Williams Brothers 80/-
79A well-rounded, ruby ale, a welcomingly autumnal beer in both colour and taste.
Williams Brothers Alba Scots Pine Ale
78A fine, fresh-tasting, interesting creation (described as a ‘triple' on the label).
Williams Brothers Birds & Bees
80A tasty deviation from the citrus golden ale theme: this one is honeyed and moreish, even though elderflowers and lemon zest are added.
Williams Brothers Ceilidh
80Tasty, if rather nutty, straw-coloured Scottish lager, thankfully resisting the urge to go citrus.
Williams Brothers Ebulum
78A very successful strong ruby ale that is complex but well balanced.
Williams Brothers Fraoch Heather Ale
78A well-balanced, intriguing, dark golden beer based on a 16th century recipe. The hot wort is infused with heather flowers and bog myrtle, which presumably is responsible for the spicy flavours.
Williams Brothers Gold
80A good-value, refreshing Scottish bitter using seven types of malt. Lots of clean flavours for its modest strength.
Williams Brothers Good Times
75A tasty, hoppy, light amber bitter augmented by the inclusion of elder flower and meadowsweet (a fragrant herb).
Williams Brothers Grozet
75A well conceived, easy-drinking ‘gooseberry and wheat ale' that also contains the herb bog myrtle.
Williams Brothers Harvest Sun
80A pure and simple, zesty beer that hits the spot for anyone looking for a dry, hoppy and crisp session ale with plenty of body.
Williams Brothers IPA
79A very decent IPA served in a smart, tempting bottle.
Williams Brothers Joker
78A well-balanced, tasty golden ale from Scotland with a full finish. Good summer drinking.
Williams Brothers Kelpie Seaweed Ale
75A deep ruby ale designed to replicate the old Scottish practice of fertilising barley fields with seaweed. This seaweed goes into the mash tun instead.
Williams Brothers Midnight Sun
75A strange porter, laced with root ginger. Don't expect fiery gingery flavours: it's more of a cool, almost minty, effect. For me, it doesn't really work, but this is a Tesco award winner, so I must be...
Williams Brothers Roisin
68A rosé-coloured beer made with tayberries, a cross between a raspberry and a blackberry. Overall, just too bitter, though.
