0.5 l bottle from K-Citymarket Ojamo, Lohja. Appearance is clearly amber. Aroma is malty. Taste is also malty in Scottish way (more deep than in English ales). This resembles bitter but in a more malty way.

jjsint (2252) - Cambridge, Cambridgeshire, ENGLAND - NOV 21, 2015
Cask at the Foot of the Walk, Leith. Reddish brown, clear and very flat. Berries, forest floor and slight chocolate bouquet. Meh. The taste is a step up: sweet, fruity and rounded, with some hoppy bitterness in the surprisingly dry finish. A workaday red bitter from Williams Bros but tasty nonetheless.

Bonito color rubí. Dos dedos escasos de espuma. Dulce aroma acaramelado. En boca toque picante efervescente que acompaña muy bien a un sabor entre malteado y muy lupulado, frutal, mandarina y floral. Buen conjunto. Notable.
