2.6 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
500ml bottle from Sainsbury. Attractive clear dark brown with very thin beige head. Some malt on the aroma. Sweetish malts, some crystal in here I guess then. Bit of milk choc. There is a little musitness that makes me think that the bottling isnít as clean as it should be. Itís a malty bitter, with some good and poor malt flavours at the same time.

3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Decent, but a little boring. Light brown pour with little foam. Aroma of malt with some caramel. Flavor is a little watery, but still smooth and malty. Nothing overtly wrong with this beer, just low abv and associated lightness all around.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Deep brown hazy beer with 1 finger off-white head, nice lasing. Aroma: a lot of caramel, honey, fruit esters (fig, dried plum, raisins). Taste: light sweet, light sour, light bitterness. Flavours of caramel, chocolate, a little bit of winy notes. Medium body, light but lively carbonation, pretty dry.
Overall: good, tasty beer, for me itís like mix of german bock and belgian dubbel.

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 13/20
500 ml bottle
Amber to copper colored beer with blonde persistent head with quite big bubbles, leaving lacing. Aroma has toffee, almonds, wood, bready maltiness and dried fruitiness. Flavor is woody, malty and toffeeish. Palate is quite thin and soft with light feel of sparkling. Finish has medium or milder bite of bitterness. Aftertaste is malty, toffeeish and woody with some dry hayish bitterness and some dried fruitiness. Very British, not bad for this style.

3.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Richish malty nose. Decent magnolia head. Deep brown hazy colour with some orange sparkle. Burnt caramel and a medium body with a sort of a red ale twist. Some sharp acidity and a light sour edge. Head thins over time but doesnít disappear leaving some long wispy lacing.
A bit stylistically confused by still quite decent.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
bottle @ Jungle Jimís / Eastgate OH --- Clear dark amber with a frothy beige head that stays at 1", broken curtain of lace. Taste is malt that includes a light sprinkle of spice, turning slightly bitter on the swallow, then adding toffee for a somewhat sweet finish. An interesting, light Scottish brew, lots to appreciate at only 4.2%. Iíd have it again.

Thin creamy off white head, nice little bit of lacing. Dark copper body. Nose is really malty, edges of burnt sugar. Flavour is dark fruits, creamy caramel and toffee finish. Light bitter aftertaste. Medium carbonation, good full mouthfeel. Cracking 80 shilling, a fine example.
