larsga (7251) - Oslo, NORWAY - FEB 12, 2012
Medium offwhite head. Clear brown body. Deep caramelly nutty aroma with roasty herbal resiny notes. Dry-sweetish caramelly earthy taste with roasty grainy notes. Mid-to-light body. Mild, soft mouthfeel. Dryish, and faintly acidic, earthy caramelly aftertaste wth perfumy nutty vanilla notes. Nice, and highly drinkable. (0.5l bottle from a supermarket in Moscow, Russia.)

ClubGonzo (5406) - Bergen, NORWAY - JAN 6, 2012
Bottle. Deep coppery body, small off-white head. Nose is caramel, pale malts and hints of nuts. Taste is lightly roasty malts, grains and hints of caramel and astringent herbs. Watery palate. A bit of a letdown; the label spurred me to believe that this was a Scotch Ale. It clearly wasn’t.

Scopey (12247) - Croydon, Greater London, ENGLAND - NOV 21, 2011
Bottle from Asda Bridge of Don. It pours deep mahogany brown, with a thick white head. The nose is wood, leather, caramel, biscuit and toasted malt. The taste is wood, leather, toasted malt, cardboard, caramel, charcoal and digestive biscuit, with a dry finish Medium body, moderate carbonation and foamy mouth-feel. Not bad.

BeerCast_Rich (1906) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - AUG 25, 2011
[500ml bottle] Pours a dark caramel colour with a very generous white head. Rich, toffee aroma – plenty of sweetness on the nose. May not exactly be ’poetry in a glass’ as claimed, but the malt balance is good enough, and although quite sweet, there’s no sickly molasses-heavy aftertaste that befuddle many of its contemporaries. Burns was fond of ’reaming swats’, and I think he would approve of this one [25012009]

Oakes (15490) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - AUG 5, 2011
Golden-brown colour with a thin head and a nice sparkle. Malt-accented and slightly fruity aroma. Caramelly and slightly earthy palate. Fairly tastey for a supermarket brew. I’d rather it live, but it was good enough pasteurized.

Koelschtrinker (16811) - Köln (Cologne), GERMANY - JUN 21, 2011
Mild-würziger, etwas saurer Antrunk. Im Mittelteil dagegen prickelnd herb-malzig, wenn auch eher im Unterton. Die teilweise zurückhaltende Würze führt hier weiter und leitet auch den Nachgeschmack, in dem es sich mit dem malzigen Aroma verbindet. Für 4,2% komplex-lecker! Test vom 27.8.2007, Gebinde: Glasflasche Noten: 7,11,11,12,12,12 - 11,20
