500ml clear bottle as ’Belhaven Robert Burns’, 4.2% BB Nov 2016. Dark orange brown, clear, lightly sparkling, small tan ring on top. Aroma is sugary, cola, bready sugars. Body is medium to light, tingly carbonation, not foamy. Taste is sugary, thin cola, treacle, soft bitterness. Plain and sweet. OK. Drinkable but not really my sort of thing.

rotten eggs, golden, clear, off white foam, light sweetness, lightly bitter, light body, thin feel, soft carbonation, long finish, DraftDodger (1529) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - OCT 28, 2015
Copenhagen 28/10 2015. 50 cl bottle from Meny. Clear glass bottle. Label with drawing of serious fella with huge sideburns whom I assume is the thirsty Robert Burns. Pours clear copper brown with white head. Settles as thin layer of foam. Aroma is of toffee, caramel and roasted malts. Notes of burned toast. Aroma is a little skunky as well. Soft carbonation and watery palate. Taste follows the nose and is of sweet toffee and caramel supplemented by something burnt - without being unpleasant. Nice English beer. Not much bitterness around but will probably fit in with the muffins and the afternoon Tea. Desverger (11455) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - OCT 22, 2015
Bottle from Meny (Amager), Copenhagen - Amber pour with white head. Sweet malty aroma and taste, with some caramel, treacle, nuts, some twiggy herbal hoppy notes, not bad.

For a relatively low alcohol ale you get a great experience with this typical Scottish ale. The foam is moderate, the aroma is limited to malt.
The taste is very right for a Scottish ale, namely sweet malty, slightly caramel and a sensible richness which change slightly hoppy aftertaste. Easy to drink, but in some ways maybe a little thin. mabuzzer (846) - Hamilton, SCOTLAND - APR 23, 2015
Coppery colour with white head. Dried fruit aroma, caramel flavour with those dried fruits returning and a hint of spice. Bit thin, perhaps, but otherwise decent chinchill (5024) - South Carolina, USA - APR 14, 2015
500 ml clear bottle purchased and consumed in Fife. Label now says "Robert Burns Brown Ale" but still lists 4.2% ABV.
Pours with a bright copper body topped by a good head. Medium+ body and carbonation.
Aroma: a bit more more English hops than malts.
Flavor: Lasting, mildly bitter, malty aftertaste.

500ml bottle. Pours copper with a small off-white head. Aroma is nutty and malty with some fruity notes. Taste is malty and fruity. Medium bitter finish. ianwelby (1387) - SCOTLAND - APR 5, 2015
Clear, light brown beer with a thick frothy head. Slightly sweet malt smell. Mostly malt in the flavour too, though there’s a slightly smoky toffee taste as well. Unspectacular but very drinkable. And not as lively on the tongue as it looks from the pour which is a bonus as well.
