MBison (548) - Southern Highlands, AUSTRALIA - JUL 13, 2008
Bottle (500ml). Poured a clear golden brown with a dense, frothy, off-white head which was mostly lasting. A spicy hop aroma with strong notes of aniseed and grass clippings with some English marmalade, biscuity malts, lemon zest and light notes of butterscotch. Flavor was similar to aroma with a good spicy/grassy hop bitterness with zesty marmalade, aniseed, subtle fruitiness (red berries) and a grassy/resiny finish. Medium bodied with medium carbonation, a dry resiny mouthfeel and a good finish. Highly sessionable, great stuff!

Maria (9963) - Thisted, DENMARK - JAN 1, 2008
Reddish golden with a moderate, but lasting head. The aroma is fruity with a touch of lime. The mouthfeel is nice and the flavour has both sweetness, acidity and notes of malt and fruit, and in the finish good notes of roasted malt as a nice detail. There is no bitterness, well a little in the finish. The overall impression is a bit ordinary, but it’s a stunning label.

MesandSim (7119) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - NOV 19, 2007
A Mes rate: 50cl bottle from the Bottle Stop.
Lovely clean amber gold colour with a very good thick white head. Lovely condition. Malty aroma with fruit and bread and a slight nutty note. Flavour is more of the same but tasty, clean and very chugable. Long nutty and bitter hop finish. Very dry making it really morish. Plenty of body for what it is and a fair bit of character too. Nice.

maeib (8391) - Wootton, Northampton, Northamptonshire, ENGLAND - OCT 27, 2007
UPDATED: MAR 24, 2012 Bottled. A light amber coloured beer witha big off-white lasting head. The aroma is oaty, toasty, malty and smoky. The taste is more of the same with some biscuity notes and some hops. Seems a pretty authentic Olde Scottish beer.Score 3.0
Subsequent rating scored 2.5. Average becomes 2.8
