jamestulloch (2209) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - MAR 23, 2013
Aroma: Toffee, biscuit and earth. Subdued red fruit notes.

Appearance: Clear ruby body with a medium off-white head that holds well. No visible carbonation. Excellent carbonation.

Taste: Subtle flavour but quite complex. Bitter earth, sweet malt, cherry and plum trying to come to the fore.

Palate: Thin to medium body with a very oily mouthfeel. Light carbonation prickle.

Overall: A decent Bitter. I’d have this again.
