Just getting to know Scottish beers. This is a nice middle between their light pub ales to their dark offerings. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

mabuzzer (957) - Hamilton, SCOTLAND - NOV 22, 2015
500ml bottle. Clear, dark, reddish brown with an off white head. Sweet, fruity malt aroma, matched in the flavour which also has some bitterness. Not bad

Cunningham (8528) - Halden, NORWAY - OCT 2, 2015
Deep nutty color with a big off white head. Looks nice and gives a fine lacing down the glass. Fruity, malty and toffee. Medium body and a fine carbonation. Tad sweet and a moderate bitterness. Decent fine bitter.
