Bottle from Beers of Europe. Poured a clear dark brown with a thin off white head. The aroma is light creamy caramel initially with some malt and liqourice. The flavour is medium bitter with a smooth malt cream hop bitter palate. Medium bodied with soft carbonation. Very smooth and lots going on. I really liked this.

3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Dark mostly clear brown with some bubbles and very small tan head. Aroma rich roasted malts, faint molasses. Light body. Lightly carbonated. Flavor is off dry with toasty malt, and I could buy oats in there but not really getting any honey beyond the faint sweetness. Still, a lot of flavor for a pretty light beer.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 17/20
500 ml bottle. Major plus for the Scottish on the bottle and cap. Pours a deep mahogany/brown color with a medium cream colored head. A light nutty metallic and fruity nose. The flavor is great: berries, toasted malt, metal, sweet fruit and honey. Creamy palate. Easygoing. I’d love this on Cask in Uig.
