UPDATED: FEB 15, 2015 Slightly floral citrus aroma. Medium brown colour with decent white head. Taste is fruity with a light spice. Sweetish malt finish with a bit of floral. I could drink this all night. Very good.
New Rating: As above but on cask this time. Nothing new to add, just a really lovely ale. Stuartyboy (1754) - Ayr, SCOTLAND - MAR 8, 2013
On cask at malt cross ayr deep Amber slightly cloudy strong flavour of fruit and malt nicely ballanced with right amount of bitterness on the finish Scopey (15476) - Croydon, Greater London, ENGLAND - JUL 28, 2014
Cask at Halfway House. It pours deep red-brown with a thick white head. The nose is toasted brown bread, earth, leather, light caramel/brown sugar, fruit cake and dried fruit. The taste is smooth, toasty, some bitterness, light caramel, wood, brown bread, light spice and dried fruits with a dry finish. Medium body, fine carbonation and velvety mouth-feel. Nice balance and great drinkability. A great bitter. BeerCast_Rich (1906) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - MAY 29, 2012
[500ml bottle, Appellation Wines, Edinburgh] Slightly hazy copperish amber beer, cream-coloured head. Sweet chocolate nose from the dark crystal malt, touch of roasted wood. Flavourwise, it reminded me of a crumble that has been left in the oven a bit too long – slightly scorched brown sugar, rich fruit, and spices. Caramel sweetness in there too. A very nice beer  Nisse666 (7789) - Göteborg, SWEDEN - DEC 24, 2009

UPDATED: MAY 9, 2012 I can’t believe my previous rating - must have been in an incredibly negative mood or mis-typed. Anyway, this time, lovely chocolate biscuit note on the nose, which is almost as pronounced on the taste. Palate medium to rich for such a session strength beer and a clean finish. Overall, lovely bitter.

50cl Bottle. It pours an amber ale with nice lace and good head retention. The nose is floral and sweet (perhaps honey), eventually giving way to gentle malt. The taste is of more honey and malt and with astringent bitterness on the finish. The palate is typical for a medium-bodied session ale but balanced all the same. Overall, this is a step up from the wishy-washy session ales of yester-year, but I really do prefer their other beers. Cunningham (8282) - Halden, NORWAY - JUN 15, 2013
