Reviewed from notes taken during a trip to Glasgow, Scotland in January 2011. Served from a cask into a pint glass in the Bon Accord pub.

A: Thin head of decent retention. Gold-copper colour; transparent.

Sm: Light barley; limited scent typical of cask ales.

T: Slick open to unremarkable body of standard bitter hops, malt, and barley. Finish is nice and crisp-like.

Mf: Too smooth; almost watery.

Dr: Wouldn't have it again now, but sure it'd appease fans o' the style.

1/2 pint on cask at the Oysterhead in Polzeath, Cornwall.

A: Reddish-brown, no head on this cask ale.

S: sweet, mellow, malty

T: Very mellow and smooth and mildly sweet.

M: Very smooth, almost no carbonation, a slight sticky/oily residue that is very pleasant.

D: incredibly drinkable--one of the smoothest bitter cask ales I've ever had!
