UPDATED: SEP 17, 2014 Bottle 500ml from Cross Stobs Bottle Stop, Barrhead. This really is an excellent bottled ale. Caramel with a bitter finish. Slightly more carbonation than I like, extremely enjoyable. Doesnt disappoint on cask, Hopinn, Newcasle under Lyme on 15/9/14.

Martin243 (1063) - Tyne & Wear, ENGLAND - JAN 7, 2017
500 ml bottle served cold. Toffee and wet woodland walk aroma. Amber with an off white head that faded to a thin skim. Sultanas, red berries and toffee flavour. Sweetish, medium bodied, sticky texture, soft carbonation, gentle finish. The kind of ruminative beer probably best enjoyed quietly, in a subdued, relaxed pub off the beaten track. Autumnal springs to mind.

GSAP (717) - NETHERLANDS - DEC 17, 2016
Snoeppot ruiken, sinaasappel met snoep en wat kruid proeven, beetje winters, maar wat week, wel fris. 500ml fles, koperkleurig met net van het witte kraag.

shoestring (371) - larkhall, SCOTLAND - SEP 3, 2016
Served too cold initially. Nice looker copper and off white head. Caramel starting to come through as warming. Slight citrus edge with a slight metallic twang. May just be too cold just now . Flavours warmed as the beer itself ce to room temp

Pint Glen Nevis Bar. Average beer, quite malty, not overly hopped. Served a bit too cold in this establishment imo.

overtheline (118) - Inverness, SCOTLAND - MAY 28, 2016
500ml bottle, pours a very clear copper with off white cap. Nose is pretty weird, very fruit forward, almost peach like with underlying malt aromas. Taste is really fresh, fruity notes give way to caramel maltiness which finishes ashy and slightly bitter.low carbonation with light to medium body. Pretty tasty stuff.

LazyPyro (737) - Cheltenham, Gloucestershire, ENGLAND - APR 6, 2016
500ml bottle. Amber colour with a good off-white head. Aroma is fruity malts and hops, caramel, toffee. Taste follows suit with sweet fruity malt and hop flavours, citrus, caramel, toffee. Mildly bitter finish. Smooth. One of my favourite bitters so far.
