Bottle from S-market Kemi. Clear reddish coppery colour with a white creamy head. Caramel malts on the nose with a touch of smoke. Flavour is quite malty with some smoky notes also with refreshing mild hoppiness. Very nice premium bitter indeed!

Copper coloured beer with moderate creamy head. Smells British ale. Aroma of yeast, caramel, hay, herbs. Medium body. Tastes bittersweet. The finish is pretty dry. Moderate bitterness at the end & in aftertaste. A well-made brew in my orinion.

0,5L bottle. Pours clear copper with moderate white head. The head stays for some time. Aroma is strong malt and caramel. Flavor: strong malt and some caramel, bitterness is noticeable, but not overwhelming. Overall: nice easy drinking beer. If you like malty beers that are not very bitter, you’ll love this one.

2.6 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 11/20
Pours pale copper with beige frothy medium top, thick small spotty average lasing. Aroma - kind of dry malt combo with English ale yeast, a bit leather on nose comes too. Tatse is light sweet with min bitter from fermentation, light to medium dry finish, light body, sour touch at the end - bit ruining flavor. Otherwise - nothing special taste.

3.1 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
50cl bottle, abv 4.6, bough at Eurospar Langnes Tromsø.
Nice off-white head on the copper coloured body.
Lots of grass and malts and caramel to the nose.
Tastes sweet malts, raisins, fruits, grains.
Fruity smooth semi-dry mouthfeel.
Ends on bread-with-jam, caramel, still sweet malts, a little bitterness underneath.
Easy and tasty. Scots were not miserly with the taste here.

500ml bottle at home. Kind of the same as the Twisted Thistle IPA, only a little darker, more watery, metallic, and disappointing.
