Draft at Bow Bar. Pours brown with a mild head. Some toffee and malt, OK not the best bitter ever.

berkshirejohn (6690) - Bracknell, Berkshire, ENGLAND - JUN 2, 2009
Draught at the "Taste of Edinburgh" festival. Treacly brown colour with a cream head; smooth and malty in the "heavy" style; sweet and nutty with a touch of bitterness; easy to drink and satisfying.

thewolf (12861) - Kolding, DENMARK - AUG 1, 2009
Cask @ Bow Bar, Edinburgh.

Pours a nice chestnut colour, with a fine, staying, creamy, off-white head. Aroma is grainy, some rye, low hops and relatively sweet. Low carbonation, fine creamy mouthfeel. Flavour has some metallic off-flavours, otherwise light rye, chocolate, light roasted and a fair, hoppy finish.

DonMagi (5593) - bantervile, Bedfordshire, ENGLAND - JUN 16, 2007
STBF07. Malty, hints of honey and fruit. Taste is a similr beast, however bland, theres no finish, its another bloody traditional scottish beer that everyones had 40 times already.

Oakes (19045) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - OCT 13, 2010
Bright brick amber. Caramelly nose with diacetyl in there as well. Soft caramel character. This is a very mellow beer. Sweet finish. I can see where they’re going but it’s not my favourite.

Cask at the stable bar. A malty fella with some berry flavours. A solid enough 80/-.

2.7
RoyceH (1200) - Hesperange, LUXEMBOURG - JUN 1, 2008
Cask at Whey Pat Ale Festival, St Andrews. Dark red with a thin white head. Nose is fruity and sickly malts, sugar. Mouth is quite straightforward malty and some dark fruit. Really quite boring.

2.7
Rune (13658) - Tromsø, NORWAY - DEC 9, 2008
Cask, half pint. Mahogany body under a low, off-white head. Nice laceworks. Weak aroma of fruitlike malts. Plain malty initial taste, becoming more fruity and bitter towards the ending. Medium bodied. A wonderful experience sitting at the old island bar and gantry at Abbortsford in Edinburgh [25.10.2008].

AshtonMcCobb (6954) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - AUG 21, 2012
On tap @ the Haymarket. Pours dark amber with a nice head. The nose has toffee and cream with a little bit of raisin in there. The taste is a little bit cardboardy and the malt on the finish is astringent. The palate is medium bodied with a medium thick textjure and a slightly astringent finish, unfortunately. Overall, this is the worst beer I’ve had from this brewery, so I must assume something has not been carried out correctly by the pub, so will need to re-rate.
