Pale to mid amber with a large white head. Aroma was malty, rather peppery and metallic. Taste of toast and marmalade with a strong bitter finish and lots of fizz. Not a bad beer, but it lacked a certain reserve and refinement. berkshirejohn (6491) - Bracknell, Berkshire, ENGLAND - JAN 10, 2007
Bottle from Sainsbury’s. A golden amber colour with lots of white head leaving some lacing; quite highly carbonated. Quite light to drink with a malty taste, then a pleasantly bitter aftertaste leaving the palate dry. gnoff (10336) - Mölndal, SWEDEN - AUG 22, 2006
Unfortunately I didn’t have any haggis on hand to try with it - according to the back of the bottle... "Hunted in the heather covered hillsides of the highlands, these reclusive creatures traverse the hillside only in an anti-clockwise direction, due to the unequal length of their legs." - as my shotgun has a clockwise bend in the barrel I’ll never bag one of the blighters!
(500 ml bottle brought by a friend from London) Clear copper color with a medium size lasting tan head. Fresh hoppy scent, though it smells a bit watery. Malty taste with a little bit bitter twist, bitter after taste. Watery mouth feel. scotty (1208) - SCOTLAND - JUN 11, 2006
A lovely orange/gold colour with an excellent white head that lasts well down the glass...leaves a good lace too! Has that fantastic, well balanced hop ’n’ malt nose that I expect from Harviestoun beers, a bit lighter in body than expected but packed with smooth malt and fruity hop flavours, a slight sharp acidity appears on the finish...lovely! Didn’t have it with haggis tho! MartinKubert (862) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - MAR 20, 2006
Not much flavour in this one. Has some round and malty notes. Rather tasteless and weak. Sweet finish.

Bottle. Amber/gold with a small white head. Aromas are fresh pine and grapefruit with earthy hops and spices. Fairly sweet caramel malts. Flavours are spiced oranges and citrus with sweet grapefruit. Some caramel malts with nice peppery and bitter hops. Good stuff. Fin (10533) - Merton, Oxfordshire, England, Oxfordshire, ENGLAND - MAR 8, 2006
Bottle from Sainsburys. Not particularly impressive but then not too bad amber colour small frothy head quite refreshing for it’s strength crisp and hoppy and lingering bitterness. GarethYoung (1111) - Glasgow, SCOTLAND - FEB 23, 2006
[bottle from sainsburys] Aroma of caramel, bread, fruit, some oily hop character. thin body, slight bitterness in the finish. pivo (2685) - GERMANY - FEB 12, 2006
Toasted malt and caramel nose, some hops. Shimmering amber color, foamy head. Thin malt base gives way to a broad tingly bitter across the whole mouth. Somewhat bold overall and with character. Nice one. YogiBeera (2569) - New Jersey, USA - FEB 5, 2006
Thanks a lot Chris! Pale copper color with a small frothy head on top. Medium alcohol, malt, caramel and molasses nose. Intense bitterness - grass and estragon in the taste -lasts long. Fizzy carbonation. Quite nice.
