From the can , it pours a darker amber with a small head. Caramel malt in the nose. The mouth enjoys the malt flavor, caramel of course and very slightly sweet. Enjoyable.

Poured a clear dark amber color with just a little under one fingers worth of off white head. The nose is caramel with biscuits. You definitely get a malty ready taste with some caramel like the smell suggests. The feel is medium low with low carbonation but a little creaminess to it. Overall this is an above average beer. I have had many of them and have enjoyed it each time.

Very beautiful color, rich amber. Very nice head, holds for little time with nice cascade effect on pour. Smells like malt and honey/syrup. Taste is smooth with little bite, opens up nicely with a full flavor in mouth. Has a background oak or something cannot pick out. Feel is very nice and clean.
This is a great any day beer, very easy to drink and very rounded taste and feel, cheers on this one.

Lacks proper malt flavors and tastes like it was made with syrups. Yes, it is drinkable but only the shadow of a properly crafted Scottish beers. You might pick it over Bud, but you might not.
