Tap. Clear amber color. Medium size, thick beige head, stays. Malty, sour, grainy, acidic in aroma. Berries, caramel, citrus, herbal, tannins in taste. Tannins, herbal, sweetish in aftertaste. Mild bitterness. I don't like the berries. Soft carbonation. Weird shit.

Keg in the Volley Fort William. A classic Scottish 50 Shilling. Truly awful. How did I survive on this stuff for so,many years. Thankfully not often now. Served cold, little malt, little hop, mainly water.

Grumpelmies (431) - GERMANY - OCT 23, 2017
UPDATED: OCT 23, 2017 Draft @ The Crown Hotel, Lockerbie. Amber coloured with no head courtesy of the barkeeper. Mild aroma of malts and biscuit. Taste is biscuit, slightly malty and hints of floral hops. Low carbonation. Smooth. Ok for what it is.

Straight from can. Aroma: biscuit malts. Light body. The taste is diluted malts and finishing floral hops. Nothing special really.

Graham77 (515) - SCOTLAND - OCT 28, 2016
440ml Draught Flow System can. ABV now only 3.2%. Copper colour with the expected creamy head. Aroma is light sweet malt. Taste is malty with a faintly floral hop note. Not bad at all considering the ABV of 3.2%.

JK (6342) - St. Louis Park, Minnesota, USA - SEP 30, 2016
My first beer in Scotland. It looks nice, am er color qoth a cream colored head. Aroma has malt, and it is very light. Flavor is light as welll with a mineral, almost chemical quality. Bitter malt flavor. No notable hop presence. Truly the Cream Of Scottish Beer.

3.2
Christos (5909) - Arnhem, NETHERLANDS - SEP 28, 2016
(Belhaven Best (Bottle and Keg)) Tap at Hotel and Folk Pub Terminus, Den Bosch, full pint. Amber coloured body, clear, tall and thick, creamy head on top, with very good retention. The aroma has light caramel, straw and some nice, light hoppy notes. Taste is of caramel and metal, straw, some hop presence too on the back, mildly bitter. Medium thin body. Decent bitter.
