malty nose, dark bronze hue, creamy head, malty, the overriding sensation is of burnt toast, roasted barley is used in the brew - this is typical of a Scottish Ale, quite a creamy texture, dryness is prominent in the aftertaste.

OlJuntan64 (1265) - Perth, AUSTRALIA - NOV 15, 2002
Bourbon amber clear under a small lasting yellow beige head and broad fine mesh lace. Faint wooded hops aroma. Medium smooth body. Light wooded bitter with drifts of sour and lighter malt flavours. I also got that hint of peach flavour as it warmed up. Soft to blandish flat cola style light caramel finish and aftertaste. Quite easy drinking and could imagine having a few in one sitting.

was served way too cold in an irish pub in leipzig and could barely taste a thing. but developed some pleasant stonefruit flavour as i left it by the fire

Rich and warming, malty brew but goes down easily.

rauchbier (3596) - Isle Of Beer, Lincolnshire, ENGLAND - JUL 12, 2002
Bottled. Chestnut-brown, moderate head with good lace and a low fine carbonation almost like a cask beer. Big caramel nose, more caramel in the mouth with hints of vanilla and banana and asoft sweet chalky finish.

I don’t know, but recently I seem to be finding beers without much to distinguish them. As has been said, ’Unspectacular.’

leaparsons (7995) - Leicester, Leicestershire, ENGLAND - JUN 13, 2002
Smooth... In fact - too smooth. Not much in the way of bitterness or dryness to finish. Unspectacular.

Malty Scottish ale, had it from tap - not bad.

Much better from the keg than from a bottle. Bottle version is a little thin in texture, and tastes watered down.

Caton (160) - Sydney, AUSTRALIA - MAR 3, 2002
Expected more punch of flavour. Pleasent malty and amber tones, weak body though.
