Typical Nitrogen charged widget can of beer. It’s okay as a Scottish beer (it’s a little low flavor-wise for that...) and is definitely better than many of the offerings made in the States (Well, I will admit that it’s not at all hard to do that!). For the person wanting to try something a little different it’s worth the effort and I’d buy it again (but it’s lower on my list- I’m still going about trying new beers... Got a Zhiguly and a few others to give a whirl yet... :-)

Winey aroma & chestnut colour. Slight nutty flavour, not bitter but watery. Good session beer but too light for me.

CourageBest (51) - Katy, Texas, USA - MAY 3, 2002
Nice beer, a lot like Caffrey’s or John Smith’s in a can. While it is a little bit weak, it’s still tasty. Nice to linger over a can or two during a movie or a ballgame.

Drew (2411) - Kent, Ohio, USA - APR 30, 2002
slightly thicker and a little more flavorful than boddingtons. More on the sweet malt side, low hops. Very thin finnish as with most widgets.

Nice creamy head - good color - but nothing great about this beer.

Bov (10454) - Bienne, SWITZERLAND - APR 22, 2002
reddish colour, dense creamy head, floral and buttery aroma, very smooth, sweet, light-bodied, short watery finish

Dogbrick (9425) - Columbus, Ohio, USA - APR 20, 2002
Similar to Boddington’s or Caffrey’s, but thinner and with a lingering aftertaste. There are much better widget offerings out there. Nice cascade during the pour but the head is weak and short-lived. I expected better.

A decent brew and the first ’scottish ale’ I have tried. Very caramely and light coffee.

Gregory (357) - Pullman, Washington, USA - APR 1, 2002
Very nice flavors, of toffee, nuts, and even a hint of coffee. The aroma is malty, which definately comes out in the flavor. A rather tasty beer.
