a little weak for a scotish ale, but good nontheless

urbnhautebourg (997) - Annapolis, Maryland, USA - OCT 1, 2002
This is genteel, cardigan-tattersall-and-tweed ale, no kilt-lifter. Finely rounded malt underpinned elegantly with smoke and hops. Very classy, but could be more fun.

A red beer with a good head. It has a slightly fruity aroma. And a good sweet powerful flavor.

Brodie (540) - Blowing Rock, North Carolina, USA - SEP 23, 2002
Malty aroma - caramel, toasted malt, a little nuttiness. Brilliant amber color. Malt dominates the flavor, tastes a little like Newcastle but with better balance. Would lend itself well to drinking in mass quantity.

UPDATED: MAY 26, 2009 Original Rating, September 21, 2002, Bottle:There is an overwhelming nut flavor to it, which personaly I do not find appealing. Other than that, a strong brew. 7/5/5/3/14 Re-rating, May 26, 2008, Bottle: Again, I leave my original rating as a testament on how NOT to do ratings when you start out. Clear dark copper color with a thin head. A nutty and caramel aroma. Tastes of old, stale, earthy hops, and not entirely in a bad way. A little nutty. An almost vegetal hop finish. Not bad. Oddly enough, my original final score still stands.

Draft- You can’t beat the look of a nitro-draft beer. Eternal thick head covering a dark brown body. I was somewhat surprised (and let down) by the bland flavor of this beer. Nice and easy to drink but it lacks something.

Scotsman99 (7) - Ferndale, Michigan, USA - SEP 20, 2002 does not count
Something about a nitro pull that just soothes the back of the tongue. Nice malty mouthfeel with a slightly mild hop finish. Nice one.

Jfishback13 (275) - Royal Oak, Michigan, USA - SEP 19, 2002
UPDATED: MAY 16, 2003 I had this after Arcadia Starboard Stout, so I might have been corrupted. This beer had the same smokyness, a nice dry finish, a good roasted malt flavor... it just lacked a little something that it's evening predecessor had. A good Ale though.

Medium brown color, medium head. A medium bodied ale. Malty, somewhat nutty taste. There is a smoky undertone. Good hop/malt balance. Mouthfeel is a little thin, slight off taste (undefined). Finish is clean and smooth. Aftertaste is slightly bitter.
