First tasted this at the Printing Room, Glasgow in September 1997. Cask, handpump dispense. Clear copper red in colour with a thin white head. Sweet toffee note in the short aroma. Thin but creamy mouthfeel and good lacing. Pale malt gives a digestive biscuit note with creamy toffee flavours. Good prickle of dusty hops present in the resiny aftertaste. Malt returns in the sweet finish with vinous oak cask notes. A decent session bitter.
