2.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 6/20
Red color with a two finger tan head. Aroma is malt, caramel and a slight hoppiness. Caramel and sweetness is predominant in taste with a small bitterness. A good one but not my type of beers.

On tap at Ballast Point. Pours a deep brownish colour with a medium tan head. Aroma is a little oaky with caramel and toffee scents. Taste is malty and sweet throughout, very nice. Medium body, creamy on the palate, and softer carbonation. Really liked this one overall.

Malty sweetness aromas come from this clear deep ruby red brew. Smooth malty and slightly caramel flavors with a nice medium bodied brew. Tiny carb bubbles and a hint of bitterness in the end. I get more earthy notes during the aftertaste.

Draught. Pours a mostly clear darker brown color with a smallish off white head on there. Nose has some caramel to it as well as a bit of breadiness coming through. Taste is bready and a bit sweet, though it drinks rather smoothly.

Bomber from Wilbur’s. Appearance: finger khaki head, head persists only as a film, good lacing, ruby amber color, clear. Aroma: caramel, light grape, nutty, chocolate. Palate: medium-full body, average to slightly less than average carbonation, oily texture, dry finish. Taste: sweet caramel with grape and prune fruitiness into nutty sweetness with some chocolate coming in as well, finish is light floral hops. Overall, super smooth, very good, not overly sweet, but not underly so. New favorite for the style.

Really bland and watery. Not the kinda thing you’d imagine the people in Scotland drink, but hey maybe they do.

All the taste of a scottish ale and very well done. Great blend of malts and hops balanced and wonderful on the taste buds. A brew I would like best in winter

Pours a finger of head on a dark straw body.
The aroma is caramel, candy and brown sugar. Rich but nice.
The taste has a good dose of malt but maintains a good balance not letting the sweetness run wild. Caramel mostly.
The texture is thicker with low carbonation.

One of my favorite styles but nit to many made in So Cal. Nice toffee aroma some fruity esters if raisin and prune, but very slight. Did not distract for over all malt experience. Nice rich mouthfeel. Great brew
