phaleslu (6905) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - MAR 15, 2012
Cask at Bodega. Just called "Scotch Ale" but I think this is it. Pours a hazy orange-amber with a tiny off-white head. Aroma of peat, toffee, toasted malts, earth, dust, and a surprising amount of chocolate. Flavor of chocolate, toffee, peat, grass, toast, and wood. Medium-bodied, with a sweet, sticky, an peaty mouthfeel and minimal carbonation. Cool and different.

Pint from the cask at the brewpub. Pours medium dark brown with an off-white head. Nose is fair amount of malt with a with maple, earth, caramel, and floral notes. Flavor is similar with the light carbonation of a cask making this one really shine. Very enjoyable.

JaBier (5066) - Capital City, Ohio, USA - MAR 8, 2009
On tap at the Smokehouse. Pours clear red with a medium off-white head. Good hop and malt balance in the nose. Malty flavor with a nice hop finish. Not as strong as I remember.

In short: A superior Scottish Ale. One of the best one I’ve ever had.
How: Tap at brewpub (SmokeHouse location, AleHouse #2)
The look: Clear golden body with a small off-white head.
In long: Shy nose but surprisingly tasty. Woody malts. Lots of sweet malts with a sweet flavour evoking a good baklava. Well balanced with plenty of dry grassy hops. No alcohol presence whatsoever. Dangerously drinkable for an 8% beer. Barley’s really need to set a meeting up and have Robert Burn teach MacLenny how to brew a solid Scottish Ale.

Growler via trade with Puddintane. Shared with bikesnandbeers, my girlfriend Cyn, his girlfriend Jessi, and her friend. Pours copper with a tan ring. Nose is sweet and malty. Taste is sweet malty, with a lingering caramel taste. Overall nice, a little light, but good.

Shared, thanks to dickinsonbeer. Clear amber pour with a thin head. Aroma is sweet fruit / pears, and some grainy and earthy malt. The flavor is the same as the aroma with a little toasted malt element.

notalush (5070) - Denver, Colorado, USA - MAR 15, 2008
Shared by Dickinsonbeer, I believe via a handbottle (thanks, Paul!) - clear copper beer, with a soapy lace - smells of roasted malts and corn syrup, with very faint earthy character that was so hard to make out it may well have been my imagination - really sweet, with strong burnt sugar, roasted malts, a bit of nuttiness - some corn syrup, diacetyl, and phenolics throughout - this would not go well with my haggis at all.

hophead75 (2010) - Largo, Florida, USA - MAR 13, 2008
Shared by Dickinsonbeer. Amber in color with a small off white head. Aroma: alot of toasted malts, some light fruity notes and some earth and light smoke. Taste is malty, with toasted malts, caramel, lightly smoky, very smooth overall. Medium bodied, easy drinking. Some light hop bitterness in the finish. Thanks Paul, this was good.

Growler thanks to Puddintane in the mystery 3.0 swap. Thanks David!!! Growler arrived with zero leakage- and it shows- carbonation is full and the head is long lived. Pours- a nice crystal clear pretty deep coppery amber with great carb, nice head and nice lacing. Aroma is initially nutty and fruity- light cherry skin, apricot and plum, also some sake elements along with an earthy smokiness, and some phenolic cleanser hints- but also reminds me slightly of the big fresh toasty maltiness you get from a maibock. Great toasty and nutty flavors- light hints of smoke and earth- definitely subdued more in the flavor, while the malt backbone comes though- sweet and caramelly with toffee hints,fruts come through a bit in the flavor- this time mostly some green raisin, lightly toasted bread, with a sharp phenolic kick which isnt all that bad, but not that great either- just wierd. Very mild hops all the way through- with a nice smooth clean finish. Honeslty not what I was expecting, but still pretty good overall. Nice beer to enjoy for 2300.
