3.88/5  rDev -0.8%

Darkish brown with ruby highlights this projected a balance of fruit and earth within the malt profile. Head retention is poor though and the nose suggests a heady experience

A bit slick on the tongue at first before taking on a firmer quality. A pretty decent take on the 80 but a bit more Bordeaux than the classic Burgundian like qualities of a classic pint of Belhaven 80. Could do with some more harmonious integration of its various parts. Decent enough though.

California

3.8/5  rDev -2.8%

Served in a pint glass. Reviewed December 2010.

A: Darkish. A mild head tops a pretty, red, (barely) clear beer. Some lacing.

S: Sweet, a bit sour, and with noticeable fruit. Nice-ish.

T: I like it! Malty-sweet, a bit watery, but still good. The creamy head is extra-delicious and disappears too soon. A fruity character dominates the maintaste. The aftertaste is smooth, with lingering fruit.

M: Increasingly watery, much to my disappointment. The creaminess was nice, but by the end, it's just washy. Maybe a bit of bitter dryness, but only on the feel (not the taste).

D: Definitely a half-pinter -- the first half of my glass was far more pleasant than the last half. Still, a sold pick and one of the better cask ales I've had.

Florida

3.88/5  rDev -0.8%

A - A clear, dark brown body with ruby highlights topped with a small, off white head. Good retention, but weak lace.

S - Dark bready malt and lightly sweet caramel with a little bit of toffee. Just a hint of herbal hop aroma in the background.

T - Watery caramel up front with a little bit of toffee and some brown sugar. The caramel intensifies toward the middle with a hint of molasses. Some light hop flavor in the finish with just enough bitterness to balance the malt.

M - Medium body, low carbonation, and a dry finish.

D - An enjoyable scottish ale. The malt character is not overly complex, but it hits on all the major points of the style and the beer is certainly easy enough to drink.

4.08/5  rDev +4.3%

I sampled this beer in the Dagda bar in Edinburgh.

The beer poured a dark ruby colour with a nice thick creamy head that gave good retention and left rings on the glass.

The nose was typical of a Scottish beer; sweet malts, slightly toasted, with a good deal of fruitiness. These flavours continued through to the mouth with an initial burst of toasted malts, followed by a fruity kick then with a lingering aftertaste of sweet malts: very nice indeed.

The beer was medium - heavy bodied; ideal for a Scottish beer but not too heavy that you couldn't have a few. I have to admit that I enjoyed it that much I stayed for a few more, at 4.4% this is would make an ideal session ale.
