About a 1/3 of a 50 cl can, rest was drain poured. Bronze pour with some head. Light nose and taste, some grain and malt sweetness. Has some weird metallic notes.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
From old tasting notes. Orange amber liquid that supports a rocky tan head. Tart, toffeeish malt aroma. Light dry, butterscotch malt flavor. Some hop bitterness in finish. Chewy malt aftertaste.

Can. The beer that helped launch a consumer revolution (CAMRA). In their heyday, McEwans produced some great beer (80/- was one) but this wasn’t one of them. Caramel appearance and a slightly malty caramel aroma. For 4.5%, there isn’t as much taste as there should be - a moderate sweetness but no real depth to it. One for nostalgia.

2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 9/20
Nice looking dark red color, clear, ultrafine white head. Aroma of light biscuit malt, grass, some plum, a coppery/metallic edge. Taste is rather flat.
Light body, soft to average carbonation, watery texture, clean finish. Not much going on, but really quaffable.

From Hipercor. In Ikea’s pint glass. Reading JHTP11 Ch36. Very pleasant caramel in a very drinkable brew with nice bitter end. Well balanced. Nothing stands out but finishes quickly and smoothly

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!

500ml can (Random convenience store, some station in London) (4-:2:3-:1:5-=1.5---)
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.
