Poured from a 33cL bottle into a wine glass.

A: Light, murky chestnut brown. Creamy head with decent lacing. Opaque.

S: Apples. Deep, malty apples.

T: Really good. Apple is present, but there is a wonderful alcoholic sweetness supporting it more reminiscent of figs and caramelised sugar. The brewery claims "crystallized sugars and sweet dried fruits," an apt enough summary. The body isn't heavy, but the flavour is immense. A bit of spice (cinnamon comes to mind) and a spritely carbonation. The aftertaste is drying and lightly bitter, with unexpected hops and a roastiness.

M: Fun and surprising. Light, but rich. Teasing, but firm.

D: A really wonderful beer. To be honest, I picked this one because it was local, strong, and unreviewed. I will definitely pick up another bottle and work my way through Luckie Ales' selections.

Notes: The label bears the tagline, "As brewed in 1885," and the website expounds, "This is a reincarnation of the 68/- (8.1% ABV, 48 IBU) brewed by Ushers of Edinburgh in 1885."
