Pours clear amber, medium white head. Lots of malt and herbs in aroma. Medium bitter. Dry finish. Not bad at all. sarauckelman (540) - Durham, Durham, ENGLAND - DEC 15, 2014
Clear amber with scummy head. Round malty aroma; round malty flavor very strong without being too sweet, and with nice hints of grain. Rather dry on the finish. A beer that makes me happy to drink it. christhoel (286) - chesterfield, Derbyshire, ENGLAND - NOV 28, 2014

Bottle from B&M, Lichfield. Copper beer with small head. Aroma of malts and toffee. Taste follows suit with a hint of smoke, unintentional maybe. Ok beer.

Bottle. Bronze with a small head .Slightly malty but lacking any really memorable taste. Says on the bottle that this is a premium bottle-who are they trying to kid? 77ships (9827) - Antwerpen, BELGIUM - MAY 16, 2014
500 ml. bottle @ home. This is apparently the official Flying Scotsman (I had too look that one up) which sounds a bit funny to me because like how many unofficial beers can there beer for a famous train? This is also the first beer that I see that makes an effort to appeal to trainspotters (beer geeks have been speculated to have evolved from trainspotters in the UK). //// Pours a totally clear dark caramel amber with a small but firm off-white head. Nose is cloying with cheap dark honey and toasted raisin bread with butter (not diacetyl, just raisin bread with butter), this is too sticky. Tastes cloying of mild herbs, liquorish, metals, cheap honey, raisin bread, touch watery kvass, bready,… metallic, herbal kvass aftertaste. Fizzy, faintly watery. Acceptable beer but cloying is like one of the weirdest characteristics for a bitter to have, this is supposed to be a mild style that is lower alcohol and easy to drink in large quantities, something that is cloying and tastes like raisin bread with butter and honey. scotty (1208) - SCOTLAND - MAY 8, 2014
Bottle from B&M. Copper/gold in colour with a thin, but lasting white head, leaving a good set of rings down the glass. Nice malty nose with some fruit loaf type aromas in the background, med - full in body, nice malty palate with a good finish. Good beer!
