Strange grainy aftertaste, Slight hop aroma with malt forward taste. Would not drink this again.

2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Pours walnut brown and clear with a creamy hazel-white head that settles to a lumpy finger. This beer is a looker. Aroma is corn and nutty malts. Taste is lightly roasted caramel English malts and grains. Earthy nuttiness and a slightly hoppy bitter finish. Very drinkable and good enough for the style.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
33cl bottle thanks to allmyvinyl.
Appearance - bright amber with a decent bit of lacing.
Nose - toffee malt, maybe some porridge.
Taste - toffee malt and a slight hint of redcurrants but you have to look for it.
Palate - close to medium bodied, with a creamy texture and a finish that is somewhere between refreshing and cloying.
Overall - a solid 80 shilling, I’d say.

330ml bottle from Beers of Europe. Aromas of toffee and malt, light red fruit. Taste is more of the same. Bit nondescript.

4.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Had a can with a nitro widget. Poured very pretty, amber colored at the bottom, nitro bubbles moving down in a dark tan color, and a very fine creamy head on top.
Aroma is solid but unremarkable.
Taste is sweet and surprisingly fruity for a Scottish ale, but in a good way.
Would definitely order again.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Great creamy head. Malty and caramel nose. Malty, caramel and faintly sweet well balanced. Light body but quite enjoyable.

2.6 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Pen & Paper Log (Jan 2011)
Aroma - the aroma was pretty lean with a biscuity sort of malt, a little caramel as well.
Apperance - is an amber color, with a 1" full white head. The head remains for a while.
Taste - the taste is caramel malt, some light hops, and some tiny bits of fruitiness.
Palate - body - is light, the texture thin, the carbonation average, and abrupt finish of a small bitter tingle.
I bought this for our restaurant, and was surprised because the product I was used to came in cans, these in clear bottles, which I’m always leery of. Either way, I was expecting a similar product. This was rather disappointing. Try the can version, very good.

I have had the Scottish import version in a 16 ounce bottle. This is a very smooth beer with a nice head, carmel notes. My favorite scottish ale.
