COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
A slightly malty butterscotch-colored ale. We carmelize the malt at the end of the mashing process, producing toffee-like undertones. Hoppy end notes, thanks to the organic Tasmanian Pride of Ringwood, make this one a sophisticated ale.

Sampled at the brewpub. Clear amber. Sweet and malty with the Scottish notes that should be there. Floral and caramel hints.

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.

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.

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.

chinchill (1776) - South Carolina, USA - AUG 27, 2013
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.

Rich butterscotch aroma and palate, nice, simple, yet satisfying without being over the top

JStax (2957) - Devola/Marietta, Ohio, USA - APR 14, 2013
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.

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.
