Kallaskander, your post causes me to think that the lads have already moved well past the stage I saw them at. They'd started in the spring last year and I think they spent the summer just trying to keep up with demand. Perhaps the winter season has allowed them to fine-tune a bit. I'm looking forward to seeing how they're doing.
Too bitter? Impossible!
I've never had a pint that was too bitter, or a dram that was too peaty. That's the good stuff! Traditional Scottish beers like Caledonian 80/ are malty with little bitterness, as hops aren't generally grown in Scotland. But for my money, there's nothing better than a Yorkshire bitter, such as Timothy Taylor's Landlord. There are good Scottish versions, like Deuchar's IPA and Orkney Red MacGregor.
Professor Schobert didn't buy the Abbotsford, did he?
