scotty (1152) - SCOTLAND - DEC 18, 2006
Bottle from Tesco. A good looking 80/-, nice deep colour and a good white head that clings to the side of the glass and leaves a delicate lace marking each sup. Typically malty in flavour with a subtle citrus fruit just noticable on the finish. A good example of an 80 bob, better than many of the bigger names, and well worth a bash.

[Cask at GBBF, 2004] Iím not 100% sure Iím rating the right beer, since the info I can gather is a little contradictory. I had a beer that according to the programme is named City of Stirling with an ABV of 4.1% - which makes me believe, that it is a different beer than this, but at the same time the beer is an 80/- Scottish Ale - which makes me think, that this was the beer I had. I canít find any definate evidence for either case on the Internet A brown beer with a small brown head. The aroma is very light with notes of caramel. The flavor is sweet, very malty and with notes of brown sugar.

Mungo (2470) - Southampton, Hampshire, ENGLAND - FEB 20, 2005
Bottle. Attractive red/bronze. Malt aromas - toffee, almonds and biscuits. Rich aroma but body a let down. Dull, sweet with no life. Sometimes I think moderately strong malty beers dont hold up to pasteurisation too well.
