Graham77 (514) - 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 (6061) - 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.

Christos (5572) - 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.

badhack (553) - San Francisco, California, USA - SEP 26, 2016
Pours orange-golden with a nice frothy head. Light, creamy, malty, full mouth with a pleasant hop finish. This is an extremely drinkable and refreshing and light beer.

minutemat (5259) - Shrewsbury, Shropshire, ENGLAND - AUG 31, 2016
Can @ Cirros Italian Restaurant, Callandar. Pours amber, creamy white head. Aroma is very light malt. Taste is smooth, creamy and extremely light. Almost tastes watery and even aerated. I like a nice bitter, but this is simply lacking in character. Cant think of any situation where Id willingly drink this again.

BeerNinjaUK (438) - Wiltshire, ENGLAND - JUN 12, 2016
Backlog rating: Tried in the hotel in Lochaline on holiday, April 2016. Pint pours pale amber with creamy white head, leaving good lacing. Aroma slightly insipid citrus, biscuity, lacking depth. Thin and watery, pretty bland and flat.

mkel07 (5742) - Brisbane, AUSTRALIA - MAY 19, 2016
Can from Copper and Oak Liquor Merchants 190516. Full bodied and quite creamy in the mouth but Im just not all that fussed about the flavour. Looks quite good with a strong amber colour and a lush thick creamy head of foam. I cant imagine drinking a lot of this beer as one pint is enough for me.
