stravale (3055) - Near Carrick-on-Shannon, - FEB 13, 2013harrisoni (18402) - Ashford, Kent, ENGLAND - OCT 16, 2016
Cask @ Bandstand Bar, Nairn 
Amber brown, clear, thick dense creamy white head with good lacing
Aroma of soft cereal malts, hint of soft roast, light aroma. Taste of very light soft caramel malts, bit of toffee, light roast grains - I couldn’t get much else out, came across as considerably weak in flavour for the abv. Palate - light body, texture had some creaminess though.
Overall - Just came across as very bland and dull - to be honest I’ve had beers around the 2.8% - 3% range that have had much more flavour. More taste and it had the potential to be good because there’s no brewing defects in there at all...Ramp up the flavour!!!!!
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. uckelman (789) - Durham, ENGLAND - JAN 23, 2016
