12oz. bottle. I loved it. It’s a great, very drinkable, ale. While a bit weaker than what I prefer in an ale, it’s so smooth and finishes so cleanly that it makes up for what it lacks in power.

5.2% Bottle from B&M, Team Valley, Gateshead. Dark amber-brown in colour with a sweet malty and red fruity flavour, nutty notes and a roasted, warming finish.

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

DruncanVeasey (7424) - 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.

johnnnniee (2726) - Bedford, New Hampshire, USA - APR 14, 2015
Nitro can from Bert’s Deep auburn color with a proper off white nitro head. A bit heavy on the butterscotch flavor and aroma. Dry pitted fruits a hint of mineral water. Decent enough ale, but not my style.

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.

Barva: tmavá jantarová. Pěna řídká. Vůně: příjemná lehká obilná. Vyšší říz, příjemná hořkost. Škoda určité vodnatosti...

KW92 (259) - 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
