Royal Circle, Edinburgh. Bronze-coloured with a steady offwhite head. Fruity toffee aroma. Bitter toffee and raisins, quite well-balanced, dry mouthfeel. Lightish body. Easily drinkable classic.
Cask at C4, Odense: Clear amber with off white head. Low carb - flat. Malty caramel with a watery body, even for a cask ale. Easy sweet flavor before it ends with a slight dry hoppy finish! joergen (29007) - Frederiksberg, DENMARK - MAR 3, 2007
Cask at Charlies.

Any first impressions?Svesse (8752) - Hässelby, SWEDEN - NOV 30, 2006
-A veil of foam dissipates into the peachy ochre.
-Caramel maltiness and underlying toastiness announce an all-malt affair.
-The same fruity caramel is found once tasted, this time emboldened by some vanilla.
-The lean maltiness and very low carbonation make a soothing mouthfeel.
What if you dig deeper?
-The sweet, relaxed finish appears to be hopless.
-This is ridiculously easy to drink, rendering water to uselessness.
-A simple and effective scottish ale (or sweet bitter, if you prefer) for those days when you don’t care about hops anymore.
On cask at The Phoenix Inn, Inverness.
(Cask at Adam & Eve, Westminster, London, 24 Nov) Dark brown/mahogany colour with hints of amber, frothy off-white head. Malty, nutty nose with caramel and a fresh spicy hop aroma. Malty, nutty taste with hints of berries, chocolate and a balanced spicy hoppiness in the finish. Tasty, but slightly thin.

Deep copper colour with a thin white head. Malty, sweet aroma with a vague chocolate note balanced with a light hoppyness. Malty and fruity flavor with a light bitter hoppy finish. RoyceH (1200) - Hesperange, LUXEMBOURG - SEP 10, 2006
Cask, The Criterion, St Andrews. Dark chestnut, thin white head. Slightly cloudy, malty, creamy and chocolatey, sweet aroma. Flavour is very fruity, hops and malt. Sweet finish, with a taste of cigarette ash. Slightly dry. Don’t think this was particularly well kept, but still a nice ale. fonefan (50751) - VestJylland, DENMARK - AUG 15, 2006
Cask @ Moulin Inn, Moulin. Dark chestnut colour. Very creamy mouthfeel, but a little watery. Mild malt flavour. bluevegie (3073) - Perth, AUSTRALIA - JUN 19, 2006
Dark amber almost tawny body, at first it tasted good but then as you got into it it was a bit thin, caramel and butter notes and not much else.

Cask. Full bodied nutbrown colour. Limited white creamy head. The beer is very creamy and full bodied.. Aroma is spicy and a weah hops smell seeps through. Taste is bitter from hops with a citric edge. Taste ends on a high note of spices (mostly coriander)
