Thanks to Cheri and Wunderbier for sharing this one! This creates a good creamy head over a clear deep brown body. Good hop aroma tells me this isn’t a "true to style" Scotish Ale, but the label says its a little sidetracked. Good malt hop balance though make this a very drinkable offering.

Reddish amber appearance with a decent head and lacing. Aroma was citrus, pine and wheat bread. Well hopped taste with a degree of earthiness offset by a touch of sweetess. Malty finish that was a little sticky.

humulus (339) - Salem, Missouri, USA - FEB 8, 2005
Despite claims, this beer breaks no styles and certainly has no distinct flavor. It is jus another disappointing IPA in a Trojan bottle. No complexity, no charm, just bland malt and overloaded hops. Pours dark and polluted with floaties. Aroma is hoppy. Flavor is hoppy. Yawn.

desurfer (1224) - Melbourne, Florida, USA - FEB 5, 2005
Body is a clear, deep garnet with a huge tan head. Aroma of smoked malts and caramel. Flavor is slightly bitter but smooth, with a nice malty richness that lingers long after the last sip is taken.

johnyvt (158) - West Hollywood, California, USA - FEB 5, 2005
Deep ruby color with a foamy tan head that stuck around for awhile. This is easily drinkable but also has a noticable hop profile. Nice malty taste on the nose, little bit of creamy vanilla richness to compliment the grassy hops. Not too oily, but has an aftertaste and leaves lacing in the glass.

howie (549) - DeForest, Wisconsin, USA - JAN 24, 2005
Dense, resilient head, deep copper body. Huge hoppy aroma. Nice caramel maltiness, but this is mostly about the hops. Most reminiscent of SN Celebration, but with a heftier hop profile.

Ernest (6354) - Boulder, Colorado, USA - JAN 23, 2005
UPDATED: JUN 14, 2013 Bottle. Head is initially small, frothy, light brown, mostly diminishing. Body is dark amber. Aroma is lightly to moderately malty (cookie), moderately hoppy (resin, grapefruit), lightly yeasty (dough), with a note of black tea. Flavor is moderately sweet, lightly to moderately acidic, lightly to moderately bitter. Finish is lightly sweet, lightly to moderately acidic, moderately to heavily bitter. Medium to full body, watery texture, lively carbonation, lightly to moderately alcoholic. Rather crude and raw and one-dimensional.
