Bottle. Hoppier than Belhaven Scottish Ale, and a bit more bitter. I can’t remember much else, so take that as you may.

Bottled, 500ml from Lidisfarne Meadery, Holy Island, Northumberland. Reddish amber with slight head. Thinnish, sharp but slightly sweet boys bitter. A caramel, malty note, some interest for the abv, but not one to return to.

For coming from overseas, and in a bottle, this is a really good Scottish ale. Quite hard to believe actually.

strangaj (250) - West Chester, Ohio, USA - MAY 2, 2007
A clear moderate brown color with white head. Aroma had a bit of roast flavor. A very smooth medium-bodied malty taste made this one very easy to drink. Little to no caronbation make it even better. I really can’t complain about this beer at all.

[bottle from tesco] Aroma is malty, some sweet caramel. very thin body, finish just sort of drops away to nothing. bland stuff.

DonMagi (5595) - bantervile, Bedfordshire, ENGLAND - FEB 21, 2006
I find this beer hard to fault, as its better than most of the belhaven range. Aroma is slightly minimal though some malt character kicking through. Taste is More going to the hops, though maybe a little under hopped. Alright for a 3% ale.

scotty (1076) - SCOTLAND - OCT 19, 2005
Good flavoursome beer! Soft sweet roasted malt on the nose and also on the palate. Not the classic pale ale I remember, but still good stuff. Asda. I agree the cask version is better, but where can you find it these days?
