Went to lidl for a cheap bottle of beer and got this. Not much intrest to the flavour and not bitter enough.

Foffern (1877) - Bodø, NORWAY - DEC 31, 2014
Bottle at home. Pours a clear, dark amber colour with a beige head. Aroma of fudge, leather, wood and some chocolate. The flavour is light with wood and grass, and is a little dry. Has a slick mouth feel, and a light bitterness. An okay ale, but maybe has a bit careful taste.

Bottle with Mole and a good example of a Scottish Ale. Malty fruit taste with a good head. Low hopping and a very nice sweet finish.

Take a bow Belhaven. Fantastic example of a sweet, malty Scottish ale. Subtle herbs, slightly gassy, nice palate and autumnal bliss man. Drink and drink, its brilliant. Moreish and SIMPLE. Lovely feel in the mouth and balanced after taste. Unpretentious! Scottish ale at just about its best. About as untrendy as a walking stick but walking sticks are cool when held by the right person. Shit new label, old untrendy one was best. 500ml £1.25 in lidl! If this was in a wee bottle with a craft poncy label and charged at £2.50 you’d be swooning over it. Great simple beer!

500 ml bottle, 4,6 % ABV version. Clear amber body with a rather small off-white head. Light aroma mainly from caramel malt. Flavor is mainly caramel malt as well with hint of fruit and low bitterness. Did honestly not find any smoke as described by so many other old ratings. Recipe might have been changed during the last years? Medium body and a bit short in aftertaste. Pretty classic old style British bitter, no faults but too one-dimensional to be able to drink a lot of this.

Duft av humle, malt og noe eik. Fin kastanjebrun gyllen farge. dekkende skum. Smak av malt, eik og noe honning. Flaske ettiketten sier 4.6%.

MrJamesMcEwan (244) - SCOTLAND - SEP 6, 2014
Bottle. Pours clear, yellow, with a good slightly tanned frothy head that holds well. Full bodied, light carbonation, very fine bubbles, lots of lacing. Aroma is malt, biscuits. Taste is grassy, malty bread, fruity. Finish is clean, a bit dry and sweet,crisp finish. A nice malty beer.
