Amber in colour. Malty nutty aroma. Grainy start with a touch of butterscotch there. Not bad. scotty (1208) - SCOTLAND - SEP 25, 2005
Ok stuff. Reasonably well balanced, smooth and quite malty. Standing Order Edinburgh. chriso (7533) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - SEP 11, 2005
Cask (handpump) at the Market Porter, London SE1. Yep, there’s oodles of buttery diacetyl in here and from others’ comments it seems this is a normal characteristic of the beer, not just this batch or the way its been kept. Unfortunately, its a Scottish style beer, with a low hop presence and not much bitterness to cut through. Sweetish, malty and fruity with some earthy edges. Quite thin. Attractive deep copper colour. But I keep coming back to that butterscotch and the lack of counterpoint to it.

Market Porter, Borough, London. Butterscotch aroma and flavour, lots of diacetyl. Some nutty characters and hints of berry fruit, sweetish and flat caramel and butterscotch character.
[[draught wetherspoons] light brown beer with a moderate maintaining head hoppy nose with some butterscotch. watery body. DonMagi (5593) - bantervile, Bedfordshire, ENGLAND - JUN 5, 2005
Aroma is difficult due to wetherspoons smokey atmosphere. Taste seems quite bitter at first though not too hoppy, however turns to be quite well balanced throughout the drinking. Nothing too special good session beer though a bit watery and thin. ClarkVV (6708) - Boston, Massachusetts, USA - MAY 2, 2005

Copper colored beer with a foamy white head, good retention. Caramel-orange aroma, some notes of gingerbread? Flavor of dry breadiness, graham crackers and then BAM! a big dose of diacetyl. Doughy malt, bland and watery on the end, no carbonation.
Cask @ Oliver Twist, Stockholm
Slightly hazy bronze. Loads of toffee in aroma. Pleasant toast notes in flavour. It’s fine if you manage to get past the initial toffee bombing. Malty finnish.
