3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 11/20
Keg at the State Bar. Going in you pretty much know this won’t be great. Ruby brown and clear with a bit of cream coloured head. Slight malty aroma with a bit of cinnamon. Taste is... surprisingly decent. Sweet, malty and plummy with a spicy note. Finish is a bit short, and the body’s fairly watery, but all in all as macro keg bitters go this is okay.

Can. It’s a pretty plain bitter, but there’s a nice spicy/toffee hit at the end that makes it of slight interest. Would help make drinking a lot of these suckers more interesting!

2.5 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 10/20
Clear orange-brown colour, generous white head which lasts, with constant, very fine bubbles; Muddy aromas of browned fruits, leather, cocoa and zero hops; Light bodied, almost no mouthfeel except metallic spritziness; Crisp malts with noticeable undertones of bitter cocoa. THE classic Scottish Export Ale? Judge me as you may, but this is my standard "drinking" beer that will go a good session!

Metallic aroma, a bit corny. [illegible - burnt? sweet?] and metallic harsh taste. Bitterness is acrid in the finish. Rough brew. Thank god I never have to have it again.

Medium brown with a thick head. Very little aroma. Starts of grainy, moving in to a citrusy sort of flavor without being fruity, and ending with nice hoppy notes. Medium bodied.
