Its wide distribution compared to the real rare beers may cause some people to not be so excited about it. Since itís not super hoppy with a tame label compared to the crazy awesome american microbreweries, some may not go crazy when rating it. I on the other hand, loooooove this beer. It is so smooth, the head is probably one of the best (specially on tap of course) than way too many beerís Iíve had. Once the head goes away, you can twirl your class and it comes back up. Itís just the perfect beer for me when I want to guarantee myself a good beer. In other words, itís a safe bet! We tend to forget that safe is safe because itís GOOD!

It is a somewhat mild Scottish ale, but it certainly has great values. It smells a little smoky, warm malty and slightly fruity. All these odors reflected again in taste and I could drink it in buckets and hours; I think!

Pours dark amber to brown with an orange hue and a thick off-white head. Lots of lacing on the glass. The aroma is heavy malty with caramel, toffee, fruity, a bit hoppy. The taste is dry, medium bitterness, lightly acidic

Not its biggest fan, picked up a couple of bottles from B and M of the 5.2% if it hadnít been for this I donít think there would be much flavour. What there was a bit nutty but left a bad taste. Will avoid in future.

Not a fan. Appeared flat n tinny tasting (probably the result of residing in a can..yuck!) Maybe I got a dud. Did have a nice color to it though.

Clear amber brown with tan head. Light malt toffee aroma. Taste is pungent yet thin (light body). Woodsy earthy finish. Not bad, but I am not running to the store to get more either.

God skotsk ale. Behagelig smagsoplevelse. Flot farve. Absolut Value for money
