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.

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.
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.
