Bottle. Mahagony color with a big beige head. Roasted malt and citrus hop aroma. Very good and surprising hop flavor (citrus and some pine) combining wih roasted malt. A little plum fruitiness in the background. Smooth flavor that mostly works, but I can see I’d get tired of it.

Pours deep ruby red with thick tan head. Nose is hoppy. somewhat sweet with almost citrus-like character. Flavor has a nice balance of malt and bitterness. There is a tingle on the tongue. Woodsy, pinelike finish. No typical red here.

frylock (1135) - Atlanta, Georgia, USA - OCT 10, 2004
Mahogney color with a large fluffy off white head. Aroma is of malts, rye, and some light smoke. Malty, some smokey peat notes, piney hop bitterness. Well balanced.

Hopgeek (90) - San Diego, California, USA - OCT 7, 2004
Auburn/brown and makes a thick off white head. Laces nicely down the glass. Not much aroma to speak of, slight malt character. Flavor starts off hoppy strong and finishes very mild. Nice balance here between hop and malt. I taste a bit of a woodlike character here. Palate is thick and creamy, leaves a light coating as it goes down. It is incredibly smooth and easy to drink.

Holy hops batman - not that that’s a bad thing. Beautiful copper colour with a fairly minimal head. Good hop/malt blend throughout with some sweetness and some citric bitterness. Nice balanced medium-bitter linger to it as well. Cheers to IPFreely and DougShoemaker.

Crosling (1864) - Fort Collins, Colorado, USA - OCT 3, 2004
Metallic red in color. Very handsome. Very pleasant and very frangrant aroma. Caramel, peat and toffee malt backbone but the hop fragrance is what shines with an immense amount of floral, spicy and citrus notes. Lovely. Malt accentuated flavor with tons of caramel and butterscotch. The hops are floral, very pleasant, moderately bitter and barely acidic and display flavors of grapefruit and wood. Centennial hops. Yum Yum. Great beer.

Dark brown with red tint and hop fumes. Head very thick and will eventually settle while lacing the glass. Being a red ale I didn’t expect it to be this bitter or extremely hoppy but thats exactly what it is. Flavour has citrus with pine background and perhaps some kind of sugars. Sharp all the way to the finish.

MullMan (1099) - New York, USA - SEP 16, 2004
ruby-amber in color w/ a big & foamy tannish head. light reddish hue to the head also. hoppy & sweet malty nose. malty flavor and not much carbonation. slightly sticky, watery mouthfeel. some hop at the finish but not too bitter. malt sweetnes comes in stronger upon warming. nice red ale, enough hops to make it CA style.

I can see why this was recommended to me as a scottish ale with really nice hop character. THe typical scottish flavors were there, including a very nice malt character. Hops were quite good, as well. I really enjoyed this one.

Poured a reddish amber color, and had a hoppy, semi sweet aroma. Flavor was bitter and slightly sweet as well, but is a great beer!
