Just had this in a nitro can for the first time. It is remarkable, if you're a fan of Scottish ales. (Some of us just don't like hops much.) I like it much better than the bottled version. Reminds me of the rich, creamy Belhavens Best, which is on tap at most Scottish pubs, but doesn't seem to be exported.

Wish it were a little lower alcohol, so you could drink more of it without getting too buzzed.
