The Borderers drink! Not the greatest beer out there but it is my first choice for a night out, currently costing no more than £4 a pint in my local area. Pours a dark reddish colour with a dark creamy head. The main attraction is the smooth and creamy texture that I love every time. Not too much in flavour, very malty but yet balanced between light flavour and mildly bitter. Low alcohol content lets you have a few before you get tipsy. Always worth a try.

Completely tasteless. Whether this has anything to do with the abv or not, I've yet to determine. A pity, as the Belhaven St Andrews is much more flavoursome at just over 4%...... not dissimilar to Marstons Pedigree in its taste. It quenches the thirst, but water's cheaper and has just about as much flavour!
