Poured a clear dark copper color, medium head. Aroma of caramel, sugarcane, vanilla, nuts. Light bitter, med lite sweetness. Average carbonation. Finishes off a little weird and week, but overall not bad. Starts off nice. It would be nice to see a bit more kick and warming alcohol in here.

From notes: Growler from Collegeville, PA location. Pours ruby red with a 3-finger, but thin, bone-colored head that left a decent amount of lacing. Caramelly roasted malt aroma, with maybe a note of yeast underneath. Body was a touch on the thin side. Sweet, roasted malt flavor, with biscuity yeast in the finish.

Bottle. Pours a nice dark tea brown with a brown head. Molasses nose with slight toffee. Taste is actually pretty good. Caramel is prominent with no hop flavors. Not really deep or complex but certainly drinkable.

3.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Purchased as a 12 oz. bottle from Baruni’s Bar and Hotel in Baden, PA. Pours medium brown with low carbonation and about a quarter inch of foam. Everyone is going to draw comparisons to McEwan’s and in that contest the Jolly Scot can hold his own. A low dose of sugar in the formula means you can drink more than one and not have to worry about splitting your kilt.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
12oz poured into a pint. Smells of confused citurs and honey. No withstanding head. Taste is flat, uneventful, and low brow. Color is a murky amber and red. There is a faint sweetness that I hoped would linger more but subsides fast as the mild carbination follows through. Did not leave me too jolly after the experience.
