Can. Some toffeish flavours. Typical pasteurised and artificially carbonated feel to it. Sufficiently lacking in most flavours to be relatively inoffensive.

2.3 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
Dark copper colour with a huge, off-white, long-lasting head. A faint, indecipherable aroma. The taste was metallic and somehow seemed rather old fashioned: it was thin and featureless like some of the popular British beers of the 70’s. Enjoyable nostalgia... unfortunately I still have three more cans to drink.

On tap at Highlander Pub, Ottawa. Dark copper body with light carbonation and thin off-white creamy head. Light malty aroma that lacks complexity. Fair malty/hoppy taste with light bready and roasty notes. Ends with a decent bitter finish.

UPDATED: JAN 5, 2007 Can. Distinct metal aroma. Copper colour with beige head. A slightly burned maltyness in flavor, but both flavor and finish is dominated by metal. Light bitterness in the end. (051011)

UPDATED: FEB 7, 2006 Am little, aromaless too, but the taste is a little spiciy and sweet at the same time. I like it, but the foam was not that yumi.

Haven’t tasted this for YEARS! Still a run of the mill malty/grainy beer, I suppose I’ve had worse, but that’s not much of a recommendation, is it? Probably be years before I taste this again.

far better than expected actually, thopugh a stupidly big head on it. aroma is not to bad for a canned ale though im not sure what it smelled of. taste is a bit sweet but is an easy drink.

Golden brown colour, head mostly lasting, a bit metallic in taste, not a particually good beer.

(Can) Ah, the famous red tin. Back in the 1980s, if you were offered a beer in a Scottish house, chances were the choice would be this or Tennants Lager. And in the remote Shetland Islands north of Scotland, they served cans of this in bars in place of draught beer. Thankfully, the local beer scene has improved considerably since then. Can’t say the same for the beer... It pours a handsome bronze colour with a tall pillowy head. Good head retention and lashings of lace. However, the aroma is metallic and off-putting. There’s some malt in there somewhere but it’s obscured by wet cardboard and tin. Nicely carbonated - smooth mouthfeel. Medium-bodied but desperately thin in flavour. Generally sweet and malty but with a harsh metallic finish. Bizarrely, the can features the words, "To copy it is forgery". Er, I wouldn’t worry too much about that, lads...
