Can find it everywhere in Edinburgh - harder in Glasgow - but for a common ale it’s nae bad. gowdy (1115) - Erskine, SCOTLAND - FEB 7, 2013
Pint at the Horse Shoe in Glasgow. Minimal white head. An amber hue. Not gassy. A nice one. Sigmund (7535) - Tau, NORWAY - MAY 7, 2005
Smooth and pleasant cask beer. Nice malty aroma. I’m ready for another one any time. dogbomb (1217) - ENGLAND - MAY 31, 2013
Cask. Dark rusty brown with a thick offwhite head. Smells of raisins and malt. Tastes of raisins, plums, pear and sweet malts. Finish is muted, but fruity. Very nice. DonMagi (5593) - bantervile, Bedfordshire, ENGLAND - MAY 9, 2005
Maybe bias as i tasted it in the brewary on a cellar training course where it tasted beautiful.
The usual cali hoppiness, and fresh seriously seriously fresh, There is a slight burnt malt in there and some fruit aswell but mainly hops.
In my work(wetherspoons - kirky puffer) it doesnt taste as good therefore the rating is not as high as i would, but at the brewary itself, was probably the best pint of cast ale iv ever had.

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) Rogermoore (34) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - JUN 4, 2007
I love this beer. Comforting. Malty to the end. A traditional scottish beer. Yum. I caould drink you all day long. I also like the IPA Fin (10542) - Merton, Oxfordshire, England, Oxfordshire, ENGLAND - DEC 29, 2008
Cask at The Bell, Banbury, Oxon 28-12-08. Had three pints of this and found it most enjoyable. Poured mid brown but with good clarity and with a nice white head. Good full on fruity malty beer, little bit of soft fudge and toffee and a nice bitterness. Really decent and in great nick.

[Cask at The Castle, Castleton] Deep, inviting brown colour with a thick creamy head. Sweet malt and toffee dominate, with fruit vinous flavours swirling around the edges. Sweet, yet dry and sour at the same time. Good stuff! zimbo (961) - SCOTLAND - DEC 2, 2012
Clear dark copper brown with a rich head which goes the distance. Truly smooth and slightly fat and rather ricj on the tongue. Fair amount of treacly malt with elements of pear. Vinous, morish with some richness. ends that way too. Of all the older cask Scottish beers this one has changed the least over the years.
