Copper/ruby colored, with caramel malt flavor and some malt and fruity aroma. The finish is fairly smooth but lacks complexity and balance.

Unremarkable darker ale... listed as an 80 shilling, but seems somewhat on the weak side

Tap at split Rock ’04. Orange with a tannish head, clear. Malty with a slight sour aroma. Big malty yet flat flavor. Strange. Lousy finish.

r464 (2254) - Earth, Pennsylvania, USA - JUL 30, 2004
Copper color. Spicy, malty aroma. A sweetness to it, but with spice in there (maybe citrus, cloves, and other flavors). Not objectionable, but light compared to other Scottish Ales.

beermaniac (86) - Pennsylvania, USA - JUL 22, 2004
Aroma: Nice, sweet malty nose. No hop, which is ok for style. Appearance: Light brown color, with a slight tinge of red. Flavor: Caramelly, sweet malt flavor dominates throughout the glass. Very slight hopping. Somewhat smoky in the finish which adds a little complexity. Mouthfeel: Medium light mouthfeel. Overall: Very malty and too style. Very solid Scottish Ale.

UPDATED: DEC 10, 2008 [draft - 10th Annual PA Microbrewers Fest, Pennsylvania Brewing Co. - Pittsburgh, PA] Poured a deep amber color with a very thin white head that went away quickly. Sweet malts and some toffee in the nose. Taste reminded me of Killians but it wasn’t so stale. Nice and malty with a good sweet finish.

Pours a nice, deep amber with no head.Aroma is of malt, malt and hints of toffee and caramel. Medium-bodied with good maltiness, also tastes of a little caramel and other things. A lot like Killian's but better than that. This is good stuff, but nothing to get excited about.
