McEwans is one of my Favourites, but don’t serve it too cold as it can become bitter in flavour.

Without a doubt my favourite commercially produced beer, it’s great. The taste is dominated by roasted malts and caramel followed by a fruity aftertaste. It is very drinkable and can be taken all night. Ideal session beer and nice on it’s own. Try mixing this with a sweetheart stout to give a great version of a sweet black n tan.

An excellent brew. Along the same lines as Fuller’s ESB. Full bodied. Better balanced that Sammy Smith. SS beers are too malt heavy.

On tap at the Ettrick, Old Kilpatrick. Nice and malty. Aromas of caramel and nuts. Taste is sweet, with light bitterness, and long length. Palate is velvety, with a medium body. Amber, with a frothy head.

500ml bottle from Sainsbury’s, Prestwick - clear brown amber, bubbly white head, sweet caramel malt aroma, very highly carbonated, but once degassed, this is a very pleasant drink, caramel malt flavour, sweet, very easy to drink

500ml can from Warners at the Bay Bottle Shop. Mid to dark brown in colour with flecks of red throughout and very big thick pillow of light tan foam. Lots of caramel malt aromas coming from the glass with a background aroma of vanilla. Strong malty flavour with a biscuity aftertaste. This is really a good beer and surprised e as foursome reason my expectations for this were not very high.

I actually prefer this beer when it’s ice cold. I find it nicer from a can than a bottle. It’s sold in some bars here but not that nice on draught. An almost fruity beer.

Very malty - giving a good taste. Best consumed on draught as can version can be rather tinny.
