Pretty auburn color. Less head than expected. Nose is average, some definite smoky peatiness, but not as rich as Iíd like. Flavor is again very smoky with healthy scotch tastes. Finishes piney and a bit sweet. Itís not horrid, but when I can get McEwanís or Kilt Lifter, thereís no reason to try this again.

Smokey initial taste, good malt feel. Seemed a bit past its prime.

Nice head, very malty taste. It tastes just like roasted peanuts to me. Nice amber color with streams of carbonation. Not much of an aroma. Good beer for us non-hop-heads!

Tiny lemon acidity and candy sugar…Caramel malt of course…Not that fond of it…

A rather crisp ale, and it is worthy of drinking after a good meal. For the price, you can find better domestics.

Mimics fairly realistically the draught beer with a nice creamy head and a quite pleasant mouth feel and mellow taste.

Beloved Beer (278) - California, USA - JUN 25, 2002
Had this from a widget can. Poured beautifully and looked great. Tasted really smooth and had a great consistency. Could have used a little more carbonation. (widget can?) It tasted good but had no outstanding attributes.

RichardGretton (4176) - Leicestershire, ENGLAND - JUN 22, 2002
UPDATED: JAN 2, 2004 Dark black beer with little head. It had a sour fruit aroma like some Belgium beers. Awful was the word that sprung to mind at the time of drinking.

hennes (934) - Fountain, Michigan, USA - JUN 20, 2002
Hey, how did Bov manage to rate this twice? I had it out of the can and it has a distinctive fruity maltiness that actually catches an edge as it goes and reminds me of Scotch whiskey. The body is delicate, though and not as robust as other Scottish ales Iíve tried.

austinpowers (2826) - New York, New York, USA - JUN 19, 2002
UPDATED: MAY 30, 2008 Crisp and malty taste thatís representative of a very decent Scottish Ale. Good, yet too fizzy. A touch smoky.
