3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottle to lament (but respect) the fact that Scotland has voted no to independence. Pours clear copper brown with airy off-white head. Clear aroma of malt, caramel, and hops, with touches of yeast. Bitter flavour of hops, with sweet notes of malt, caramel and fruit. Estery and bitter afteraste. Easily drinkable and not as bitter as a bitter Bitter. Okay but nothing extraordinary.

This isn’t a bad ale and maybe I’m being to harsh, but after drinking the more complex 80 schilling I found this to be very boring. I’m sure had I done it the other way around, I wouldn’t be so tough. Really should try the 80 schilling instead though.

2.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 11/20
Clear 500ml bottle: poured into a UK pint sleeve on 27th Nov 13.
Looked good: nice mahogany reddy brown body with a thin but full tanned covering. Clean and clear with carbonation bubbles rising throughout the tasting.
Sweet malts ruled the nose and taste: treacle, toffee and caramel coming through in that order.
The body isn’t thin, but it hasn’t got the depth to carry the sweetness very well, seems a little unbalanced and one dimensional because of that.
OK, promises so much in looks and smell, but lacks a hop backbone and oomph.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Clear dark copper with short off-white head and lacing. Malty aroma has wood, nuts, bit caramel and hay. Hops under this. Light to medium body, semidry and slightly bitter, finish dries bit, low carbonation, soft and thin feel, more fruits than in aroma. Needs more body but flavors are ok.
