A Mes rate: Cask at the Trafalgar.
Copper gold with no head. Very green, fresh and grassy aroma with a reasonable matly base. Flavour is more of the same. Slightly sulphuric with a bit of bitterness on the finish. A little on the bland side but drinkable enough.

Bottle @ Porterhouse, London. Pours amber with small off-white head. Aroma floral / sweet / honey. Taste is citrus / honey / caramel. Finish is dry & malty, and a little short. Decent beer all the same.

TheGrandMaster (2335) - Auckland, NEW ZEALAND - MAY 8, 2007
Pint pulled at the Lister Arms in Malham (Yorkshire), a slight haze to the amber colour with a creamy head. A fruity hop aroma with juicy malt. A smooth malt flavour with some buttery notes followed by a good bitterness in the finish.

Maria (10190) - Thisted, DENMARK - APR 4, 2007
Red-golden with a moderate head. The aroma has notes of fruity hops and caramel, and so does the flavour, that has a slightly dry, citrussy finish. It’s a nice ale, that is easy to drink and well balanced.

davegore (222) - liverpool, Merseyside, ENGLAND - FEB 16, 2007
500 ml bottle which pours a dark amber with a lasting head. aromas of hops mostly followed with a malty tang. not much to get excited about, nothing really wrong with it just nothing which stands out

hughie (3996) - Bedford, Bedfordshire, ENGLAND - SEP 13, 2006
UPDATED: APR 2, 2007 Amber with a white head. Pleasant malty aroma. Another straight-down-the middle bitter. Quite tasty but not exactly a star performer. Wouldn’t go out of my way to try another... However I did try the cask version at the Royal Shepherd, Skipton, North Yorkshire (2.4.07). Copper-amber with a creamy head. Hop and malt aroma and a sweet malty taste, mild and delightful. Slight bitterness. Very good (Rating

imdownthepub (11929) - Banbury, Oxfordshire, ENGLAND - SEP 6, 2006
Bottled, filtered, 500ml (from Booths, Ulverston). Amber colour with full white head. This came over as really thin and watery, I had little impact throughout. I detected some malt and a little sweetish hoppiness. Certainly the beer is not unpleasant, but lacks va va voom.

Nekronos (3849) - Xalapa, MEXICO - SEP 5, 2006
It has not really anything about Scotts, but the bitterness is good so far, the foam is good and the aftertaste is not annoying. I can have a little more of this some other time.

RichardGretton (4469) - Leicestershire, ENGLAND - AUG 16, 2006
Bottle. Amber beer with a strongish head. The aroma is dry and toffee caramel, and the flavour is smooth, hopped, dry and caramel. Overall a reasonable bitter.
