hazy amber beer with a quickly diminishing head. has that ’bridge of allan malts’ smell about it, some caramel. body is a bit thin. Ungstrup (37655) - Citizen of the universe, DENMARK - JAN 3, 2005
[At Jyske Øldage 2004, Kolding] A hazy amber beer with a disappearing beige head. The aroma is of caramel and alcohol. The flavor is sweet malty with notes of caramel, wood, and berries. Dalle (1145) - Skørping, DENMARK - NOV 23, 2004
Bottle. Cloudy amber with minimal head. Malty, caramel and nuts. Low carbonation / flat. Medium body. RichardGretton (4770) - Leicestershire, ENGLAND - NOV 1, 2004
Cloudy amber beer with a reasonable head. The aroma and flavour are basically sour, which after a while you get use to. Overall a poor beer. jfm (1724) - Holbæk, DENMARK - OCT 27, 2004
Amber color with a white head. The taste is sweet but rather thin with caramel and slight malty notes.

Murky orange and brown with a small head. Aromas are nutty, malty and sweet and sour all at the same time. Flavours are fruity malts with some caramel, chocolate. A fair degree of sourness, too. Perhaps my bottle was tainted. I may try it again at some point. chriso (7533) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - FEB 22, 2004
500ml bottle (not bottle conditioned). Mid amber colour. Roast malt aroma, with hints of wood smoke. As expected, malt dominates the flavour too, but also quite dry - perhaps a little dryer, and lighter bodied, than a definitive version of the style would be. No sweetness whatsoever. Soft, but dry finish. Overall, rather pleasant. Bought from beersinabox.com and badged as "Haggis Hunter" but clearly the same beer as the commercial descriptions match.

Red-brown with thin off-white head.
Smoked aroma with tones of fudge, pumpkin and carrot.
Smoked flavour. Spiesy (2338) - Sydney, Greater London, AUSTRALIA - JUL 6, 2003
Bottled.Rustic deep ginger colour with no gas at all. Totally flat. Feels very thin in the mouth. Initial chocolate flavour with certain smoky quality. This all makes it sound better then it actually is. johndoughty (5452) - cheslyn hay, West Midlands, ENGLAND - MAY 19, 2003
Bridge of Allan continues to produce original and interesting beers not just bottled versions of bog standard bitters.
This one is in the traditional Scotish 80/ style-not as much body as I would prefer but a nice subtle smokey taste. Quite malty and rather drinkable.
