The Caledonian 80 has a beautiful red/brown color and a small and creamy head.
The beer smells sweet and malty.
The taste is sweet and malty like the smell. There is a bit hop bitter after taste.
The mouthfeel is really smooth.
I think this beer is really easy to drink. This is because the carbonation is smooth and the taste is not very dominant.
There is a difference between the cask version of this ale and the bottled one. The cask version is a bit sweeter and smoother than the botteled beer.

I see this beer gets very high reviews. Had two bottles of this beer the other day and to be honest I found it a bit bland. Defenitely nothing special enough to deserve all the praise it seems to be getting.
I remember having a few of cans Newcastle Brown Ale a few weeks back. This is what I find this beer is very similar to.

Pours a chestnut colour with decent head and good lacing. Little in the way of carbonation.
Smell has mainly caramelized malt, with a nutty aspect. some coffee
Taste is good, a nice complimenting balance of malt and bitterness on the end. Every bit a scottish ale. Not too sweet, there's a nice bitter finish on it. A nice coating semisweet maltiness. If its not especially deep, it is quite pleasing.
Mouthfeel is quite light, it is very refreshing and sessionable.
An easy drinking tasty scotch ale, doesn't try to be anything its not, and balanced quite well. Lacks a bit in body.
