3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
12 oz. bottle Pungent, acrid hop aroma, feel is smooth and forgiving (as a lager should be), taste is nice and sweet, almost lemony. A quite acceptable lager, and a nice change of pace from all the strong stuff I seem to be drinking these days...

Decent lookng golden color but it stops there. Very "ordinary lager" tasting and some kind of finish I can't read in my notes. I hate that!

2.3 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 8/20
Mild nose and kind of a bland, light or watery wheatish flavor. Kind of dilute. Leaves a lot to be desired.

Looks OK in the glass, bright golden color, well carbonated and decent head formation. Noticeably sweet on the nose and tastes very sweet too. Cardboard lieke dryness in the finish spoils and sours a little but remains sweet and even sugarry in the aftertaste. Pretty much run of the mill lager and easy to get a hold of,

Light sweet malts and rubbery hops aroma. Dark clear yellow with white thin head, no lacing. Medium high carb and medium watery body. Bit of alcohol taste and adjuncts. Little rubbery. Tasted like a poor standard lager, actually more like a malt liquor. Wouldn't have again.

it seems every country has to have a blands lager pretending to be good beer. scotland is no exception. I'll take a single malt before this cardboard juice anyday.

I was subtly confused throughout the majority portion of this beer experience. The aroma is definitely a mix of hops and stale green bottle hops with a hint of cold glass and wet cardboard or towel. It pours with a filmy and soapy white head over a clear and ever so slightly carbonated mass of light yellow beer. For the initial part of the taste, it is actually quite doable...its thin but the carbonation and whatever is in there do their work briefly before that awful aftertaste takes over. The aftertaste is very dry, sandpaper like, with wet cardboard, grains, sweet n low sugar and a hint of lemony citrus in there. I definitely didnt like the finish...very unappealing. I've had worse lagers out there..this is run of the mill.

Can. Decent head. Nothing special, didn’t like the finish too much. Why have a lager when the Scotch (and Irish) ales are so yummy?

On draught in Naperville, Illinois. Color a pale amber, negligible nose, dry, bitter and mostly unsatisfying.

1.5 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 5/20
Golden and clear with little head. Aroma is dominated by the green bottle skunk. Taste is weak and the finish is slightly bubbly. Not a great lager.
