Independence is a classic, full bodied and malty beer with subtle hints of mixed fruits and punches of spice. A perfect balance of Pilgrim and Saaz hops delivers a high quality, nicely rounded ale, with earthy and slightly spicy notes.

Hazy amber beer with a sweet initial flavour and a dry, tangy finish. Quite refreshing.

Stuu666 (15301) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - NOV 12, 2014
Cask - various. Pours dark amber, nose is nutty, toffee, taste is sweet toffee, fruity.

Iznogud (4730) - CROATIA - NOV 5, 2014
Cask at the Blackfriars, Glasgow. Pours copper with an off-white head. Roasted caramel aroma. Toffee, some fruits, light hoppy.

On cask at JDW, Galashiels - Light copper body with a slight white head and lacing. Slightly malty in the nose but pretty bland otherwise. Nutty flavour with plenty of malt. Nothing special, but nothing offensive either.

jd543 (428) - SCOTLAND - JUL 28, 2013
Amber colour with a thin off-white head. Malty and light spices on the nose. Taste is light sweet and bitter. OK, not that inspiring.

Weefannybaws (130) - Barrhead, SCOTLAND - JUL 13, 2013
Pint in Blackfriars. Dark, golden on the eye, with light head. Slight malty nose. Spicy, malt taste. Perfect accompaniment to crisps and nuts.

mr_h (6072) - Ayr, SCOTLAND - JUN 1, 2013
Cask by handpump at Blackfriars, Glasgow - clear deep golden, thin creamy off-white head, caramel malty aroma, excellent lacing, creamy texture, sweet malty, hint of apple, refreshing drink

Imaena (2359) - Maputo, MOZAMBIQUE - MAY 10, 2013
Cask: This is a pretty average bitter with a nice sessionable ABV. Nothing special but not bad either.

stravale (3150) - Co. Westmeath, IRELAND - JUN 28, 2012
Cask @ Golden Rule, Edinburgh
Dark golden amber, creamy white head, some lacing.
Aroma of fruity sweet caramel malts, not much on the nose
Taste - sweet caramel malts, honey, light fruits, some herbal notes, vague hint of almond? (!)
Palate - soft carb. medium body, oily, dryish. Some biscuit in the finish.
Overall - Slightly unusual flavour - one of their better beers.

AshtonMcCobb (7047) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - APR 27, 2012
In tap at the Queen’s Arms. Pours dark amber with a proportionate head. Nose of raisins, apricots with the toffee and expected biscuit crunch at the end. Taste of more apricots and toffee. Palate medium with a fairly balanced finish. Overall, liked it enough to take another.
