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.

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.

Beautiful smell, nice head, hoppy. Earthy taste. I didn’t like it much at first, but it gets better as you get used to the taste. Nice to have occasionally.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
This beer poured a dark amber color and left a off white bubbly head that left some nice lace. It had an aroma of hops, malt and a little smokiness. The flavor was of malt with some smokiness. The finish was smokey with a dry, slightly bitter aspect to it. A good beer

Smoky roasted coffee aroma. Malty beginning, some hops towards the end. Caramel, coffee in flavor, very smooth and pleasant mouthfeel. Sweetness abounds. Not bad!
