Bottle. This is not a bitter I would reccomend. Its tinney and thin without much to offer.

On tap at The Laurieston, Glasgow - clear dark amber, thick creamy off-white head, resin and barley aroma, creamy texture, fragile lacing, creamy malty texture, malty resinous flavour, refreshing, malty finish

4.2% brown colour with a good head, slight roast malt aroma, malt and hop taste, I used to drink this quite a lot but now find it to be very ordinary and they have dropped the alcohol from 4.5%.

Bottle, in Scotland 2011. Poured a reddish brown color. ARoma of malt, caramel, with a bit of earthiness. Flavor was the same, with a bit more sweetness and a touch of smoke/roast. Good enough.

Draught at Cuan Mór, Oban, Scotland.
Clear copper colour with small creamy light tan head. Very mild malty aroma. Sweet malt and wood in flavour. Smooth but boring.

Keg @ The Jolly Judge. Light brown colour, good foamy head. Earthy malt aroma. Dry metallic caramel malt flavour. Smooth & creamy with sour aftertaste. Drinkable.

davidm (2081) - Sunnyvale, California, USA - DEC 11, 2011
On tap at the Oban Bay Brewery. Great beer, full of contrasts. Aroma is earthy, with caramel, nuts, fresh malt, and pine. Taste is sweet, with some bitterness, and long length. Palate is velvety, and medium bodied. Amber, with a big frothy head.

BenH (3436) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - SEP 30, 2011
Keg tap. Slightly fruity pissy malty aroma and taste. Not very pleasant. Struggled with my pint

yespr (46805) - Copenhagen O, DENMARK - NOV 19, 2010
From tap at Ben Nevis. Pours clear and golden orange to brown with a small creamy and off white head, leaving a thick creamy lacing on the glass. Aroma is dark roasted malty and breadish. Bitter, slight hops metallic and dark malty flavoured. Flat malty and slight bitter finish.
