3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Draft to taster. Looks decent; light for the style though. A transparent gold with eggshell head that steadily dissipates into lacing. Smells mildly malty with notes of caramel. Tastes like it smells with a solid mouthfeel. Not bad.

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Taster on tap at Barleys on Dublin. Clear golden orange color. Thin ring of white head. Good bready malt, lightly spicy, some caramel. Smooth, kind of crisp, lighter carbonation. Lightly dry finish. Good earthy hop, light pine. Moderate bitter taste, light to moderate sweet. Good hop on this one, not as sweet and malty as other scottish ales. Makes it a little more bright and refreshing for the style.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Draft at Barleys Alehouse (notes). Pours a clear orange amber color with a small off white head. The aroma and flavor have some caramel malt, toasted malts, earthy notes. This was less flavorful than the Scotch ale and one of my least favorites of the beers from here.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
On tap at Barley’s Smokehouse in Columbus
Pour is light mahogany with excellent clarity and a head which dies down fairly quickly but not completely, leaving a very durable ring and spotty lacing.
Light, sweet and malty for style. Perhaps by design, their best seller.
Near medium body is a tad light.
O: This MacLenny’s Scottish Ale was solid, but paled compared to world class beer and the 3 Floyds Robert the Bruce I had during the same visit.

3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Poured on draft. Pours a translucent copper with a nice white head of foam. Aroma has a nice peaty, almost smoky taste with a fruity, near floral hop profile. Sweet and nicely fruity with just a touch of smoke coming through in the finish.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
On tap at the brewery. Pours amber with a short lived white head. Aroma is of green apple, and caramel malt. Body is medium and smooth. Earthy hops, caramel malt and ripe fruit fill the mouth. The finish is long and semidry. Tasty, easy drinking brew.
