500ml bottle from Ninas, Tollcross. BBE 31/12/13. Pours clear pale amber with a massive rocky white head, too fizzy. Aromas of metal and red fruit. Tastes of not very much, light toffee maybe. Watery finish.

zacgillbanks (2088) - Tyne & Wear, ENGLAND - DEC 27, 2013
Bottle from Rehills, Newcastle. This hazy amber beer pours with a large foamy head and has flavours of oak and toffee with almond and wood on the fruity finish. A lot of flavour for a low ABV beer.

(Bottle) Hazy golden beer with a decent frothy head. Aroma is floral hop and caramel. Flavour is tangy, fruit and sharp with an underlying malt flavour and a very dry finish. Quite tasty.

Erzengel (2327) - Wuppertal, GERMANY - AUG 27, 2013
Thanks to Sean! 50cl. Netter mild-weicher Antrunk. Die Ale-typische Note kommt im Hauptteil gepaart mit netten, mild-weichen Karamelltönen. Der Nachgeschmack ist lang anhaltend, trocken, etwas röstmalzig und schöne Ale-karamellig. --> Sehr leckeres Ale! 12/12/12/12

mighty_meadow (152) - Kilwinning, SCOTLAND - MAR 14, 2013
Bought from Arran Brewery shop. 500ml bottle. Pours a caramel colour with decent white head. Quite sweet with a lightly bitter finish. Somehow I am getting a touch of ginger in the aroma and taste, possibly an outside influence. Very nice and easily drinkable.

Gravity cask @ SRAF 2012. Reddish amber brown colour, not much head. Fruity malt aroma. Dry grainy fruity malt flavour with a hint of caramel. Bitter aftertaste. A decent bitter.

On cask at the Scottish Real Ale Festival, 2012. Pours a dark golden colour with a fair beige head. Aroma of caramel, honey, yeast and alcohol. Similar flavours with mild carbonation and a foamy mouth-feel. Lingering honey again. OK.
