A dark chestnut ale with plum and chocolate aroma notes. It has a smooth malt taste with smokey and chocolate notes. A good smooth, malty ale worth the experience of trying. My 5*

This is an Amber ale with a good description. A good traditional ale aroma with spicy aromatic, almost bubble gum notes. The aroma is reminiscent of pubs in the past.

This has a ‘winey’ taste with hop and sweet notes in a good malt base. This ale is a new brew for 2015 Burns Night. Brewed in Edingburgh by the 140 year old Caledonian Brewery commemorating the great Scotish poet.Robert Burns

As a.child I remember passing the High Street pubs on a warm summer day, when the pub doors were open and you could see the bar with those strange posts (beer engines) on the bar and that distinctive, even then, pleasing aroma. This ale has that reminiscent aroma that conjures up that memory.
