Great beer! Especially when from a nitrogen tap in a pub. Great creamy head, extremely smooth, well balanced. The next time you see this, try it instead of a guiness. Bolt (117) - Boulder Creek, California, USA - MAY 25, 2002
Horrible... heavy vinegar taste. After reading all the other reviews, I hope it was just a bad keg at the local pub. 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. joeprogressive99 (6) - USA - MAY 20, 2002 does not count
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. It’s still good, but it has some things to work on.

Typical Nitrogen charged widget can of beer. It’s okay as a Scottish beer (it’s 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 it’s not at all hard to do that!). For the person wanting to try something a little different it’s worth the effort and I’d buy it again (but it’s lower on my list- I’m 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 Caffrey’s or John Smith’s in a can. While it is a little bit weak, it’s 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. bluemeow76 (693) - Lewis Center, Ohio, USA - APR 22, 2002
Nice creamy head - good color - but nothing great about this beer.
