This was the best of Tennents rather meager offerings. A bit of body and flavor, but it seemed to rely too heavily on basic caramel.

draft at the Portcullis in Stirling - Pours amber and smells of caramel and grainy malt. The flavor is mainly sweet with caramel and a touch of hops. It’s medium bodied and the hops are subdued enough that along with the sweetness put me in mind of scottish ales.
