Cask by handpump at Cask & Barrel Southside, Edinburgh on 2 Jan 12 - pours dark ruby red with a lovely malt amora and thick creamy head. Flavour is caramel and fruity. Very sweet, just how I like my beer. One of the greats. sic1314 (4775) - Leiden, NETHERLANDS - MAY 26, 2013
Poured a deep ruby red with a small white head. Aroma of floral and citrus hops and caramel malt. Medium body, flavour of sweet berries and plums over the malt. kmacphail (37) - Isle of Lewis, SCOTLAND - JUL 23, 2008
I enjoyed my first pint of this in a great wee pub in Edinburgh called the Dagda Bar. A dark ruby pint with a nice thick head that showed good retention throughout the pint. The nose was sweet malts and fruit with a slight hint of roastiness added. The taste was a typical 80/~ malty and fruity with a nice sweet aftertaste. A nice heavy body finished off a very nice beer. Nice enough for me to order another. Hirsty (26) - Perth, SCOTLAND - OCT 20, 2013
Slightly spicy, fully malty with some noble hops in the background. Tasty 80 shilling.

8th July 2017: cask pint in Diggers, Edinburgh. Lovely looking beer, deep amber/brown bodied, full foaming white head. Malts rule the nose and taste but the hops play their part to nicely balance out the sweetness with a good bitterness and light fruitiness in the taste. Very, very drinkable for guys like me with a sweet tooth.
