Had on tap at Ben Arthur's Bothy, Arrochar, Scotland.

Pours an orange/amber with a thick creamy head and lots of cascading bubbles. Fairly clean nose with a hint of sweet malt, although much of what used to be there seemed to have been obliterated by the nitrogen. Simple sweet malts with a little hop bitterness, but sweetness continues throughout into the short finish. Nice heavy and creamy mouthfeel - nitrogen does make things smooth. Overall a rather boring mass-market 70/-. You can do much better.
