500ml bottle from the Scottish Real Ale Shop. States bottle conditioned, but pours clear as a bell with no sediment in the bottle. Pours clear brown, no head. Aromas are light chocolate and nuts, some caramel. Taste is more of the same, but thin and watery. Ah - TSA, that explains that then.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
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.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
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.

2.2 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 9/20
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.
