tourette (225) - Seattle, Washington, USA - MAY 24, 2002
Solid, well balanced ale. It has a nutty characteristic that I liked. Its full bodied and generally very good.

This brew has strong caramel flavor with a hint of mocha. Finishes well but lacks kick. Overall an enjoyable beer that compliments most food very well.

Steak (124) - New York, USA - MAY 17, 2002
Such a nice dark reddy-brown color. The aroma was not very strong but their was a definite butterscotch aroma. The butterscotch was noted in the taste as well alongside a big malty feel. The beer was very, very thin towards the finish and I had thought that it would be much thicker, oh well. The finish seemed somewhat watered down and filtered and that as a dissapointment. Its still good, but it has some things to work on.

Typical Nitrogen charged widget can of beer. Its okay as a Scottish beer (its a little low flavor-wise for that...) and is definitely better than many of the offerings made in the States (Well, I will admit that its not at all hard to do that!). For the person wanting to try something a little different its worth the effort and Id buy it again (but its lower on my list- Im still going about trying new beers... Got a Zhiguly and a few others to give a whirl yet... :-)

mutant (854) - Melbourne, AUSTRALIA - MAY 11, 2002
Winey aroma & chestnut colour. Slight nutty flavour, not bitter but watery. Good session beer but too light for me.

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.

Nice creamy head - good color - but nothing great about this beer.

Bov (12556) - Bienne, SWITZERLAND - APR 22, 2002
reddish colour, dense creamy head, floral and buttery aroma, very smooth, sweet, light-bodied, short watery finish

Dogbrick (12633) - 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.
