500ml bottle into chalice at the Millenium Hotel in Reading, on the recommendation of the bartender kid. Best before 2/28/15!

Poured without much head. Thick chill haze across the deep copper body. Just skim film and no lacing ... Looks heavier than the ABV

Aroma is of a rich, yet dull floral nature - think old flowers in the vase. Very nutty - walnuts, in particular. Somewhat bready, too, toward the end.

MF is dirty and relatively rich... Drinks like a bigger beer. Some earth left on the palate. Flavors are full of roses, and old citrus. Leafy, herbal quality is high.

Overall, this has tons of flavor for a 4.4% beer... English IPAs are not everyone's "cup of tea", but this one is an authentic must-try from Scotland to help understand them.

Had pint on cask at the Old Blackfriars in Aberdeen 2007

A Scottish mate said this was his favorite beer and had one first thing each time he returned home form the states... It was one of my favorite beers I had on my UK trip

I wouldn't classify this as an IPA... at least not like I am familiar with... but in saying that I loved it

Great golden orange color... looks rich... great head... nice fresh nose

Mild hopps... but loads of flavor... more malty than I am use too... but a distinguishing characteristic for my yankee palate. Tons of subtle flavor... a nice journey... sweet malt, dried fruit, mild citrus...

I'll have another one of those
