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... :-)

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 (2470) - 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...........

Bov (13354) - Bienne, SWITZERLAND - APR 22, 2002
reddish colour, dense creamy head, floral and buttery aroma, very smooth, sweet, light-bodied, short watery finish

Dogbrick (14316) - Columbus, Ohio, USA - APR 20, 2002
Similar to Boddington's or Caffrey's, 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.

I like the taste of this beer ALOT! I tried it cold,and warm...at $11 a sixer its kinda pricey, but VERY tasty!!! the only downfall here is the head of the beer, it didnt have much of one..or last long enough for me to tell! but the flavor makes this a winner! the more I drink it, the more I like it!! this is tops for me! if its Not scottish its crrrrrrrrrap!

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