I had this from the bottle on the Isle of Mull in Scotland. It poured a nice light brown into the glass with a two finger head that slowly faded. There was a very decent amount of lacing left clinging to the sides. The aroma was biscuit and brown bread crust. The taste was very smooth with just a little bit of subtle hops. The mouth feel was very light yet not at all watery. The finish was crisp and refreshing. Very drinkable. I enjoyed this fine all over all and would get it again. I'd like to do a comparison with the draft or canned version.

Bottled but sadly it's a clear bottle
Now without the aid of a safety net Pours a nice mid brown body with barely visible off white head but responds to oral syringe to bolster that head
Smells of stewed hops and cigars
There is that in the flavour with copper coins too
Not too bad mouthfeel for the low abv and okay carbonation
Above average
If offered I wouldn't turn down a free one

Amber colour. Quickly dissipating head.
Hoppy aroma. Malt detected.
Not much flavour but what is there is reasonably well balanced between malt and hops.
Ordinary feel.
Adequate at best.
