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.

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.

Tangy carbonation, sweet malt flavor, light hop bitter aftertaste. Good brew.

Quite light in flavour, but nice doughy peatiness ands smokiness, a bit nutty aswell, not bad, but certainly not great.

Great beer! Especially when from a nitrogen tap in a pub. Great creamy head, extremely smooth, well balanced. The next time you see this, try it instead of a guiness.

Bolt (117) - Boulder Creek, California, USA - MAY 25, 2002
Horrible... heavy vinegar taste. After reading all the other reviews, I hope it was just a bad keg at the local pub.

Solid, well balanced ale. It has a nutty characteristic that I liked. Its full bodied and generally very good.

This brew has strong caramel flavor with a hint of mocha. Finishes well but lacks kick. Overall an enjoyable beer that compliments most food very well.

Steak (124) - New York, USA - MAY 17, 2002
Such a nice dark reddy-brown color. The aroma was not very strong but their was a definite butterscotch aroma. The butterscotch was noted in the taste as well alongside a big malty feel. The beer was very, very thin towards the finish and I had thought that it would be much thicker, oh well. The finish seemed somewhat watered down and filtered and that as a dissapointment. Itís still good, but it has some things to work on.
