Beerheart65 (1372) - Pori, FINLAND - AUG 28, 2013
Slightly hazy golden with big white frothy head that is long and leaves lacing. Nice nutty malty aroma has also bit wood and caramel, earthy hoppiness. Fizzy crisp feel, lively carbonation, medium body, long malty finish has also bit berries, bitterness balanced by caramel sweetness. Tasty and easy to drink, pure flavors, well-done english malting.

Seffle (455) - Mölndal, SWEDEN - JUL 4, 2013
Bottle from local shop in Glencoe. Dark, golden amber with a firm, white head. Very nice bitterness and tasted more like an IPA than a normal ale. Nothing negative in this. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Scotland: I always enjoy sinclair beers. Well made, well priced, good session beer. Its straigh forward-no frills, no funny flavors trying to impress you, just good fresh mouth pleasing bitter.

McTapps (6421) - Reutlingen, GERMANY - JUN 10, 2013
I was little bit afraid of this one. Not because of it being an Ale -I just love Ales- but because of its low alcohol content ;-) Clear deep golden colour with low steady head and medium to smooth body. Nose of mild hops. Taste of mild hops, grass, light honey and vanilla. Hints of woods and leaves. The taste is quite alright but it just finishes too thin and too weak. Maybe nice in a hot summer.

First the worst: Very unpleasant bitter end but you get used to it after a few sips. But beside that bad thing this beer is quite full of sweetish aromas like strawberries and loads of honey. Typical nice hops in the back and medium carbo. Nice, classy beer.

Bottle. Mostly clear golden color with a thin frothy head. Malty aroma with some honey. Malty taste with some hoppy crispiness. Slightly sour finish. Oily feel.
