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.

4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
UPDATED: JUN 18, 2003 Rerate 06/17/03: Tried the cask-conditioned version of this and I liked it a lot. Served in a snifter. Pours a dark orangish-brown color with a thin beige head. Pleasantly heady malt and alcohol aroma. Nice full flavors of malt, caramel and a little spice. This is a very smooth beer, one that goes well with a meal or as a session beer. Worth trying if you can get it while it is in rotation. I still like the Robert Burns more though. 04/08/02 (3.2): Served at room temperature, this is a beer to be taken slowly. Not as good as their Robert Burns, it had a bit of a syrupy texture to it. Still not a bad offering though. A good dessert beer.

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.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Took me a while to figure out the name of this one, as the waitress just told me Scotch Ale. Had back in May, looked alright, a bit light in color. Flavor was malty but with caramel and a nice thick finish. Decent enough, with a small amount of hops.

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.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
On tap at Barley’s #1. Poured clear coppery orange/red with a thin-medium off-white head. Aroma was dominated by caramelized malt, very sweet and fruity. I’ve had Scotch Ales with greater complexity, but this does "more with less," with lots of brown sugar, light fruit, juniper berries, toast, and a somewhat salty aftertaste. Medium-bodied. Very nice.

3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
On firkin at alehouse #1 - Pours ruby red with no real head to speak of. Aromas of cherry, caramel, some brown sugar, and a touch of alcohol. Flavor is caramel, cherry, and brown sugar. Palate is medium bodied and a tad to the watery side. Alcohol is covered pretty well until the burn in the finish. Could benefit from a little more body but overall a pretty drinkable brew.
