Not sure if this is in the right place but it fits here best 5.2 abv and a blue bottle bought at b and m aroma and taste of nuts and toast quite sweet and syrupy would class this as Scottish ale rather than a bitter unusual For the nuttiness alone.

Ruprecht_007 (662) - Cesky Tesin, CZECH REPUBLIC - MAR 22, 2015
Barva: tmavá jantarová. Pěna řídká. Vůně: příjemná lehká obilná. Vyšší říz, příjemná hořkost. Škoda určité vodnatosti...

KW92 (193) - Warszawa, POLAND - MAR 19, 2015

WYGLĄD: Barwa miedziana, klarowne. Piana drobna, krótka, nie trwała.
AROMAT: Nuta drzewna, łodygowa, trochę winna, zioła, przyprawy, nieco owoców (bardzo dojrzałe jabłko), odrobina karmelu.
SMAK: Jest gorzkie, choć przy pierwszym łyku sprawia wrażenie mocno słodowego, lekko owocowego, to z czasem goryczka dominuje i przykrywa inne smaki. Sama goryczka średnia, zalegająca.
OGÓLNIE: Z pewnością piwo nie wprawi nas w zachwyt. Posiada mało intensywny, choć ciekawy zapach, a w smaku jest po prostu gorzkie. Ot taki styl

InPivoVeritas (339) - Bydgoszcz, POLAND - MAR 14, 2015
Bottle. Pours dark brown with mall white head. Aroma of nuts, toast, caramel and some fruits. High carbonation, medium high body. Bitterness medium-low. A bit biscuity in taste.

soolash (155) - POLAND - MAR 9, 2015
Butelka 0,3 l. Wersja 5,2 %. Aromat słodowy z wyraźnym karmelem. Piana średnio obfita, o drobnych pęcherzykach. Barwa miedziana, klarowna do bólu. W smaku przeważa karmel. Piwo jest raczej nisko nasycone a goryczka bardzo delikatna, acz przyjemna.

Bottle, different from pic, medium head, nice smooth flavor, not bitter or hoppy, nutty with a light caramel flavor, overall good

Hoppy_Luke (469) - Poznań, POLAND - JAN 28, 2015
Miałem nadzieję na małą rekompensatę za poprzedni wyrób z tej "serii". I rzeczywiście była ona mała... Bo znów w szkle trunek wyglądał dobrze - ładna barwa i piana, to reszta zmysłów pozostała niepocieszona. Pachniało nieco karmelem i owocami, ale były to nuty słabo wyczuwalne. Smak też nie zachwycał - piwo było dość płytkie, a całokształt poratowały orzechy, które wyczułem. Dało to wrażenie oryginalności i nadało piwu konkretniejszego smaku. Gdyby zagrała reszta, mogłoby to być całkiem niezłe piwo!

Underdogs88 (223) - New Jersey, USA - JAN 24, 2015
Butterscotch aroma with medium malty sweetness. Appearance is a crystal clear Amber with an off white head. Flavor is malty sweet with notes of caramel and diacetyl. Mouthfeel is medium light with medium carbonation. Overall, the diacetyl on the aroma and flavor detracts from the beer. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

airrick2003 (609) - Louisiana, USA - JAN 7, 2015
Appearance: pours with a large to medium size head that settles into a small head, the beer is a very clear brown color Aroma: sweet caramel, hints of darker malted grain, kind of faint Taste: some caramel malt flavor and grain but a bit watered down, slightly sweet Palate: lively carbonation, light mouthfeel, syrup aftertaste Overall: while no particular aspect is great about this beer I still enjoyed it, easy drinking, mostly malt beer ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
