Pours more of a light brown (though I do love the brewers ’ cherry, sunburst guitar description), this ’red’ ale is a seriously tasty drop. Strong aroma of caramel or toffee, leaving a medium sweet taste. Highly recommended Proving that, despite serious competition from other Scottish brewers Williams Bros are producing some of the best beers(Joker, Fraoch, Kelpie to name a few) in the country. Great to see more and more of these in several Glasgow pubs too, these guys are doing some serious brewing!

jaghana (3725) - Strasbourg (France), FRANCE - FEB 3, 2012
Bottle 50cl, a clear amber-red beer with good creamy head and good lacing. Nose is very hopy like with caramel and honey notes. Aroma hand an amazing grassy and floral bitterness with a honey body and caramel notes, very pleasant. Red fruit notes too with metallic hints, nice.
