Nice, but not as good as the St. Andrews, also by Belhaven. Needs a more distinctive flavor, in this case.

Thin and slightly bitter. Not hoppy enough. I'd call it almost dry, in that the (thin) flavor is there (almost) and then it's gone. The novelty can does nothing for this beer, as it does not have enough body to it to match the artificially enhanced head. If it wasn't beer, i'd pour it out ;-)

Admiral (524) - Schnecksville, Pennsylvania, USA - FEB 3, 2003
Orange/amber, with nice offwhite head. A little bitterness which melds well with the peaty malt. Nice texture.

Trappist (286) - Knoxville, Tennessee, USA - JAN 30, 2003
Better if it is not in a can, but tasty stuff none the less. The beer has a very creamy texture to it, with a light brown color, thin to medium head that last for a short while. Not very bitter and alcohol is almost non-apparent. I woill drink this again however, just hopefully on tap next time.

Creamy texture without an overpowering bitterness. Best from the tap.

CaptainCougar (7133) - Columbia, Maryland, USA - JAN 18, 2003
On tap: Pours mostly foam/nitrogenated, which settles into a golden colored ale with a large, fluffy, and dense head. The aroma is sweet, like candy. The body is thin, but compensated for with the thick pillowy head. Flavor is mellow, slightly malty, and has a great, smokey peat malt character. This may be my new favor beer on tap at the local bars.

Nice appley smell! Great brown ale colour similar to all of the English breweries. Good appley-esb taste!

savitska (163) - Smyrna, Georgia, USA - JAN 4, 2003
I really enjoyed this Scottish Ale, it accentuates the malt without being too sweet. There was a roasted quality to the finish after a smooth start. A great, deep brown color and a slightly lacy head.

Something is just not right. Thank God it is my last beer of the evening.
