Uglyradio (791) - Greenville, South Carolina, USA - JAN 7, 2003
Pours a dark clear amber color with a big, off-white rocky head that lingers for a while. Strong hoppy and malty aroma. Medium bodied and strong, quite a robust scottish red ale (bastardized according to the brewers...What the hell is a Scottish red ale?). Flavor is quite malty at first, but the hops kick in towards the end and in the finish. Very good, me likes, me drink again..

Nice dark amber color. Malty aroma with a hint of roastiness. Nice roasted flavor that ends slightly sweet. Quite an enjoyable brew.

Bottle. Deep red with a laced beige head. Slight fruit aroma with flavors of berries and a dry finish. Tap in mid-October: Reddish brown with a strong hop bitterness. Malty aroma and a little sweet. Interesting graininess with some smoke burnt flavors.

Marc (486) - Yokosuka, JAPAN - OCT 23, 2002
Pudding brown with less head then a debutante. Malt for days, fresh cookie and chocolate with some resinous hops with little bits of brewers yeast laguidly floating around the body. Malt covered hop cones, campfire smokieness, huge in the mouth, Long vinous finish that tapers into an acorn aftertaste.

looks like more of a brown rocket ale, surprising smokiness and nicely hopped

This brewery consistently surprises me. It begins with an intriguing malty smell that is reminiscent of sniffing a handful of crushed barley. The head is big, solid white, and wanders around the sides of the glass like icy stalagmites. This is really red, no lie, a very copperish red, but still red and crystal clear. The malt in this is very pronounced and hits you with a nice butterscotch sweetness. It goes a long way in capturing the raw essence of malted barley without too much overkill. The elegant hop finish is a wonderful counterpoint to the big malt taste and balances out just right. Wonderful beer.

on tap GABF 02: Hoppy aroma with enough malt nose to let you know it has some. Red color with nice head, full robust body, ends fairly bitter for a while. Flavor is deep and wonderful.

Every single beer I’ve had from this brewery has been great. This was no exception. Great balance of hops/malt. Beautiful dark red color. This is what I like in a Scottish ale. Bear Republic can’t go wrong.

beautiful deep amber/mahogony. Decent head and lace. Nose of carmel, peaty smokiness, sprucy hops are there but not in the forefront. Thick body, sweet caramelly like malts, peaty twangs, maybe subtle spices lurking about, sappy hops in abundance but kept at bay nicely by the sweetness of the malt. I thought it was gonna be hoppier to be honest. This is good but missing a bright spot, flavors seemed a bit dull/muddled. Maybe its a little to thick? But anyways, its good, hearty, smooth and has a nice kick. Thank you herbjones.
