Supping on it right now, and it is fantastic! The taste is there but it lacks something, if it was a piece of music it would need more bass, however it is still a fantastic beer.

It wasn’t surprise, it was shock. Only 4.3% but lots of spices, fruits, chocolate and roasty notes. Thanks God, it could be easily found in supermarkets.

Pours a gorgeous russet topped with a firm slightly off white head. Aroma is sweet malts, caramel, juicy caramel and the merest hint of earthy spice. tastewise the sweetness of caramel and light chocolate dominates and with a slightly thin body makes the beer insanely drinkable. Gorgeous, gorgeous beer, exactly what a Scottish ale should be.

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Hazy dark amber color, thin head. Very nice hop aroma, dry hopping (Fuggles?), and some caramel. Quite ordinary maltiness and caramel, and body structure, but again a very pleasant hop note. The hop is mixed with a strong caramel note in the final. A good bottled Bitter.

Bottle. The colour is brown-red, the liquid is clear. The foam is white and very thin, making the brew look a little sad.
The smell is loaded with a complex and rather tricky, chemical flavour of hops. I found notes of bitter lemons, bitter almonds and a touch of yeast.
The carbonation is rather mild giving it a nice, soft feel. The small bubbles make it more like a cask beer than a bottled brew.
The taste is dominated by the bitter and aroma hops, but the somewhat sweet malt gives it a good body and a balanced tasting experience. The aftertaste is a bitter one with a complex, dry taste.
This is a session beer that might need some time to get into, but it is worth it!
