COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Cask; Regular.
NOTE: This is NOT the same beer as the version of Flying Scotsman previously available as a Spring seasonal.
Launched in July 2011, Flying Scotsman is a new addition to our permanent range of beers. A full-flavoured ruby beer, profoundly malty in aroma and flavours but balanced with a raisiny spiciness and toasty dryness. Distinctive fresh, slightly citrus tang with a rich finish.

Half pint, keg, Monte Bar. Pours medium chestnut brown with a thin foam subsiding. Scent is light brown sugar and some notes of chestnut? Bitters yeast I think. Taste is dense chestnut properties. Finish is smooth. Very good.
