jfb (6360) - GERMANY - FEB 15, 2017
(cask) clear deep amber-ruby colour with a frothy off-white head. aroma of dark fruit and raisins, with a touch of bread dough and some lemon juce. flavour is mostly dark fruit and toasted malts, with a hint of bubble gum, straw and a light-bitter herbal-hoppy finish. medium-bodied with soft carbonation.

LED40 (118) - Aberdeen, SCOTLAND - NOV 20, 2015
500 ml bottle direct from the brewery. A faint aroma of mud and mold with a chestnut appearance and very thin head. The taste is relatively standard for the style, malt forward with caramel and hop bitterness. The body is relatively thin and not very carbonated. Overall, this is okay for style and it tastes better than it smells but nothing extraordinary.

niquillis (2752) - Stoke on Trent, Staffordshire, ENGLAND - JUL 26, 2015
Cask at Dalhousie Bar, Brechin. Pours caramel brown murk. Must have been on the tur, vinegary wee heavy.

Stuu666 (13649) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - OCT 16, 2014
Cask at SRAF 2012. Pours light brown, nose is soft toffee, light fruit, taste is similar.

MrJamesMcEwan (244) - SCOTLAND - MAY 2, 2014
UPDATED: MAY 5, 2014 Bottle. Pours cloudy reddy brown with a thick sized beige head that holds for a while. Full bodied, high carbonation. Aroma is malt, grass, with orange and a hint of spice. Taste is very malty, too orange & very dry poor bitter finish. Poor mouthfeel, high carbonation but disappates quickly in the glass. Dull & bad.

WeissGary (286) - Glasgow, SCOTLAND - DEC 10, 2013
Bottle. Decent enough cheap bitter, nothing exceptional, decent session beer.

Nilz (511) - Glasgow, SCOTLAND - NOV 23, 2013
500ml bottle from Aldi pours a clear deep dark ruby ale with slim white head. A malty aroma and a taste of mild bitterness, roast malts, and a little fruit. A little thin with a mild carbonation.

mighty_meadow (308) - Kilwinning, SCOTLAND - NOV 3, 2013
500ml bottle from Aldi, Irvine. Rating from memory, not the best I have ever tasted. pretty dull and uninspiring. Won’t rush out to buy again.

tombyars (1702) - Saltcoats, SCOTLAND - SEP 21, 2013
Tasted this at the Paisley Beer Festival in September 2013. Cask, handpump dispense. Opaque dark russet in colour with a thin off white head. Hint of weak plum brandy in the fruity aroma. Thin mouthfeel and good lacing. Mixed malts give a juicy fruit loaf base with sweet syrupy dates and raisins. Very sharp prickle of earthy hops evident in the short aftertaste. Finish is malty and vinous with plums, black cherry and oak cask flavours full in the mouth. Tasted like an Old Ale in style with Mansfield Old Baily coming to mind.

stravale (3078) - Co. Westmeath, IRELAND - FEB 22, 2013
Bottle from Aldi, Gorgie [180213]
Chestnut brown, clear, thin white head, minimal lacing. Aroma of brown malts, touch of hops, bit metallic. Taste of some roasted malts, bitter English hops, bit metallic, touch of fruit. Palate - soft carb, light to medium body. Finish - bit dry, twig hops, some metallic bitterness
Overall - Not a fan of this - very average
