ianwelby (1326) - SCOTLAND - MAY 25, 2013
Dark beer with a malt scent. Both malt and hop in the flavour and the finish is similar. Not as much body as I might have liked.

simonblaine (576) - Alberta, CANADA - MAY 14, 2013
Pours auburn with creamy head. Aroma of citrus peel and fruit. Taste is quite hoppy, but with a thinner taste than I expected. A good beer from Fyne Ales.

Svesse (8453) - Hsselby, SWEDEN - MAY 8, 2013
(Cask at Craft Beer Co Islington, London, 26 Apr 2013) Ruby red colour with foamy, beige head. Malty, fruity nose with caramel, red fruit and a touch of black-currant. Malty, fruity taste with notes of red fruit, caramel, black-currant and a gentle, spicy bitterness in the finish. Medium body, with a certain malt sweetness. Well balanced and quite nice.

prawlie (1577) - East Yorkshire, ENGLAND - MAY 8, 2013
Pint at York Tap. Dark brown, with a good creamy head. Smooth, lightly hopped dark ale, subtle. Goes down very well. Very light chocolate malt aroma, faint. Pretty good. Dry hop finish.

Pith (160) - New York, USA - APR 28, 2013
UPDATED: APR 29, 2013 Pours a rich mahogany with ample foamy tan head that lingers. Aroma- bitter, slight caramel. Taste is sweet start, middle of berries (cherry?) into wood-tasting hops which morph into a dry spiciness with caramel and herbs. Bitter dry finish with hints of wood. Very complex and interesting. Great Scottish ale. Needs to be paired with food (pot pie?) to relieve the bitterness between sips.

PaulW (105) - Southampton, Hampshire, ENGLAND - MAR 8, 2013
Says mild, but this also has the dryness of a stout. Pours deep brown/red, with lots of carbonation. Aroma I get is something like bitter chocolate orange. The palate is drying, with a real bitter edge. The hops give a citrus edge. Nice, but needs snacks with it to get the tastebuds going between sips!

500ml bottle from The Real Ale Warehouse, drunk today. I first tried this on cask at the Tigh an Truish Inn, on the Isle of Seil, a few years ago, but have only just got around to rating it. Clear, dark mahogany. Pours good, creamy, light brown head, with fine bubbles, lasting very well. Light carbonation. Aroma - Spicy, sweet toffeeish malt and satisfying, intensely berryish, tangy hops, with some warm, herbiness and a bit metallic. Taste - Mid dry. Intense herby, berry flavoured hops; almost slightly sour medicinal herby taste, which balances out well with the slightly sweet, toffeeish, dark malts and complements the dry finish well. Some slight cola spice & fruit sweetness. Dry, mid-bitter finish, with some slight lingering, pleasant herby & berry fruit hop flavours. A touch of metallic aftertaste too, though. Mid body for the style, bit creamy, bit astringent. A distinctive dark ale, with warm, satisfying flavours and a refreshing, crisp finish. Still good, but its definitely much better on cask, in an old Inn, on a tiny, rocky Scottish island that sticks out into the Atlantic.

KansaiBeerLvrs (5040) - Kyoto, JAPAN - FEB 28, 2013
Bottle from CBB. It poured a wonderful light amber red with a thick tan head of foam. It is VERY easy to drink with a malty aroma, sweet taste and a smooth dry mildly bitter finish. Its a great session beer and a nice beer for Japanese ladies-sweet, easy to drink and different from a boring bland lager!

Gerbeer (3561) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - JAN 28, 2013
500 ml bottle. Pours a dark mahogany with full head. Aromas of toffee, golden raisins, and roasted malts. Flavors of malts, toast, light fruitiness, and hops. Tasty for a mild.
