OlJuntan64 (1265) - Perth, AUSTRALIA - SEP 6, 2002
Dark amber to strong tea colour with a very fine bubbled creamy yellow lasting head. Lotsa roasted coffee malts and medium bitter aroma. Thinnish to medium body with a smooth textured medium bitter palate. Flavours are mainly roasted coffee malt and some faint caramel sweetness in the finish. Interesting enough, but I cant imagine myself drink more than one of these in a sitting.

kumite56 (473) - Cordova, Tennessee, USA - SEP 2, 2002
Malty and crisp with a good balance of hopps. A very drinkable beer. Would be a better with a little more of a robust taste but all in all one to drink again. Nice reddish / copper hue with a white head.

SJP (483) - Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, USA - AUG 31, 2002
Not too bad, a little mild in flavor, with just a bit of roasted grain malt and a mild hops presence. A very drinkable beer.

nstal (237) - Houston, Texas, USA - AUG 29, 2002
Much better than expected. Hints of roasted flavor with lasting lacy head. A little bit of hops and a little bit of malt in the aroma. Scored a free pint glass to boot.

Panzuriel (2125) - Westerville, Ohio, USA - AUG 28, 2002
Decent beer. Not that wonderful. Average amount of hops and malt. Good amount of zing in flavor. Flatter aroma. Good appearance good texture.

Ringo (963) - Loveland, Colorado, USA - AUG 26, 2002
What happened to this beer? It used to be great in the 80s (painted label days), now it is relatively inexpensive and just slightly better than average.

Very palate pleasing and had one hell of a stable head on it after poured into the glass.

Hopistotle420 (1178) - Amherst, Massachusetts, USA - AUG 8, 2002
Flowery, almost wine like fruity nose. Nice thick cream colored head. Nice dark-reddish amber hue. Barely any carbonation in mouth, and bland flavor. Nice light, sweet malt finish thogh. On draught this beer is excellant...i feel the can doesnt do justice to this wonderful mild scottish ale.

Nate (4279) - Indiana, Pennsylvania, USA - AUG 4, 2002
Flowery sweet aroma, tea, and astringent mild hops. Big creamy off-white head on what looks like dark-brewed iced tea. Smooth palate, with almost no carb - silky, medium watery body. Light bitter hops and light sweet malt. Slight metallic of can and sour tang. Not a bad ale - very light with smooth sweetish after.
