Poured from a 33cL bottle into a BrewDog cervoise glass. Best before July 2011.

A: Brief, bubbly head sits on top of a ruddy brown body, just barely translucent.

S: Heavily metallic, to the exclusion of almost everything else, except perhaps some malt.

T: Very average. The label reads, in part: "St Giles is a dark, smooth and malty contemporary taste of Edinburgh...developed to be a robust, rich and well balance beer full of body and flavour...designed to be easy drinking and a great accompaniment to food." It is dark, smooth, and malty. It is well-balanced and easy drinking. It would be a nice dinner beer. But it is not robust or rich, full of body or flavour.

M: Smooth, with little carbonation, but watery and tepid.

D: It was gone before I knew it! Not a great beer, but a very easy drinking one. I would consider having another.

One of Stewart's new bottled range. I classed this as a Scottish ale, for even though it has some characteristic of a dark mild, its a bit on the stronger side.

Brownish-copper, and slightly cloudy. There is a good amount of gloppy yeast still left in the bottle. Sweet malty smell with some smokiness to it. Bitter hints in the background. Toffee and perhaps hazelnuts.

Sweeter taste, but still retaining some of the bitter smokiness and the nutty flavour. Almost a mix of a dark mild and a Scottish ale.

A little rough on the tongue when served cold, but as it warms it evens out and is a nice beer to drink.
