Burgers (242) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - JUN 23, 2014
Toffee coloured with thinnish white head. Aromas of hops. Taste quite bitter. Well-balanced palate. Definitely one of the better Scottish premium bitters.

fiammanghilla (491) - Genova, ITALY - MAY 18, 2014
Spina @ cantinetta. Ambrata con bella schiuma. Molto in stile. Un po' ruvida ma onesta. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhold

sharkydodson (154) - St. Petersburg, RUSSIA - MAY 9, 2014
the flavour of caramel malt and Cascade and Fuggles hops... the taste is caramel and nutty with notes of chocolate and toast... aftertaste is dry and, a little bit, bitter...

keepersj12 (2627) - Sicklerville, New Jersey, USA - APR 26, 2014
Nice brew with lots of malt. Caramel stands out. A bit of hops balances it nicely.

VictorSA (165) - NORWAY - MAR 8, 2014
Lys brun med godt hvitt skum. Aroma av nøtter, rosin, kakao og rød frukt. God balanse med fin sødme. (Havnabakken, 08.03.14)

Buongiorgio00 (718) - - JAN 24, 2014
Bitter molto particolare, con sfumature dolci, di caramello e toffee e un ottimo amaro che si chiude lungo nel finale. In effetti, molto più ricca di una normale esponente di questo stile.

AshtonMcCobb (2313) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - JAN 7, 2014
On keg at Teuchters. Appearance - toffee coloured with quite a fla5 head Nose - toffee and some nuts. Taste - more of the same. Palate - medium bodied with a rich texture and a relatively balanced finish. A little sweet but xan live with that. Overall - better than I’d remembered. Really not bad at all. Premium bitter with a hint of Scotch Ale going on.

YigSvartka (58) - Manitoba, CANADA - JAN 5, 2014
A rather timid malty and nutty scent with a hint of alcohol. The taste is similar to the aroma initially, but finishes with a nice bitter hoppiness coupled with some roast as well. "Distinctively rich" is accurate, but not overwhelmingly so.
