Nose - toffee and honeycomb maybe some chocolate. A bit Crunchie Bar. Taste - more toffee and some biscuits with just a hint of chocolate. Palate - medium bodied with a creamy texture and a fairly good finish. Overall - good Bitter.

gunnar (5297) - Sandnes, NORWAY - JUL 17, 2013
Cask at The Lade Inn, Callander. Pours clear amber with a small off-white head.Aroma of sweet marmelade and yeast. Taste is sweet malty, weak fruity, unbalanced in my opinion.

pivoveskotsku (201) - SCOTLAND - SEP 7, 2012
Ruby colour, white head. Aroma is very smoky, verging on BBQ. Taste is more of the same, peaty and some apple. Not bad, but again not great. It was interesting enough, though.

Nilz (385) - Glasgow, SCOTLAND - JUL 17, 2012
Glass at the Lade Inn. An almost clear red to ruby coloured ale with a fine white head & minimal lacing. For me not a lot of aroma some malt. Taste of some malt and smokiness in there with some bitter to the finish. Simple rather than complex kind of flavouring and smooth thin oiliness on the palate.

Bottle from The Scottish Real Ale Shop. Dry grassy caramel malt aroma. Medium dark brown colour, reasonable head. Peaty caramel malt flavour. A bit watery. Apple aftertaste.

tombyars (1362) - Saltcoats, SCOTLAND - MAR 11, 2012
Sampled this in the Lade Inn, August 2007. Cask, handpump dispense. Red amber in colour with a tight creamy white head. Slight malt in the aroma with thinner mouthfeel than the weaker WayLade? Pale malt complexes gave slight malt in the mouth, also sweeter tasting than WayLade with strong honeydew melon fruit notes. Slight dusty hop prickle noted in the aftertaste. Sweetness continues through into the finish with a vague hint of hop flowers as well. Not as complex in flavour as WayLade and a tad disappointing because of it. Expected a bit better in body, mouthfeel and flavour from this 4.5% malty number.

Flavour is moderate sweet and light bitter with a average to long duration, malt extract. Body is medium, texture is oily, carbonation is soft to flat. [20111001]
