McEwan's Export Type: Amber ABV: 4.5%
Sold in the USA as IPA, I'd probably describe it closer to an Amber. The biggest selling canned ale in the UK. Crisp, refreshing, well carbonated, offers subtle fruitiness, malt and hint of hop spice at the end. Very suitable summertime ale.

McEwan's Scotch Ale Type: Scottish  ABV: 8.5%
One of the best beers available. Strong, dark Scotch-ale  on palate. Nice creamy, foamy palate, but not too heavy. Flavor starts malty, burnt-caramel, turns sherry-like with adequate bitterness in finish. A must for any darker ale drinker.
