33 cl bottle of Cuillin Beast purchased at the brewery store in Uig. The clear copper body is topped by a weak, off-white head. This has an exceptionally nice aroma with traces of vanilla, spices, soft ripe fruits and caramel. The flavor follows but doesnt have the balance or complexity of the aroma. Smooth, full body with light carbonation and some alcohol warmth.

bottle @ Keg Liquors / Clarksville IN --- Aroma of earthy malt and apple. Clear, very dense ruby brown, creamy smooth deep tan head, lace bands. Taste is creamy malt with toffee, dark fruit, light apple, and a buzz on the tip of my tongue. Medium carbonation ushers in mild hops that keep things in check. Malt and toffee bring things to a creamy close. Big and complex, each ingredient flowing smoothly to the next. And light enough to be easy to drink. Recommended.

330ml bottle @ Shrewsbury Beer Share, June 16, courtesy of purpledragons. Many thanks. Pours amber, off-white head. Aroma is light caramel. Taste has light swirling caramel, smooth malts.. nicely balanced but essentially quite a toned down, easy-going scotch ale.

500ml bottle. Shelton product so likely stale. Brown pour, off-white head. ARoma is savory yeast, dark fruits, herbs, savory, some oxidation. Flavor is okay, heavy english yeast character, spicy herb type, some marmite, dry and toasty, caramel and fruits. Not bad but not great.
