3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
holy smokes, opened a 440ml can and almost exlosion of froth, but managed to get to glass and salvage most of it. Poured forth into glass almost as complete foam extremely violent mixture in glass, I thought a wicked chemistry reaction occuring. But it settled down to give a gorgeous looking dark clear amber color with a nice thick amber/white foam head. Body is very unlively though 10 min after pouring. I get honey, caramel, toffee, slight bitter. Very smooth creamy texture with a long butterscotch like after taste. Overall this was an experience, perhaps can was dropped several times before reaching me, but overall certainly unique in my beer experience tastings so far!

Clear caramel brown with thick white head. Slight toffee aroma. Smooth creamy palate. Flavour has slight toffee sweetness, a balancing rather nondescript tartness, and no noticeable bitterness. Drinkable.

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Rating from 2008: Toller, supercremiger Schaum. Der Antrunk ist vollmundig, süßlich und sehr süffig. Der Hauptteil ist cremig, leicht malzig, aber etwas laff. Der Nachgeschmack ist lang, leicht herb und schön cremig, angenehm-süßlich!
→ Ein sehr tolles schottisches Bitter! --> 13+13+12+13 = 12,73

471ml can into an English pint. Pours a clear amber with a thick, lasting, creamy head and good lacing and lots of cascading in the pour. Too bad it didn’t taste as good as it looked. Light caramel aroma. Light grassy flavour with only mild bitterness. Not a whole lot going on.

2.8 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Keg tap at the Castle Tavern, Inverness, 18/10/13.
Ok - just the one shit tick for the day having exhausted the cask winners ...
Clear golden with a good sized off white head.
Nose is pale malts, sugars, light caramel, hint of fruit.
Taste comprises light malts, grassy, fruit notes.
Medium bodied, fine carbonation, smooth on the palate, grassy bitter notes in the finish.
Mediocre affair but as keg stuff goes not that bad tbh - it certainly beat a few of the cask/bottle conditioned offerings I had across this weekend!

1.8 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 3/20
Has a very weak grain aroma. Looks a perfect copper body with a modest cream ale head. Flavour is not intrusive but not complex. Soft, watery finish. It’s an okay session beer but lacking complexity.

Canned. Poured medium golden colour with thick creamy head that lasted throughout. Aroma was dampened somewhat, but slight sweet malt was noticed. Similar taste with a bit of caramel. Very creamy mouthfeel and quite enjoyable. Well balanced overall.

Van de tap ergens in Schotland. Donkergeel, een dunne crêmige kraag die wel aanwezig blijft. Ruikt heel lichtzuur en moutig, smaakt ook zo. Bitterzure afdronk, weinig body.

Not very intensive sweet caramel and floral aroma. Great creamy nitrogen head, lasting till the end. Light brown, clear body. Not very powerfull taste, but with very good balance between sweetness, bitterness and sourness.
