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!

Backlog rating: Tried in the hotel in Lochaline on holiday, April 2016. Pint pours pale amber with creamy white head, leaving good lacing. Aroma slightly insipid citrus, biscuity, lacking depth. Thin and watery, pretty bland and flat.

Can from Copper and Oak Liquor Merchants 190516. Full bodied and quite creamy in the mouth but Iím just not all that fussed about the flavour. Looks quite good with a strong amber colour and a lush thick creamy head of foam. I canít imagine drinking a lot of this beer as one pint is enough for me.

Perhaps 10-20 thousand pints of it from living in Scotland for 6 years. Perfectly fine, really easy drinking bitter thatís light on flavor but refreshing and pairs nicely with pies.

Deep amber creamy head. Sweet aroma flowed by sweet caramel malt flavour and very mild bitter balance. Decent easy drinking

Benzai (12605) - Oirschot, THE NETHERLANDS, NETHERLANDS - DEC 22, 2015
Tap @ Terminus Den Bosch. Clear rusty orange color, average sized dense creamy white to off-white head that lasts forever. Smell and taste malts, hops, lightly bitter. Nice typical bitter. Pleasant.

teorn88 (5868) - Out of the EU, Greater London, ENGLAND - OCT 18, 2015
Backlog rating. Draft in Edinbourgh, reminiscence if the trip from 2014. It pours a clean golden color with a small white head. Aroma is grainy and dry, light grassy bitterness and straw. Taste is grainy, slightly sweet upfront an more dry and bitter afterwards, with notes if grass, straw and starch. Light bodied with lively carbonation. Overall, meh
