0.8 AROMA 2/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 1/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 1/20
I remember this beer from the 70s - it was vile then but was almost all you could get in Scotland.
The bad news is that a change of brewer has brought little or no improvement. Pours dark amber with a thin white head, has faint nose of caramel and a thin and watery texture. Has caramel and nasty metallic tastes. The aftertaste is brief; mercifully so because there’s nothing pleasant here.
Avoid like the plague..

Bought a pint in shetland’s "The Loungue" while on a school trip. Bronze-dark color with thin white head. Aroma of red berries,leather and hoppy grass. Taste of alcohol, citrus and bark. Not my kind of beer.

500 ml bottle. Clear brown body with a small off-white head. Weak aroma with caramel malt and toast. Flavor is caramel malt with low bitterness. Thin body and short aftertaste. Pretty boring.

....and finally I get to sit down to try this tonight; at home. The can, which looks great with its Tartan livery, is thanks to All my vinyl... thanks really ! Pours light brown/amber. Some roasted malts aroma. Toasted malts and caramel sweetness. Metallic..a. Bitterness. Not as thin, and one dimensional as I thought it would be. Actually quite refreshing in the context of this unexpectedly warm Easter. I could happily drink a few tins of that if there wasn?t much choice.

Keg in some dive bar in glasgow. Pours clear deep amber, nose is toffee, grass, taste is harsh chemical, dry toffee, more unpleasant the more I drink.

Can from Global Wines, Bearwood. Thin. Light brown. Effortlessly forgettable. Length of taste is equivalent to the half-life of a gull’s fart.
