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.

Decent Scottish ale, ruby red in color, very tiny off-white head, decently balanced, sweety malty flavors with a slight hop-spiciness, smooth & drinkable

Deep ruby color with no head. Sweet lingering molasses finish with ever so slight hop in finish. Lingering malt aftertaste.

Very malty & sweet. Weird smell - like compost. Deceptive as it looks more like a brown ale. A little too malty for me. Made up for a weak start with a good finish.

Very malty, and too much orange for a Scott. I did not enjoy this beer at all.

MilkmanDan (1943) - Eagan, Minnesota, USA - JUL 28, 2003
To be blunt, Scottish Ale, my fanny. Decent nose, noticeable scotchiness, but tastes strong and has an oddly tangy taste. Ends obnoxiously cloying. Just not a good thing.

one if ABCs better offerings. a nice dark nut brown with a bready malt nose. lots of malt with overtones of chocolate, bread pudding and vanilla. a slight peaty acidity in the finish.

Not normally my style beer, but it was offered to me. Not bad. Is not as smokey as other Scottish I've tried. Once was enough.

Eh ... not much to this one. Pleasant and lightly smokey ... but barely. Not something to write home about either way.
