Nilz (521) - Glasgow, - FEB 2, 2013
Draught poured a light mahogany colour with an off white head. Aroma was mildly of hops and the taste had a bit of molasses and maltiness with a mild bitterness.

Drinking this reminds me of the time when I used be partial to a few pints of 70 back in the old days. A big standard keg bitter is the same vain as John’s Smiths or best. Additional points for nostalgia.

chinchill (5226) - South Carolina, USA - MAY 2, 2015
On tap at Feuars Arms in Kirkcaldy Fife. Remarkably creamy and durable head over a brown body with excellent clarity. Amazing creamy lacing. Aroma dominated by English hops. Medium carbonation; Near medium body Very good balance. Slightly bitter by the finish.

jjsint (3435) - Leicester, Leicestershire, ENGLAND - APR 26, 2015
Keg tap at the Hole in the Wall, Dumfries. Tawny brown with a sizeable creamy head. Smells of very little: a bit of plummy/appley sweetness with some malt. Taste is pleasant enough - a fruitcake malt unless dominates - but again shockingly slight. Not a lot to this beverage at all really.

jeevan (246) - SCOTLAND - APR 1, 2015
On tap at the Parlour Leith. Had two pints of this as there was nout else. Pours amber. Toffee malts aroma...just. Taste not doing much. Thin. Some maltiness and a little fruity hops. Thin and too bland. Why !

2.2
Stuu666 (14563) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - MAR 11, 2015
Cask at a pub in Rothesay. Pours copper amber, nose is full toffee, floral, taste is more dull toffee, dry, thin.

2.6
Scopey (15471) - Croydon, Greater London, ENGLAND - AUG 18, 2014
Keg at Jolly Judge. It pours clear amber with a thick white head. The nose is soft, grainy, brown caramel, raisin and sultana. The taste is smooth, creamy, toasty grain, wood, touch of pepper and leather with a dry finish. Medium body, fine carbonation and foamy mouth-feel. Quite superior to the caledonia best I had earlier today... Good looking a good mouth-feel.

2.8
allmyvinyl (10932) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - APR 8, 2014
Keg at the Royal Hotel, Stromness. Pours clear red brown, thick white head. Light malty aromas, sweet taste, watery finish. Ok.
