It poured a translucent brown with two fingers of white head. The strong malt flavor was there and it was hoppier than anything I would expect from Scotland. It was balanced though . It had a big mouthfeel and left a bitter aftertaste.

Bottle from Waitrose. Appearance - deep amber, fluffy white head, frantic bubbles. Nose - caramel mainly, hazelnuts maybe. Taste - loads of toffee, nuts again too. Palate - light to medium bodied. Tangy sweet, middle section, a touch drier on the finish, but still quite sweet. Overall - ok, but too sweet to go back for more.

Lidt humlet blid smag, frugtagtig eftersmag, meget kulsyre i flasken.......

From old tasting notes. Bright copper hue topped by a thick creamy beige head. Soft caramel malt nose. Toffeeish malt flavor with an underlying smokiness upfront. Creamy malt finish hints at bitter hops.

Flaska från Pitchers. Bärnstensfärgad med smutsvit skumkrona. Doft av torkade aprikoser och karamellmalt. Frisk, medelsöt kropp. Smak av rostad malt, torkade aprikoser och lite citrus.

Highly carbonated average bitter, poor unbalanced hop flavour and toffe malts from over boiling. Bit below average mass production cheap bitter.

Malty, caramel flavour. Hints of dried fruit. Very clear with a good clean foamy head. Very drinkable

A satisfying amber ale. Sweet dry and refreshing. Crystal clear amber ale. Malty, with a yeast character. Quite light but nice and balanced. Biscuity and creamy. Really nothing special but decent.

355ml Flasche. Dunkle Bernsteinfarbe, flacher Schaum. Röstmalz und etwas Trockenobst. Geschmack erst süsslich, dann bitter. Insgesammt zu wässerig.

Rich, roasted malt flavor. Hints of fruits and, strangely, chocolate. Taste and aroma lighten as you progress. Keeps a nice creamy head.
