500ml bottle. Pours a clear copper amber, with a small off-white head, which does not last all that well nor leave much by way of lacing. The aroma is mainly nutty and biscuit malt, without a lot else going on. Very mild floral hops lead through a touch of honey to a sweetish mix of nutty and biscuit notes, with more honey in the finish. This is not a terrible beer, simply very bland. A bit of hops presence to balance the sweeter malt flavours would do it a world of good.
Myself and my dad drink mcewans export a fair amount. Overall the taste is pretty distinct and has a mediocre smell. gripweed57 (2593) - 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. rich8880 (52) - - MAY 14, 2017
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.

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 (6360) - GERMANY - FEB 16, 2017
(keg) clear copper colour with a frothy off-white head. aroma of marzipan and pale malts, quite yeasty, with some notes of raisins and gently roasted malts. flavour is mostly red bell peppers and more marzipan, with a touch of yeast, sugar icing and some manure in the finish. medium-bodied with average carbonation. jjsint (3208) - Leicester, Leicestershire, ENGLAND - JAN 29, 2017
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! StuartC (74) - Lochgilphead, Argyll, SCOTLAND - DEC 30, 2016
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!
