Tasting Summary

These comments are the opinion of the individual reviewer and represent what they thought of the beer on a particular day in a particular pub. If a review is less favourable, it may be because the beer suffered somewhere in the supply chain between them and the brewery.

Ravenswood R.B.L.C., Banchory, Aberdeenshire

McGargleAcceptable24 Jul 2010 Dark golden colour retaining a fine white head. Aroma and flavour swamped by biscuit malt and yeast leaving no room for anything else. Thin in the mouth for 4.5%.

The Wharf, Dartford, Kent

DubbelPoor09 Aug 2009 'Doggy' Sheps malt and washed out hops, flat and not summery enough by far. Not very good considering there should be no problem with throughput at this busy flagship outlet.

The Black Horse, Monks Horton, Kent

The White Lion, Selling, Kent

AndrewGood26 Jul 2009 A touch too cold perhaps but when it warmed up a bit the woody-resinous overtones came out nicely.

Behind the Wall, Falkirk, Falkirk

CharlesGood24 Jul 2009 Very drinkable. Tastes like it has lemonade in it though.

The Royal, Tankerton, Kent

AndrewAcceptable13 Jul 2008 The initial flavours were really good; rose petal and turkish delight but they were immediately blasted out of the way by an overpowering base-bitterness.

AndrewGood01 Jul 2007 Good heathery hops dominate over the malt. If it wasn't for a hint of marmite I'd have given it a higher score.
