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.

4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 15/20
Youíd be hard-pressed to dock any points from Piper Down when it comes to style guidelines. This looks/tastes/feels like a Scottish Ale. Reddish brown shade with a cream-colored head. Malty toasted aroma - biscuit. Rich taste with a fat caramel note. Some subtle herbal hoppiness but hardly any bitterness to speak of. Extremely smooth with a short finish. Not especially complex but itís the kind of thing I could drink almost endlessly.

4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Style is a fave and this does not disappoint. Pours dark mahogany with fast-disappeared head, leaving a ring. Aroma is sweet malty caramel and a touch of smoke. Flavor is malty too, maybe a little one-dimensional, but really tasty. Smooth and clean finish make this very enjoyable. Only complaints are this is a little on the light side and not as complex as some better style offerings.

2.9 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Pours a cola like color. No head at all. Deep malty and fruit aroma. Sweet malty and some dark fruit. Hints towards a barley wine then quickly pulls back.

3.3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle from Whole Foods Market in Campbell, CA. Aroma is bready, light caramel, burnt sugar, some metal. Taste is bready, light brown sugar. Not a whole lot going on here. Having side-by-side with Pumpkin Down (which benefits from the additional spice / flavor).

3.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bottle from the mixed pack. Pours medium amber brown, clear, nice head. Sweet caramel malt focused aroma. Flavor is rich caramel malts, a hint of toast and very faint raisin. Finish is very faintly floral hops, mostly consumed by the malts, with drying bitterness. Enjoyable brew in a style I donít have very often. Liked it.

On tap at ballast point little Italy. Nice looking caramel beer. Aroma fairly heavy on the dishrag side for me. Bready malts dominate. A little thin.

3.5 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bomber from Julioís. Pours out a rich deep amber color. Pillowy tan head settles to almost nothing. Well balanced sweet malty notes. Easy drinking and very tasty.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Pours a rich leathery brown from a bottle. Donít get me wrong, the aroma and flavor arenít leathery. Just the color. The aroma is very slightly of caramel and toffee. Flavor is kind of like a very dry cream soda or something. But absolutely no leather. Good no-leather beer.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle pour into nonic pint glass from One Stop Market. Aroma is caramel, light fruit. Appearance is mainly clear (light haze), reddish dark amber with consistent trace sparkle, fizzy ephemeral finger-width light brown head (like a soda) and no lacing. Taste is moderately sweet caramel, English hops. Palate is medium-to-full bodied with thick, sticky texture, average carbonation and mildly sweet caramel finish. Overall, a straightforward Scottish ale without tremendously bold aroma/taste--especially for the heavy palate--and a pour more resembling a soda. Kinda weird.
