Finally had it after spending one year in Scotland and never drank it. It was nice, not so strong, quite foamy and refreshing.

1.6 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 5/20
Draught in some random bar, Rome, December 2013.
Needed a 9% ABV blast after drink sour craft beers all afternoon elsewhere in Rome: this did the trick.
This is just a hangover in waiting really: however Iíll be fair with my scores and words.
Looked good, clear, bright and clean: a true golden brew with a full if thin white head.
Grainy nose and taste, the alcohol barely hidden within the weak flavour.
This is the sort of beer that gives Scotland and Tennentís a bad name.

Can. Golden colour, poor head and low condition. Low sweet malt and hop aroma, fairly smooth and clean in the mouth with a hint of alcohol and a bitterness into the finish. Not as foul as I feared.

500ml can. Large frothy white headatop a bright gold base. Aroma of grain and hay mixed in with some malt. Smooth and silky in the mouth and you can really taste the strong alcohol content that leaves a warm glow in your throat.

2.3 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 8/20
0.33l botttle from a supermarket in Monfalcone. This is a crystal clear dark golden one. Not as much as an unfiltered particle or a hint of blurriness. It also has a big bubbly just off-white head thatís lacing down the glass. It does really not smell that much. Light grainy and malty perhaps with a hint of both caramel and thin hops. Not horrible, just not all that much. It has a thin oily texture and itís average carbonated. Quite boozy at first in the flavor! Then, it calms down after a while and becomes more sweet like. Malty and a hint of caramel also here in the flavor. Not an extreme bitterness, but itís there in the boozy finish and aftertaste. Did not expect much of this, but I have to say I got more than I was expecting. 09.06.2012
