Light sweet malts and rubbery hops aroma. Dark clear yellow with white thin head, no lacing. Medium high carb and medium watery body. Bit of alcohol taste and adjuncts. Little rubbery. Tasted like a poor standard lager, actually more like a malt liquor. Wouldn't have again.

it seems every country has to have a blands lager pretending to be good beer. scotland is no exception. I'll take a single malt before this cardboard juice anyday.

I was subtly confused throughout the majority portion of this beer experience. The aroma is definitely a mix of hops and stale green bottle hops with a hint of cold glass and wet cardboard or towel. It pours with a filmy and soapy white head over a clear and ever so slightly carbonated mass of light yellow beer. For the initial part of the taste, it is actually quite doable...its thin but the carbonation and whatever is in there do their work briefly before that awful aftertaste takes over. The aftertaste is very dry, sandpaper like, with wet cardboard, grains, sweet n low sugar and a hint of lemony citrus in there. I definitely didnt like the finish...very unappealing. I've had worse lagers out there..this is run of the mill.

Can. Decent head. Nothing special, didn’t like the finish too much. Why have a lager when the Scotch (and Irish) ales are so yummy?

On draught in Naperville, Illinois. Color a pale amber, negligible nose, dry, bitter and mostly unsatisfying.

BeerPrince (1701) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - MAR 22, 2003
Golden and clear with little head. Aroma is dominated by the green bottle skunk. Taste is weak and the finish is slightly bubbly. Not a great lager.

Dougal (130) - Escondido, California, USA - MAR 11, 2003
For a lager I usually stick to this one. Nice golden color, lighter carbonation than other choices. Skunky from a bottle but sweet on tap. For a lager, it ain't half bad.

OKBeer (1171) - Halifax, Nova Scotia, CANADA - MAR 4, 2003
Colour was pale yellow, but with a strange brownish to it. Lots of fluffy white head. Lots of hop in the aroma. Taste was mostly bitter. Was like a typical macrobrew but with a bit more flavour.

Aroma of a typical lager, and a taste to match. Nothing terribly wrong with this lager, but the taste seems a bit metallic at times. Aftertaste is okay.

This is not a very memorable lager, it is light and even a bit skunky at times. It's not horrible, but in no way would I put it in my top 10 list. There was a decent hops nose and taste, but the light mouthfeel and very little aftertaste did very little for me.
