GarethYoung (1111) - Glasgow, - JUL 11, 2007
[Cask from The Guildford Arms] Coppery colour with a moderate, tight head, good clarity, nice condition. Leafy, English hop character, very earthwith some floral nuances, lots of malt, biscuity, caramel. Medium body with a hoppy bite in the finish.

BlackHaddock (7346) - Shropshire, ENGLAND - JUL 17, 2017
Third of a cask pint at the Scottish Real Ale Festival in Edinburgh’s Corn Exchange on 7th July 2017. Really disappointed with this beer having loved everything else ( I think ) I have had from Traquair House. This was watery and weak in all aspects, nearly took it back! Scored kindly.

Cokemonkey11 (879) - - AUG 8, 2015
1/3 pint Edinburgh real ale festival 2015. Pours medium almond amber with a thin thin white head subsiding slowly. Scent is bitter bitter with nut, almond hints. Resin. Taste is medium caramel and toffee character with bitter and smoky finish. Great.

Cask at SRAF. Clear orange. Aroma is sweet caramel, overripe fruits. Taste is sweetish, a bit boozy, stuffy caramel. Meh.

Cask at SRAF. Pours copper, nose is caramel, apple, taste is sweet, thin, light fruit.

2.8
Scopey (14730) - Croydon, Greater London, ENGLAND - AUG 16, 2014
Cask at Cloisters. It pours clear deep amber-brown with a medium yellow-white head. The nose is toasted brown, grainy, mild caramel, earth and wood. The taste is smooth, toasted grain, brown, wood and leather with a dry finish. Medium body and fine carbonation. Simple malt-driven job. OK, but probably their poorest offering.

3.3
jamestulloch (4113) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - JUL 13, 2014
Cask at Scottish Real Ale Festival 2014. Clear caramel body with a thin off-white head. Light lacing. Aroma of earth, heather and Hobnob biscuits. Flavour of caramel, grass and biscuit. Thin body with an oily mouthfeel. Faint carbonation prickle. Well balanced - quite plain, but very nice.

allmyvinyl (10613) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - JUL 11, 2014
Cask at The Scottish Real Ale Festival 2014. Pours clear amber, thin off-white head. Aromas of caramel and apples, light sugar. Taste is sweet. Finishes clean enough. Bit boring to be honest.

2.6
JohnRMurdoch (4871) - Glasgow, SCOTLAND - OCT 4, 2013
Cask @ Troon beer Festival. Reddish amber brown, decent head. Dry grain malt aroma. Dry grain flavour. Watery with bitter aftertaste. Bland, just drinkable.

3.1
mr_h (5535) - Ayr, SCOTLAND - OCT 3, 2013
Cask by handpump at Troon Beer Festival - clear dark amber, no head, mild raisin, malty aroma, raisin toffee, very thin texture, peculiar aftertaste

2.9
Nuffield (4171) - Roseville, Minnesota, USA - JUL 21, 2012
A very simple beer: malty, caramel in front, middle and finish, with a smooth palate and a classic rich golden color. Fine; not fancy or flashy, and it didn’t really appeal much to me. (cask at Scottish Real Ale Festival, Edinburgh, June 2012)
