McWorta (994) - LUXEMBOURG - JUL 22, 2015
Hazy orange amber colour with a creamy off white head. Noses of hay, malty, toast, some caramel and touches of herbs. Light lively, a bit slick with a light-medium body. herbal malt sweetness with a light citric bitterness on the far back of the palate. Medium finish.

These cans with nitrogen capsule makes all something special about the beer. Well, it does not taste quite as fresh as from a keg, but it’s close. Belhaven Best has although creamy and solid foam which is snow-white and persistent. The aroma is malty, as expected in a Scottish ale. The aroma is somewhat hidden away because of the thick foam, but besides malt felt little easy fruit. The taste is rich, despite its ’only’ 3.5% alcohol. Nutty flavors on a background of caramel is the best description I can give. I’m actually quite impressed by the great taste as the relatively weak alcohol beer has. It certainly is a beer I like enjoying again.

Keg @ Royal Hotel, Laurencekirk. Amber pour with a dense creamy head. Nose is pretty minimal. Just a touch of bread and some prune. Caramel. Taste is light. Sort of tinny, soft caramel sweetness. Wafers. Light body, soft carbonation.

Can. It?s OK but the combination of a slightly watery beer under a synthetic style creamy head, was weird. Looks nice though. Not too great in all 4.5 out of10

kapusil (780) - HUNGARY - JAN 19, 2015
Tried from a nitro tap. Clear orange body, white head. Both the aroma and taste are light and mostly grainy but also have slight notes of caramel and floral hops. The body is also kind of light. Not a super exciting beer, but there is nothing bad about it.

Very light beer. Creamy and looks fine with it’s even head and cloudy golden body before settling clear. Not bad, but nothing special either. Not much to it. Prefer the 80 schilling myself.
