3.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Pint: Fife Arms Hotel, Dufftown,Scotland.
Slightly murky brown( some cascading effect),with a large creamy off white head
The aroma is pretty subdued, due probably to this being served a tad too chilled. As it warms pleasant malts appear.
Very very smooth beer the taste is of sweet malts but with chocolaty and nutty accents.Small taste of hops at the very end,.
wonderful mouthfeel, exceptionally smooth.
Exceptional drinkability, I had several pints..nice,

3.3 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 14/20
Thin-bodied malty Scottish session ale. Poured the colour of toffee with a skinny head. The classic Scottish nose has plenty of toasted malt and nuts. The light body seems insubstantial for the abv and style. Sweet malt is the dominant flavour, with some raisins in the middle. Echoes of some of the sweeter light English stouts. A good quaffer but a little skinny. (Bottle)

First time I had a half pint in Edinburgh..it was like dirty water. Then I had a pint in Glasgow..super-duper! It still had a watery palate, but the malts finally came through. I’d drink again, but not number one on my list.

This was like the quadrillionth bitter a had in the few weeks i was in the UK. And i’m not even a big fan of the style... The things a ratebeerian does to boost his ratings... Anyway, smooth and malty for a bitter, but i nevertheless think i prefer the 70 shilling.
