Niente male questa premium bitter. Color ambrato dai riflessi rubini, schiuma gialla opaca, cremosa e molto persistente. Aroma luppolato con sentori fruttati. Corpo medio. Finale lungo e amaro. Ottima

UPDATED: SEP 18, 2017 Tap @ Bothy bar, our favorite pub in Kirkwall. Red smoothly frothy bitter ale

Jabic (635) - Plainfield, Vermont, USA - JUL 15, 2017
Ar: Deep toasted malt, bready with a pronounced slightly burnt caramel edge; mossy hops, with hints of lemon and orange. Ap: Deep amber-red; clear, though depth of color makes it difficult to tell; small off-white head with low retention, leaving thin ring of foam and some splotches of bubbles. T: Toast, burnt caramel, and a hint of butterscotch; light sweetness; slightly tannic, black tea hop flavor, moss and lemon peel; deep bread and marmalade; finish is toast and light bitters. P: Medium-light body with medium-low carbonation; some diacetyl slickness; finish is medium-dry. O: Very good ESB; great depth of malt, characterfully British; notes of marmalade, burnt caramel, butterscotch, and moss are also spot on for the style.

Bottle. Dark red-brown colour. Very malty full-bodied beer (roast, toasted malts, buttery caramel). Fruity. Flowery spicy hops. Rather earthy (peaty?) bitter taste. Hints of smoke? Bitter roast malty finish. Very drinkable. (2008)

16.9 oz bottle pours amber with a white head. Aroma of citrus, floral and caramel. Taste is sweet malts an a mild bitterness.

Borresteijn (7340) - Zaandam, NETHERLANDS - JAN 12, 2017
50cl Bottle, thanks Bob & Rosemary! Clear ruby amber colour, light-beige head. Aroma of crystal malt, toffee, resin, hops, rose petals, red fruits, quite some classic hops. Flavour is medium sweet, malty, caramel, toffee, nuts, floral, light fruity, light resin, decent hoppy bitter finish. Light bodied. Nice.

GSAP (755) - NETHERLANDS - JAN 1, 2017
Karamel, licht wurzig maar waterig in smaak. Best complex maar dun. Licht aroma - beetje hoppiger. Niks speciaal, wel doordrinkbaar. 500ml fles.

hershiser2 (3533) - Charlottesville, Virginia, USA - OCT 15, 2016
$5.49 500 ml bottle from Market Street Wine Shop, Downtown. Pours murky brown with an inch plus of creamy beige head. Aroma is strong floral hops, almost perfumey, as well as light citrus, caramel, and apple? Flavor is highly floral, with rose hips, black tea, orange, caramel, raisin, violet?, nuts. Quite nice.

Grzesiek79 (4359) - Radom, POLAND - SEP 21, 2016
Bardzo dobre piwo. Pachnie bardzo chmielnie kwaitami i cytrusami. W smaku goryczkowe, nieco karmelu, ale glownie sporo dawki szlachetnej goryczki. Piwo ladnie wyglada piana spora i trwala, kolor klarowny czerwono herbaciany. Przyjemne i mocno wytrawne zwlaszcza na finiszu. Troche moze zbyt bylo przegazowane.

Perpignan73 (42) - Merseyside, ENGLAND - JUL 11, 2016
500ml bottle, chilled, poured into a pint glass at home. Amber colour; small off white head; lovely sweet nose, toffee apple, orange, malts; bitter taste; creamy; some caramel, raisin, orange with a sweetish, dry finish. Lacks a little body, but very tasty and highly drinkable, imo better than a lot of these new American style red/rye ales.

Amber decent off white head malty hint of fruit some herbs earthy notes smokey peat? Nice ale bot a couple would be enough on a night out. Somehow typically Scottish.
