500 ml bottle, 4.1% ABV, at The Granite City (JDW), Aberdeen Airport. Copper to reddish amber colour, small white head. Minimal grainy and dusty aroma. The flavour has a little fruit and some caramel, and is otherwise grainy with moderate hops. Nice enough to drink though. imdownthepub (15528) - Banbury, Oxfordshire, ENGLAND - AUG 14, 2017

Bottle from Dobbies garden centre Ashford and drunk at home. Dobbies has an inexplicable Scottish beer distribution. Must have been a dozen rates for me. But nothing highly rated. Hazy deep amber colour lasting beige head. Hoppy as i poured it. Hop and toffee on aroma. Toffee malty in the mouth. Nowt wrong with it though. It’s a toffee malty bitter. Some bitterness on the finish. Well i thought a decent toffee hoppy bitter. Decent. Not exciting but drinkable enough to have more than one if you were down the pub.

Bottle from Fyne Wines, Argyll. Rich copper-orange colour with very few, large bubbles, no head. Simple malt aroma with soft caramel. Medium bodied, not so much spritzy but a definite peppery tingle. Again, very simple on the palate: malt, caramel, biscuit, hints of leather and ginger bread; very short finish. A simple Bitter, pleasantly drinkable with all malt character, no detectable hops; lacks depth.
