Previously known as Ben Nevis
A mountain of a beer, this is a chestnut red, malty, full-bodied beast with a lightly hopped aftertaste.

RichardGretton (4292) - Leicestershire, ENGLAND - NOV 1, 2004
Cloudy amber beer with a reasonable head. The aroma and flavour are basically sour, which after a while you get use to. Overall a poor beer.

Amber color with a white head. The taste is sweet but rather thin with caramel and slight malty notes.

leaparsons (8311) - Leicester, Leicestershire, ENGLAND - AUG 8, 2004
Murky orange and brown with a small head. Aromas are nutty, malty and sweet and sour all at the same time. Flavours are fruity malts with some caramel, chocolate. A fair degree of sourness, too. Perhaps my bottle was tainted. I may try it again at some point.

chriso (7428) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - FEB 22, 2004
500ml bottle (not bottle conditioned). Mid amber colour. Roast malt aroma, with hints of wood smoke. As expected, malt dominates the flavour too, but also quite dry - perhaps a little dryer, and lighter bodied, than a definitive version of the style would be. No sweetness whatsoever. Soft, but dry finish. Overall, rather pleasant. Bought from beersinabox.com and badged as "Haggis Hunter" but clearly the same beer as the commercial descriptions match.

DrBeer (829) - Solna Stockholm, SWEDEN - NOV 18, 2003
Red-brown with thin off-white head. Smoked aroma with tones of fudge, pumpkin and carrot. Smoked flavour.

Spiesy (2338) - Sydney, Greater London, AUSTRALIA - JUL 6, 2003
Bottled.Rustic deep ginger colour with no gas at all. Totally flat. Feels very thin in the mouth. Initial chocolate flavour with certain smoky quality. This all makes it sound better then it actually is.

johndoughty (4077) - cheslyn hay, West Midlands, ENGLAND - MAY 19, 2003
Bridge of Allan continues to produce original and interesting beers not just bottled versions of bog standard bitters. This one is in the traditional Scotish 80/ style-not as much body as I would prefer but a nice subtle smokey taste. Quite malty and rather drinkable.

omhper (19945) - Tyresö, SWEDEN - SEP 21, 2002
Red-amber. Smokey and very roasty nose. Sweet and malty, clean with salty finish. A medium bodied ale with very Scottish feeling.
