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

Beershine (5224) - The Sunshine State, Florida, USA - SEP 17, 2010
Cask @ Cumberland. Dark amber with lacing. Dry, earthy, aroma has some damp wood. Dry flavors are nice with mild roast. Its not sweet, not toasty, not toasty, not bitter. It is a bit too safe? Boring.
