For a relatively low alcohol ale you get a great experience with this typical Scottish ale. The foam is moderate, the aroma is limited to malt. The taste is very right for a Scottish ale, namely sweet malty, slightly caramel and a sensible richness which change slightly hoppy aftertaste. Easy to drink, but in some ways maybe a little thin.

mabuzzer (586) - Hamilton, SCOTLAND - APR 23, 2015
Coppery colour with white head. Dried fruit aroma, caramel flavour with those dried fruits returning and a hint of spice. Bit thin, perhaps, but otherwise decent

chinchill (4327) - South Carolina, USA - APR 14, 2015
500 ml clear bottle purchased and consumed in Fife. Label now says "Robert Burns Brown Ale" but still lists 4.2% ABV. Pours with a bright copper body topped by a good head. Medium+ body and carbonation. Aroma: a bit more more English hops than malts. Flavor: Lasting, mildly bitter, malty aftertaste.

Clear, light brown beer with a thick frothy head. Slightly sweet malt smell. Mostly malt in the flavour too, though there’s a slightly smoky toffee taste as well. Unspectacular but very drinkable. And not as lively on the tongue as it looks from the pour which is a bonus as well.

TEJA (2448) - Stockholm, SWEDEN - FEB 15, 2015
Bottle from Prisma in Kovoula. Short off white head over a clear red-brown beer. Nice piny aroma with balanced roasted malts. The taste is mild and fresh with a medium body. A sweet caramell malti taste lingers in the aftertaste.

Rating #1051, flaske fra Superbest Nakskov

Teaktræsbrun, klar øl med fint lille skum. God, maltet aroma med en del karamel og humle. Ikke ekstraordinær, men ret fremtrædende. Aromaen afslører også et lille hint af alkohol. Maltet smag med ret tydelig karamel, et snert af bær, bitterhumle og alkohol. Finishen er først sød, sidenhen mere tør og mildt bitter med et strejf af alkohol. En smule for tynd til min smag, men alt i alt en ganske fin bitter.

LED40 (100) - SCOTLAND - DEC 24, 2014
Reviewed on Xmas Eve. Not much aroma on the nose apart from hops and sweet malts. Pours nut brown with a thin off white head. The taste is bitter hops, caramel, dark fruits, sweet malt and toast. The body is quite thin with no lacing left on the glass and the carbonation is limited. Overall decent enough but nothing very special.
