330 ml bottle, as Eden Mill St. Andrews The Clock Scottish Red Ale, 4.3% ABV. It appears now to be brewed in St. Andrews, but according to the brewery website it will soon be discontinued. Bought in The Howff, Aberdeen. Reddish colour, small off-white head. Moderate dryish and "dusty" malty aroma. Malty flavour, mid between dry and sweet, some light roasty notes, moderate hops. Not remarkable. jjsint (2992) - Cambridge, Cambridgeshire, ENGLAND - JAN 29, 2017
Cask at the Clockwork pub in Mount Florida, Glasgow. Light red, flat, no head. Malt aroma - itís not a ímalt bombí as the scent is gentle, but definitely malt-led - with some redcurrant notes. Taste offers up no surprises: sweet and malty with some gentle fruity hop bitterness in the background with gives balance to the long finish. Oily body but it kind of works for the style. Good enough without pushing the boat out. Not sure that Iíd have another. jamestulloch (4048) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - OCT 25, 2015
Bottle from the brewery. Hazy amber/brown body with a thin off-white head. No lacing. Mild aroma of red apple and lightly roasted malt. Flavour of caramel and berries. Thin body with a light, watery texture. Soft fizz. Quite bland. Bullit (4569) - Burgos, SPAIN - AUG 13, 2015

From bottle at the brewery.
Great looking with a deep reddish body> Excellent aroma with a milder, less appealing flavor. Still, quite nice and recommended. sic1314 (4775) - Leiden, NETHERLANDS - MAR 28, 2015
Poured reddish brown with a frothy tan head. Aroma of berries, milk chocolate and soft malt. Light to medium body, flavour as the aroma, medium sweet, light nutty bitterness. imdownthepub (14440) - Banbury, Oxfordshire, ENGLAND - MAR 16, 2015
Cask conditioned at The Kingís Head, Leicester. Brown with white head. Malty beer with a boiled vegetable edge, quite bitter and dry, light peppery note, thinnish finish. Average. Godfather50 (238) - SCOTLAND - DEC 6, 2014
A nice balanced beer from a Birthday bottle from Rory Duncan. Nice balanced ale. Good head. Slightly too hoppy for traditional scottish style. But then thatís the way I like it. Interesting spice from the hops. Bobeck and Summit.
