Big floral and resinous hop nose with caramel and roast malt notes. Clean with a touch of bread dough and crytal malt flavors. Nice bitterness big for style but fine with me. Nice mild dark fruit comes in at mi palate, Plums and raisins. Resinous and malty mouthfeel. Big resin and oil finish with some roasted malt.

grant (842) - Colorado Springs, Colorado, USA - MAR 13, 2005
Dark, shiny ruby body, discordantly light head. Wholesome malt aroma with oatmeal and lightly roasted coffee. Very soft body with a pleasant creaminess. Moderately sweet sugar cookie malts balanced with a gentle, clean warming bitterness. Finishes a touch thinner than I’d like, despite the creaminess. Killer aroma.

nice murky brown liquid with a tan noteable head. wild hops flush the nares, distinct malt nose. warm full bodied toasted malt with a great balance of citrus hops. not cloying in the palate at all. nice and smooth. never bittered as the beer warmed. very flavorful. easy to drink every day....not over the top. well done!

Poured a cloudy burgandy brown color with a medium sized, light tan head that left nice lacing on the glass. Aroma of floral hops, tropical and citrus fruits, with light caramel malt as well. Chewy sweet malts, lightly spiced, moderate hop bitterness. Full mouthfeel.

lamas (1551) - Washington DC, USA - MAR 4, 2005
22 oz. bottle. Pour is a DEEP amber with THICK tan head and a few BIG floaties. Aroma is yeasty, hoppy and of strawberries. Taste is very smooth and well-balanced. Begins with some mildly sweet malts and finishes with some bitter hops. Some cherries are present in taste. A little dry in the finish. Nothing exceptional about the taste of this beer. Somehow it manages to be thick yet lacking substantial flavoring. Smooth and earthy are the words.

Bottle. Toasty nose. Wow. What a great beer. Good hop presence with a solid malt backbone. Lots of hops, earthiness, caramel, and bitterness. Very well done and quite enjoyable.

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.
