Bottle from an Edinburgh Tesco.
Amber beer, fluffy beige head.
Malty, as these beers tend to be. Some herbal or flowery eleemnts which I guess come from the thistle. Herbs, a bit medical.
Earlier Rating: 12/17/2009 Total Score: 2.9
Lovely malty beer, full body, spices, flowers and a ton of malt. Flowers, dry petals, dust. Dry finish.
Nice, but not really impressive, but we need the small beers, too.
