LED40 (117) - Aberdeen, - JUL 18, 2012
500ml bottle. Notes of burnt almonds, coffee and toasted barley. Dark amber in colour with a one finger head leaving lacing on the glass. A good example of your typical esb - medium hops and medium body but this one is slightly thicker with a satisfying creamy body to it. Nothing great but fairly sessionable.

ansalon (3872) - Stockholm, SWEDEN, SWEDEN - MAY 26, 2017
Pours a deep amber with a medium frothy off white head. Aromas of caramel, toffee, rye bread, citrus. Taste is caramel and nutty with light bready notes. Mouthfeel is medium bodied with medium carbonation.

Bottle. Dark Brown in colour. Very Malty; sweet roasty malts, wheat, lots and lots of chocolate, caramel. Hoppy; spicy, slightly earthy, hops,. Nice malt/hop balance. Sweet roasty chocolaty malts meet spicy earthy hops. Dry roast malty finish. Very tasty. Liked this a lot. Nice beer! (2010-06)

NallePalle (648) - Uppsala, SWEDEN - OCT 27, 2016
Bottle, O’Connor’s, Uppsala. Pleasant bitter, well balanced, pronounced bitter finish.

radassace (333) - SCOTLAND - OCT 16, 2016
Nice, had this once or twice before years ago and drank from the bottle. Poured into a glass and I always thought it was a Stout/porter. It’s a dark red ale. Lovely, roasted malt coffee etc with a bit of bitterness. Easy to drink.

Parmenion777 (297) - Greater London, ENGLAND - SEP 8, 2016
Pours a dark amber with a loose off white head. Malty, caramel and toffee aroma some earthiness. Similar taste, malty sweet caramel with a moderate bitter finish. Nothing out of the ordinary but very drinkable.

stravale (3065) - Co. Westmeath, IRELAND - AUG 29, 2016
Cask @ Linen Hall, Enniskillen [060816]
Amber, slight haze, bubbly white head
Aroma of sweet toffee caramel
Taste of sweet toffee caramel, some soft bitter earthy hops, some fruity malts
Palate - Medium body, slightly tangy, light bitter. Finish is quite dry, soft tangy malts
Overall - Well it’s been a while since I’ve had a Scottish cask beer - it’s OK

Piw (1127) - Rüsselsheim, GERMANY - AUG 27, 2016
500ml Flasche. Klar und kastanienbraun. Kleine Schaumkrone. Malzig mit leichtem Citrusaroma. Eher leichter Körper.

rob19a (353) - - AUG 20, 2016
Cask ale taste. Flat, a bit bitter. Not hoppy. Only 4.7%. Good beer to drink over a long time. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

kwik-lime (1939) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - AUG 19, 2016
Cask at JDWs in Surbiton. Dark pour. Fairly malty with hints of figs and Twiglets and nicely hopped to balance. Enjoyable.
