3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Draft in a sampler at Barley’s Alehouse. Pours a clear amber color with a small off white head. The aroma has caramel malts, toasted malt, wood, some fruitiness and light peat. The flavor is much of the same; caramel, fruit, peat, wood. Medium bodied. Decent Scotch ale.

3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Poured on draft. Pours a darker copper color with a white head of foam. Aroma is a little more csomplex than the Scottish ale. I get more cereal and caramel. Its almost smoky, but not quite there.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Draft in a sampler at Barley’s #1. Pours a clear amber color with a small off-white head. Aroma of caramel malts, toasted sugar, wood, resin, and light peat. Flavor follows the same lines faithfully. Medium-bodied, with modest carbonation and a soft, malty mouthfeel. Simple Scotch ale. Fun to try next to the bourbon-aged version.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
On cask @ Barleys Pours a light amber with a decent white head. Has a good malty aroma of caramel sweetness. Has a good mouthfeel. The blend was good and the alcohol was hidden well. Has a full body. This one had a good finish and a good aftertaste. I haven’t had a lot of cask but this was a good one to have, full flavored and darn right good. Might not be for everyone but I loved it.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Of a series of Scotch ales. This wee eavy is lighter, carmel, peat, orange colour and some lace. Some carmel and peat in there. A hint of the orange taste. I liked this because of the peatiness.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Sample @ the brewpub (No. 1): Pours a caramel brown with thin head. Aroma is toasted caramel malts and alcohol. Akin to their scottish ale, this is like adding half as many more malts, a tinge more sugar, and a lot more alcohol. Just mildly bitter.

4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
A powerful scotch ale with a deep copper color and thin head. It has a medium body and a slight sweetness that helps fight off a strong alcohol taste. A good beer -- I get it whenever it is available.
