Keg at the Laurieston, Glasgow. Light to mid brown with a massive cream-coloured head. Light chocolate malt notes on the nose with some Caramello. Pleasant if unengaging bittersweet taste. A touch of overripe citrus in the aftertaste. Not my cup of tea but I’ve had worse.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Draft at the Applecross Hotel Scotland. Pours a clear ruby/caramel with a half finger of creamy white head that coats the glass. Aroma has smooth notes of caramel, mild dark fruits, and a bit of fruity eaters. Taste is balanced with great notes of caramel, bread, slight bread and roast, and a very slightly fruity bitter ending. Medium body with a low carbonation. Clean and a touch watery in the mouth with a dry finish. Overall a great beer after a long highland drive. Nice caramel with a soft carbonation.

2.8 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Keg at Thomson’s, Edinburgh. It pours deep amber-brown with a medium creamy beige head. The nose is toasted brown bread, creaminess, earth and leather. The taste is creamy, toast, watery, earth, very mild bitterness and brown bread with a short, dry finish. Light-medium body, fine carbonation and foamy mouth-feel. Looks good and mouth-feel is decent, not much taste though... Fine for chasing a whisky.
