Cask at the Kings Highway, Inverness, 19/10/13. Clear copper coloured with a good sized off white head. Nose is thin, light bready malts, hint of fruit. Taste carries more depth, caramel, fruit, hint of coffee cake (yeah!), biscuit malt. Medium bodied, smooth on the palate, good conditioning on this number leading to a malt lead subtle bitterness in the closure. Ok innoffensive offering I guess!

The flavour is quite sweet with some prominent caramel. A good, easy to drink session bitter.
