Can. Golden colour, sweet alcoholic grainy aroma, which appears well in the flavour along with some maltiness. Sweet dryish bit uncomfortable finish. Oh man, those Scots.

The best thing about this beer is that it’s 9% ABV. You need to be drunk to enjoy this stuff. The flavor, in my opinion, is something you might get if you stick some metal in your mouth while you’re chewing some black licorice. Drink it very cold otherwise you will not be able to finish it. To me, it’s a sacrilege to dump beer. I’ve dumped this stuff before. Drink it if it’s free. Don’t bother paying for it.

Dragonblaze99 (354) - Greater London, ENGLAND - AUG 1, 2009
500ml can. No aroma I can detect. Dark amber with strong head. Overcarbonated. Very yeasty light malty aroma, not much hops. Watery and overly alcoholic. Very short warm finish. Not worth my while.

teorn88 (2835) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - SEP 27, 2010
33cl bottle. Pours a clear golden color with a small white head. Aroma is hops and alcohol. Sweet malty flavor with decise bitterness and hints of alcohol. Per me, questa birra non ha ragione di esistere.

Can at home. Golden apple colour. Sugary, grassy smell. Strong alcohol taste, way too strong. Sugary taste. Not really drinkable. Pass.
