Cask at the Pot Still, Glasgow. Pretty average really. Short review as did not take notes at the time.
Dark amber. Mellow, malty, soft body, hint of toffee but generally easy-drinking. They do this every year, I guess.

August 21, 2013 - hand-pull cask at the Edgar Wallace. Lovely refractive deep burnt copper with a small frothy beige head. Aroma of light cocoa powder, dry floral bitterness and slightly fruity. Taste follows but a tad harsh - more slightly tart fruit, not much but some alcohol presence. Light body, astringent, mildly carbonated - quickish finish with a surprisingly sweet floral aftertaste. Ehh.

Cask. Dark mahogany red ale with a good cream head. Nose of dark stewed fruits. Plum, strawberry and a bit of peach. Taste is stewed plum and pear with a solid sweet malt. Decent dark ale but nothing Mindblowing. BeerCast_Rich (1906) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - SEP 2, 2011
[cask at Teviot Union Building, Edinburgh] The 2009 Edinburgh Festival beer, brewed by the Caley for the month of August while the festivities are ongoing. Dark, malty Scottish ale obviously brewed to be like an old-time heavy. Only slightly hoppy on the nose, it’s a lovely burnt sugar colour and goes down really easily. Dark and with a bit of molasses sweetness, I doubt everybody will like it, but I did. I’m guessing because there wasn’t much trademark diacetyl in evidence from the pint I had  chriso (21656) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - JAN 28, 2010
Cask (handpump) at the Museum Tavern, Bloomsbury, August 2009. Could someone please have a word with the brewers at Caledonian and tell them that making beers laden with diacetyl is not a good thing. And it is not just the odd beer, it is pretty much every Caledonian beers I’ve tried over last couple of years. The aroma reeks of the stuff. Creamy caramel and butterscotch toffee dominate the palate. Ugh. Not my thing at all. Looked good enough though.
