A traditional Scottish ale brewed with an emphasis on the malt characteristics. Lightly hopped, as is true to this style of beer, with fruity malt aromas and a toffeeish mouth feel.

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 isn’t as clean as it should be. It’s a malty bitter, with some good and poor malt flavours at the same time.

bottle @ Jungle Jim’s / 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%. I’d have it again.

500ml bottle. 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.

Bottle. Light peat aroma. Color is dark, but with light head, which doesn’t last. Taste is enjoyable, fresh, smoky with roasted malt notes. A very good embassador of scottish ale.

MrJamesMcEwan (110) - SCOTLAND - NOV 6, 2014
Bottle. Pours light brown, with a tan head that disappates slowly. Medium bodied, low carbonation, very fine bubbles. Aroma of malt, brown bread, copper & apricot. Taste is bittersweet malt of caramel and fruitbut a bit bland. Palate is enjoyable, soft and slightly creamy feel. Finish is soft, sweet, long and enjoyable. Taste is little bland but a very good palate and finish result in a pleasant drink.
