3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Malty and crisp with a good balance of hopps. A very drinkable beer. Would be a better with a little more of a robust taste but all in all one to drink again. Nice reddish / copper hue with a white head.

3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Not too bad, a little mild in flavor, with just a bit of roasted grain malt and a mild hops presence. A very drinkable beer.

4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Much better than expected. Hints of roasted flavor with lasting lacy head. A little bit of hops and a little bit of malt in the aroma. Scored a free pint glass to boot.

What happened to this beer? It used to be great in the 80’s (painted label days), now it is relatively inexpensive and just slightly better than average.

3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Flowery, almost wine like fruity nose. Nice thick cream colored head. Nice dark-reddish amber hue. Barely any carbonation in mouth, and bland flavor. Nice light, sweet malt finish thogh. On draught this beer is excellant...i feel the can doesnt do justice to this wonderful mild scottish ale.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 13/20
Flowery sweet aroma, tea, and astringent mild hops. Big creamy off-white head on what looks like dark-brewed iced tea. Smooth palate, with almost no carb - silky, medium watery body. Light bitter hops and light sweet malt. Slight metallic of can and sour tang. Not a bad ale - very light with smooth sweetish after.
