Pint in the Fife Arms,Dufftown, Scotland
Light brown colour,small off white head. Plenty laceing
Very malty aroma though not quite as sweet as others.
Has a quite distinctive malty and nutty taste ..the nuttiness raises this above the average 70 shilling type ales.
Nice palate, refreshing and well carbonated.
I found this very drinkable..good session brew. robertsreality (2460) - Minnesota, USA - JUN 22, 2004
Had at The Eagle, in Inverness. Tasted Metallic....Can’t say I find this beer appealing in any sense. Imaena (2315) - Maputo, MOZAMBIQUE - JUN 9, 2013
Draught. This is a thin and tinny bitter that does not really have a whole lot going for it. jerohen (2276) - Bussum, NETHERLANDS - AUG 23, 2004
Clear orange color, short creamy lasting head. More caramel and toffee than 80 Shilling, note of hazelnut. Not really bitter, lingering palate. Quite nice. (yep, i drank this one with caesar) Panzuriel (2199) - Westerville, Ohio, USA - JUN 29, 2003

1/2 pint draught, The Blue Blazer, Edinburgh. Reddish brown colour with a fine-laced off-white head. Slightly nutty and crisp aroma. Served too cold. Lightly bitter when it enters the mouth. Drying bitter sensation. Typical lager-like crispness. Prickly sensation from carbonation. Finishes dry with a light roasted maltiness. BeerLimey (2154) - California, USA - JUL 28, 2002
Keg (cask may be better): Had this after the 80 and seemed to waive a little in terms of flavor. To its credit there’s a little peated smokiness, while it’s definitely tuned to session drinking. jamesie1857 (2111) - Sheffield, South Yorkshire, ENGLAND - JAN 12, 2014
Keg at The Shed, 7 Lady St, Annan DG12 5DA back in 24 March 2012 - Russet red body, thick white head. Nose is faint malts and caramel, taste is a metallic cheap canned bitter note. Thin mouthfeel. Another uninspiring one. davidm (2080) - Sunnyvale, California, USA - DEC 11, 2011
On tap in Glasgow, named "Tartan Special". Great hop balance. Aromas of caramel, grass, and coke. Taste is sweet and bitter. Palate is velvety, and medium bodied. Amber, with a frothy head. kwik-lime (1915) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - OCT 27, 2010
Ultra smooth nitro bitter. Flavours aren’t strong but was is there is malty with a vague sweetness.
