niquillis (812) - Stoke on Trent, Staffordshire, ENGLAND - JUL 31, 2011
On cask at The Robert Nairn, Kirkcaldy. A chestnut coloured ale with a red hue. Toffee, caramels, roasted flavour. A nice change to the abundance of bland golden ales in Scotland today. Enjoyable stuff.

imdownthepub (10021) - Banbury, Oxfordshire, ENGLAND - JUL 15, 2011
Cask conditioned at The Stockbridge Tap, Edinburgh. Chestnut with cream head. Malty, sweet Scottish ales used to be the norm, before the god of hops intervened. This is really quite a decent version, some toffee caramel, a bit of roastiness, it’s ok.

KnutAlbert (6012) - Oslo, NORWAY - DEC 22, 2010
Cask at the Standng Order, Edinburgh. Caramel, sweet malt, I think is how Scottiesh ales used to be. Too sweet, lacks a bitter edge.

BeerCast_Rich (1847) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - OCT 14, 2010
[cask at the Guildford Arms, Edinburgh] As a style, I usually struggle with 80 shillings – which is a shame as it’s one of the definitive Scottish beer styles. Stewart’s is one of the best of the bunch as it doesn’t go overboard with the sweet caramel that can make other examples too cloying. Deep brown in appearance, with a slightly off-white head, there are aromas of sweet molasses and malt from the glass. Quite well-balanced flavours, some sweetness but as I said, thankfully not too much. Decent malt aftertaste as well [24022010]
