CourageBest (51) - Katy, Texas, USA - MAY 3, 2002
Nice beer, a lot like Caffreys or John Smiths in a can. While it is a little bit weak, its still tasty. Nice to linger over a can or two during a movie or a ballgame.

Drew (2411) - Kent, Ohio, USA - APR 30, 2002
slightly thicker and a little more flavorful than boddingtons. More on the sweet malt side, low hops. Very thin finnish as with most widgets.

Bov (12273) - Bienne, SWITZERLAND - APR 22, 2002

Dogbrick (12247) - Columbus, Ohio, USA - APR 20, 2002
Similar to Boddingtons or Caffreys, but thinner and with a lingering aftertaste. There are much better widget offerings out there. Nice cascade during the pour but the head is weak and short-lived. I expected better.

A decent brew and the first scottish ale I have tried. Very caramely and light coffee.

Gregory (357) - Pullman, Washington, USA - APR 1, 2002
Very nice flavors, of toffee, nuts, and even a hint of coffee. The aroma is malty, which definately comes out in the flavor. A rather tasty beer.

Merc (313) - Pullman, Washington, USA - APR 1, 2002
Just when I had convinced myself that I didnt really like Scottish ales, I tried this one. Maybe its the virtual absence of bitterness except on the very end of the finish that sells me. Caramel sweet and easy to drink.

maxhits (172) - Pico Rivera, California, USA - MAR 29, 2002
Malty and nutty, pouring with a deep caramel/ruby color with lively carbonation and a modest head. The nose has a buttery/hazelnut/malt aroma. The first taste is full-bodied, malted, and finishes with a slightly-sweet flavor and a very gentle hop bite. A light ale with an ABV of only 3.9%.
