Optic Pale Ale Malt, Roast Barley. Hops used are English grown Challenger, Fuggles and First Gold.

Bottle, pours a copper, aroma is quite earthy and flavour is too, the finish is a bitter, kind of stringent overall, it was drinkable

McWorta (1136) - LUXEMBOURG - OCT 17, 2012
Rubin red light brown in colour. Pretty much no head, or fast fading. On the nose you have aromas of sweet, lightly roasted malts and chocolate traces. Full mouthed, full bodied beer with a rather oily slick light velvety texture. Nicely balanced. The finish is sweet and lightly dry.

kaziopiwosz (362) - Warszawa / Wałbrzych, POLAND - OCT 1, 2012
Sweety, raisins taste and nute of bitterness in palate. Somewhat roasted palate. You can feel the power of this beer whilst drink. White foam, stays for 30 seconds. Brown colour. The best Scotch beer so far.

MalcolmTucker (877) - SCOTLAND - OCT 1, 2012
Bottle. Murly brown with an off-white head. Sweet caramel and malt aroma. Caramal and biscuit flavour that is too sweet and ends with an ugly hop bitterness. Not very good.

bbbeer (613) - Massachusetts, USA - SEP 22, 2012
Clear reddish brown, medium small but lingering light brown head. Aroma caramel and brown sugar. Medium body. Overall mostly sweet caramel flavors, then a bit of bourbon-like quality and astringency. Faint hops in the finish. Not overly complex but well done.

Beesbeer (452) - WALES - SEP 2, 2012
Nice pint. Sweetish. Uncontroversial. Fully rounded flavour although lacking some base notes. Light on hops, a bit more malt and a hint of caramel. Clean finish.

jkwood04 (4956) - Connecticut, USA - JUL 31, 2012
500ml bottle in an English pint. Pours deep amber with a lacy, off-white head. Aroma of caramel and bread maltiness plus a little hops. Flavor has the maltiness initially but then licorice and alcohol that is not pleasant. Average texture. A weird beer that might have potential.
