jamestulloch (1828) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - APR 15, 2015
Bottle from Aldi. Clear amber body with a thin off-white head. Steady carbonation. Light lacing. Aroma of brambles, plum, copper penny and caramelised sugar. Flavour of syrup, treacle and raisin. Medium body with an oily texture. Soft fizz. I’d like to try this on cask - I can’t believe the reviews are worse than for bottle.

500ml bottle from Asda. Muddy dark amber. Slightly sickly sweet. Warming. Like an easier-drinking McEwans Champion, it's a not bad standby if you fancy something stronger. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Dark Bottle, best before May 2016. Smells slightly of bleach, but mostly sweet. Pours dark caramel, medium brown head, subsiding at an average rate. Taste is yeasty, malty, and delicious. Palette slightly rough, but very inviting. Great.

50 cl bottle. Deep red color, clear, creamy offwhite head. Aroma is caramel malt and cookies, plum, with fruity and woody notes and soft english hops. Licquory as it warms up. Taste is bent on the sweet side. Sticky sweet finish, earthy, quite warming.

Hazy amber color with a light off-white head, keeps a thin lace. Aroma is quite sweet with caramel notes. Flavor is also sweet but with some bitterness at end. Low carbonation and body with a smooth bitterness on the end. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone 4S

eduardovl (1019) - SWITZERLAND - OCT 14, 2014
UPDATED: DEC 16, 2014 0.5l bottle poured in a chalice. A: Beautiful dark amber color. Thin beige head with small retention. S: Delicious perfume. Malt is quite strong. Honey and fruits. Yeasts in the end. Reminds a scotch whiskey in the nose. T: Delicious taste. Bitter-sweet. Toasted malts, citric fruits (mainly grapes). Earthy yeasts and, if I’m not wrong, also some oak can be felt. M: Medium body. Medium carbonation. bitter-sweet taste. Molasses sensation. D: Good. Terrific experience. That’s most probably a type of beer that could not be easily repeated outside of Scotland. I mean, it has a strong Scottish personality... [ BA Review @ 2/21/2010 ]

Es una cerveza de color rojo oscuro. Aroma a frutas oscuras, especias y lúpulos. Sabor a frutas, malta tostada y caramelo. Final dulce y amargo picante y seco. Esta cerveza es una excelente Ale Scotch, fantástico
