On cask at picture house, Colwyn bay. Pours red brown with good white head. A typical red ale, with hints of spice. An excellent session ale. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

stravale (3145) - Co. Westmeath, IRELAND - JAN 21, 2012
Cask @ Kimberly Arms, Findhorn
Dark brown.....medium frothy head...good lacing...Aroma of caramel malts and some spicy hops....Taste of caramel malts..bit of roasted malt...bitter...light spicy hops...some fruit......Palate - soft carb...thin to medium body. Finish - quite bitter and peppery....burnt....over lingering..hangs around too long..doesn’t clean
Overall - Flavoursome hoppy bitter for the abv but that finish is too lingering

Benjii (3050) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - SEP 3, 2011
Cask at Cloisters. Pours a red colour with a thick white head. Malty aroma of caramel and barley with grassy hops. Similar flavours with toffee notes. A little bitter with a dry finish and a long bitter linger. Mild carbonation. Not bad.

BenH (3434) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - AUG 18, 2011
Cask at nobles in leith. Clear red with off white head. Aroma is juicy, citrus hops with caramel malt. Taste is hoppy, grapefruit, lemons followed by caramel toffee. Finishes well, crisp. Delicious. One of the best hopped Scottish beers going

One of the best Scottish reds - you can always rely on Orkney to produce nice beers.

marcot (770) - Campomorone, ITALY - MAY 16, 2011
In Cask all’O Connor; è il giusto formato in cui servirla, una buona bitter ma mi aspettavo meglio.

LordCorkscrew (1774) - Ronco Scrivia (GE), ITALY - MAR 6, 2011
Bella lì, prima ale dal cask, grazie all’avvedutezza di Maurizio dell’O Connor, primo locale a Genova ad offrire questa possibilità; si beve con grande facilità, la differenza con le ales in bottiglia provate è patente, è per questo servizio che una birra del genere è intesa; sul prodotto in sé, siamo nell’onestà, credo che si possa avere di meglio, ma tant’è tant’ò

JohnRMurdoch (5050) - Glasgow, SCOTLAND - DEC 17, 2010
UPDATED: OCT 13, 2011 Cask @ The State Bar & Chestnuts Hotel, Ayr. Oaty aroma. Medium brown colour. Sour fruity nutty flavour. Not as good as bottle version.

hughie (3996) - Bedford, Bedfordshire, ENGLAND - NOV 12, 2010
Cask, gravity, at Wellington Arms, Bedford, in ’4th’ Wellington Beer Festival ’10. Amber. Faint malt aroma. Some sweetness in the taste, with a good deal of earthiness. Sharp bitter finish.
