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!
