COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION

Experience the best of everything with """"""""the cream of Scottish beer"""""""". Its light creamy head with lacing to the bottom of the glass gives you a taste that’s refreshing and moreish with a hint of hop.

Thick creamy beer that is typically British. Very earthy flavour. Hoppy aroma. Not to my taste, but neither is Guiness.

maekchu (1943) - Hirakata, JAPAN - JUN 30, 2014
440 ml can from Yamaya. Rich, sticky caramel nose, light raisins. Clear coppery color, with avery creamy head. Light roasty initial, caramel, rusted metal. The metallic note is substantial in mid and final. Thin and a bit watery. The nitro thingy really enhances the aromas, but it also diminishes the flavors. Unexciting. Drinkable.

KyotoLefty (6145) - Kyoto, JAPAN - JUN 25, 2014
Can from Yamaya. Malty nose, some caramel, earth, minerals, bread, grass. Decent nose. Pale orange amber with a fine, thick, nitro head. Rather bland flavor, malty caramel and bread, some earthy hops. Ok balance and drinkability, but a bit boring. Quite bready. Light and creamy. Ok flavor, bad nitro and color. I might try it again. Decent enough when you think about the strength.

rlpeeler (82) - Bowling Green, Kentucky, USA - JUN 24, 2014
On tap golden with medium head. Taste is slightly fruit but mostly a light malt. A staple in pubs all over Scotland it is nothing spectacular but it is solid and reliable choice.

jamestulloch (1230) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - JUN 14, 2014
Keg at Holiday Inn, East Kilbride. Clear amber body with a thick white head. Nice lacing. Aroma of sour grain and lemon. Flavour of caramel and sour fruit. Thin body with a watery texture. Faint carbonation prickle. Bland and forgettable.

czlowiekwiadro (181) - POLAND - JUN 11, 2014
karmelowo słodowy zapach z lekkimi nutami palonymi i tytoniowymi, wyczuwalna lekka śmietana. kolor bursztynowy, wpadający w miedziany, przejrzyste, genialna piana. w smaku dość wodniste, czuć karmel, biszkopty, lekką ziołową goryczkę oraz tytoniowe i lekko żelaziste nuty z chmielu. aksamitne i zupełnie odgazowane.

Holmen2 (648) - NORWAY - MAY 21, 2014
From keg. Clear amber. Thick, dense and persistent off-white head and lacing. Aroma of crystal malt and cereals. Similar taste balanced with moderate bitterness. Biscuity. OK, but nothing special.

dado93 (130) - ITALY - APR 13, 2014
Very light beer, amber color with 1cm persistent creamy head, like a guinness, sweet aroma and taste, very creamy body and almost null carbonation... In complex, for style, one acceptable product (But absolutly, not bitter)...

On tap at Caledonia Scottish Pub, Budapest. Pours amber with nice looking creamy white head. Light bodied. Bit sweetish. Expected more but was disappointed. Bland and watery.
