This flavorful sweet ale has a smooth malt finish balanced against a light hop flavor. This beer is very quaffable and has become a brewpub favorite throughout the United States.

DoublEE (782) - South Euclid, Ohio, USA - AUG 29, 2013
Pours a clear, brown/amber color with a lighter tan color along the bottom of the glass. 1/5 inch head of an off-white color. Poor retention and poor lacing. Smells of roasted malt, sweet malt, yeast, caramel, and slight chocolate. Fits the style of a Scottish Ale. Mouth feel is smooth and crisp with an average carbonation level. Tastes of roasted malt, yeast, slight sweet malt, slight caramel, hint of dark citrus, and slight grain. Overall, a good body, blend, and aroma.

Sweet, reddish tinge, I expected more smoky notes, but this was still a decent attempt. I canít say Iím a huge fan of the style.

bubbleflubber (2134) - Asheville, North Carolina, USA - APR 17, 2013
Pours deep amber into the glass, with a diminishing eggshell head that reduces to sparse lacing, almost no ring of bubbles. The nose is of chocolates and malt. The flavors are similar, light toast, caramel, toffee, milk chocolate and a definitive Yoo-Hoo Chocolate Drink essence. The body is light, active on the palate, not seriously "substantive" nor complex, but itís by far the best mass-produced offering from the brewery Iíve had in a long line of trial offerings. It finishes a bit doughy (as is the predominance of many Appalachian brews), but has enough Scotch Ale contingencies to at least be considered an attempt.

radio_nowhere (1329) - Maryland, USA - JAN 30, 2013
12oz bottle from variety pack. Poured into pint glass, very deep clear amber-copper color with creamy off-white head. Aroma of caramel malt, brown sugar, toast and some chocolate notes. Taste is very creamy, roasty sweetness dominating, notes of toffee with the slightest of earthy hops. Medium body, malty and sweet. My first Scottish ale, maybe a few other examples can win me over for this style.
