Cask at The Lade Inn, Callander. Pours clear very dark ruby with a small tanned head. Aroma of dark chocolate. Taste is smooth,with a light tarty fruity note, acidic even, probably not intended by the brewer, which ruins the experience for me.

Glass at the Lade Inn - a pretty dark ruby with a slim white creamy head. Pleasing aroma of caramel and burnt notes. Taste of mild bitter and hops, smooth on the palate. Worth giving it a try. JohnRMurdoch (4997) - Glasgow, SCOTLAND - MAY 9, 2012
Bottle from The Scottish Real Ale Shop. Very dark brown colour, not much head. Mild grassy caramel, liquorice & malt aroma & flavour. Smooth with sweetish afteraste. I am not a big mild fan but this is OK. tombyars (1744) - Saltcoats, SCOTLAND - MAR 11, 2012
Way hey - this is more like it. Sampled this fine ruby red ale in the Lade Inn on August 2007. For me - this was the best beer in the portfolio and the foreign tourists loved it - judging by the number of ruby red pint glasses!. Cask, handpump dispense. Dark ruby red in colour with a nice contrasting white creamy head. Very rich berry fruit in the strong pleasant aroma and good thick mouth feel. Pale, roast and loads of crystal malts in there, giving a fiery malty base and juicy wine gums. Reminded me very much of Caledonian 125!! with the rich fruit flavours of overripe strawberries and a hint of burnt fudge. No hop at all in the aftertaste but dry oak and leather in the lovely finish. The pick of the bunch for me! rosenbergh (11753) - Tampere, FINLAND - FEB 22, 2012
