Tasted this in the Last Post, Paisley (JDW) on the 6th March 2014. Cask, handpump dispense. Clear pale amber in colour with a thin white head. Slight note of malt, subtle in the short grain aroma. Thin, resiny mouthfeel and good lacing throughout. Pale malt gives a weak digestive biscuit base with hints of soft, overipe gooseberry fruit. Dry hop resins give a dusty pleasant floral flavour to the short bitter aftertaste. The finish is slightly malty with an oak cask dryness coming through in the palate. A decent enough session ale and it reminded me of the old Maclays 70/ in style and flavour.

Mid gold, loose head. Light fruity aroma, some toffee maybe. Quite stingy hop resin bitterness. Aroma becomes sweeter over time, but in the palate it’s stingier. Hops sticky. Some mushroominess later. Raw and cereally too.

Cask at Archibal Simpson. Poured a clear amber with a small white head. Aroma of soft caramel malt. Medium body, berry fruit and some bitterness.

mr_h (5643) - Ayr, SCOTLAND - NOV 28, 2012
Cask by handpump at State Bar, Glasgow - clear amber brown, creamy white head, sweet malty aroma, malty and hoppy flavour, dominated by the hops, lasting bitter aftertaste

stravale (3078) - Co. Westmeath, IRELAND - NOV 20, 2012
Cask @ Bandstand Bar, Nairn 191112
Copper amber, clear, thin frothy white head with some lacing
Aroma - light caramel malts, some soft toasted malts, hint of soft dark fruits
Taste - soft toasted malts, bitter English hops, soft fruity caramel malts, digestive biscuit malts, slight smokiness - most of the flavour is in the finish so I’m including that too - actually the more you have the flavour grows on you (need a full pint to taste this) - it becomes a fairly strongly flavoured traditional bitter
Palate - light body. Finish is considerably dry with bitter hops and biscuity toasted malts
Overall - No idea why this is a winter beer, it’s quite a decent traditional English session bitter

UPDATED: MAR 10, 2011 Cask @ The Half Way House, Edinburgh. Caramel malt aroma. Amber brown colour. Smooth, grassy toffee flavour with citrus aftertaste. Interesting & quite good.

[cask at Cloisters, Edinburgh] Copper colour ale that looks like a pint of bitter rather than a winter warmer – tastes like one as well. Biscuity malt, a decent amount of hops to give a bitterness. Not really a winter beer, but as a decent session bitter it does the job, although nothing more [17122010]

On gravity at the Portcullis, Clifton, Bristol 11/12/10. Amber coloured with a slight, off-white head. Sweetish aroma of biscuity malts with a touch of citrus. Flavour had more of the same with a decent, bitter finish. Drinkable.

[email protected] Beer Festival 2009. Amber coloued beer with a lightly hopped aroma and a gently bitter and hopped flavour. Overall a nice strongly hopped beer.
