Cask conditioned - handpump - Out Of The Vaults Leicester. A mahogony coloured beer with an off white head. Lovely aroma of coffee, nuts and brown rich fruits. Nice malty taste with more coffee flavours. Very Scottish in its low hopping, but very tasty. oh6gdx (26487) - Vasa, FINLAND - JAN 7, 2007
Bottled. Brownish amber colour, mediumsized beige foamy head. Leaves lace. Aroma is malts, some chocolate and flowery hops. Flavour is roasted malts along with flowery hops. Some slight nutty hints. Overall very pleasant. AshtonMcCobb (6666) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - JUN 2, 2014
On cask at the White Lady.
Appearance - a cloudy amber much like dark honey. Nice head.
Nose - lovely caramel and biscuit note with chocolate too. It’s a Twix bar.
Taste - actually going into Highland Toffee bar.
Palate - medium bodied with a lovely creamy rich texture and a fairly balanced finish.
Overall - a lovely luscious Bitter. Lots of enjoyment out of this one. NotABeerFan (13) - GLASGOW, SCOTLAND - JUN 9, 2015
As soon as it came out the tap as pure foam I thought I made a huge mistake. I hate beers like this. But it was very nice. Apparently this is a bitter, but it’s not very bitter. It’s ruby in colour and has a very light taste, almost as flavourless as a cheap lager, but much nicer. Goes down very easy. gowdy (1115) - Erskine, SCOTLAND - JAN 1, 2014
Cask at the Fox in Houston. A deep brown colour. Quite some head. Not very bitter. Nice.

Beer number 21 in the Great Ayr/ Glasgow pub crawl. Cask at Blackfriars. Good ruby bronze colour, creamy head. Fruity, nutty, mildly smoky malt aroma. Finishes, fruity, earthy. Not many beers left in Scotland with this kind of peaty/smoky vibe going on. Good to see it from a micro. chriso (7557) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - SEP 11, 2005
Cask (handpump) at the Market Porter, London SE1. Deep rich reddish colour. A dark, malty brew with hints of chocolate and a smoky aroma. Not much in the way of hop presence, but with a smooth mouthfeel and plenty of character, this beer succeeds without the need for the bite that more hops would provide. Most definitely traditional Scottish in feel.

Cask at Cloisters. Pours a red - orange colour with a fair beige head. Aroma of sweet pumpkin, treacle, raisins and caramel. Nice fruity flavour with raisins, plums and treacle and a fair oatmeal and caramel malt backbone. A little oily mouth-feel and a long, sweet pumpkin linger. Little dry to finish. Nice. rauchbier (3899) - Isle Of Beer, Lincolnshire, ENGLAND - JUL 15, 2004
Bottle, from Fabeers in York. Amber bronze, thin but lasting off white head and low condition. Earthy and roasted in the nose with a good developing hoppiness, some touches of pepper and a little vanilla and fruity berries. Quite thin and dry in the mouth with the chalky roast barley and fruitiness dominating. Some caramel emerges in the finish along with a slight smoky 70/- maltiness.
