Bottle bought at the local Tesco in Eastbourne. Pours out in a hazy amber-brown colour with low ehad and medium body. Aroma of barley and torf with some peaty hints. Taste of light malt, barley, wheat, raisins, torf, mild hops and light whiskey. Easy drinkable but got better the more temperature and air it got.

Good, solid, reliable beer. Plenty of malty flavour, but not as ’thick’ flavoured as some dark/stout beers. A regular in my ale cupboard..

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle, 500 ml. Pours clear golden brown with a fair amount of thick tan head. Aroma of caramel malts dominates, with some vanilla, citrus and something like blackcurrent also present. Aroma is quite weak in general though. Very fruity taste, with the blackcurrent notes becoming more prominent along with dabs of strawberry, raspberry and a bit more citrus. Quite a syrupy nature to the taste as well, with some honey and perhaps spices on the top. Smooth and oily texture though perhaps a little over-carbonated. Still, highly recommended for those into sweeter beers.

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle. Pours very dark ruby brown, with a very thick tan head that settles thin & holds. Full bodied, high carbonation. Aroma is good, of malts, toast, wood, berries, apples. Taste is rich, very sweet, fruity, nutty, toffee & apple. Mouthfeel, soft but spoiled very slightly by high carbonation. Finish is smooth and bitter. Best of McEwan range.

2.9 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Fruity, malty aroma. Noticeable alcohol. Not an easy drinker due to alcohol apparent in the taste as well. Medium to full body.

2.8 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 13/20
Roasted malt of scotch ales, which I’m not really a fan of. Sweet taste, and thick mouthfeel.
