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.
Can on a train. A decent, canned bitter / Scottish ale with a bit of caramel and a tiny bit of cocoa at the end. It's still pretty bland, but at least it has a bit of flavor. Grumbo (3722) - Ipswich, Suffolk, ENGLAND - SEP 4, 2017

Myself and my dad drink mcewans export a fair amount. Overall the taste is pretty distinct and has a mediocre smell. gripweed57 (2793) - Hamilton Square, New Jersey, USA - MAY 20, 2017
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.

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. josanguapo (1854) - SPAIN - MAR 28, 2017
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 jfb (6572) - GERMANY - FEB 16, 2017
