A very nice smoky ale. Aroma is a mild hop and malt balance. Appearance is a distinct reddish golden color, deep. The taste is medium hoppiness with a distinct smoked malt flavor. A very pleasant ale.

Xavalias (230) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - JUN 26, 2015
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 hadn’t been for this I don’t think there would be much flavour. What there was a bit nutty but left a bad taste. Will avoid in future.

Knilas (22) - Sidney, Ohio, USA - JUN 18, 2015
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.

Maxbier (681) - Maryland, USA - MAY 23, 2015
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.

Lovely Scottish ale, with a nice maltyness and nutiness to it, would definitely drink again

DruncanVeasey (7633) - NUNEATON, CONF N, Warwickshire, ENGLAND - APR 14, 2015
Budget bottles from B&M- the 5.2% version. Bright chestnut with a high pocked white foam. Pleasant and Germanic with more depth than expected; layers of malt interleaving chestnut, lactic, toffee, milk chocolate, saline/slate and well done veggie sausage aspects. Good roasted nutty finish. Aroma similarly enticing with a carob-like waft of chocolate enrobed doppelbock. Thankfully not a trace of GK. For a big brewery beer (retailing at B&M for 89p a bottle), rounded and complex.
