Perhaps herok and howels single malt From cask. Pours clear and golden orange with a fully gone head. Dry malty and slight spiced aroma. Smooth and malty flavour with a mild breadish touch. Medium dry and slight bitter finish. Nice one.

Cask at Tennent’s Bar, Glasgow. An amber beer with a dense orange head. The aroma is sweet malty with light notes of caramel. The flavor is sweet malty with notes of caramel, leading to a slightly bitter finish. A somewhat boring beer.

[email protected] Colour is clear amber, the head is mediumsized and white. Leaves a lot of lace. Aroma is caramel, nectar, fruits and some wood. Flavour is wooden, fruity, hoppy. Mainly dark fruits in aftertaste. Wellbalanced and nice.

14th July 2008. Brown malty ale. A very mild hop finish. Not bitter. Drinkable.

chriso (21656) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - FEB 2, 2004
UPDATED: JAN 15, 2005 This seemed to me to be a pretty authentic version of s Scottish 80/- ale. Darkish brown colour. Creamy head. Soft malty nose and palate with low hop profile. Some toffee/caramel notes. Not really my favourite style, but I know a good rendition when I get one & mark accordingly. No doubt better from cask than from from nitrokeg, pasteurised bottle or (worse still) can, that most of the raters here have had to endure. Handpump, Head of Steam, Euston, London NW1.

Cask at the Ledger Building, Canary Wharf, 23/01/16 as ’Edinburgh Castle’. Golden with a moderately appointed off white covering that thins to spotting. Nose is straw, airy malts, faint citric rinds, caramel. Taste comprises pale malts, bread dough, light orange, grains. Medium bodied, moderate carbonation, semi drying close. Mediocre offering, lacks any real flavour.
