A decent brew and the first ’scottish ale’ I have tried. Very caramely and light coffee.

Very nice flavors, of toffee, nuts, and even a hint of coffee. The aroma is malty, which definately comes out in the flavor. A rather tasty beer.

Just when I had convinced myself that I didn’t really like Scottish ales, I tried this one. Maybe its the virtual absence of bitterness except on the very end of the finish that sells me. Caramel sweet and easy to drink.

Malty and nutty, pouring with a deep caramel/ruby color with lively carbonation and a modest head. The nose has a buttery/hazelnut/malt aroma. The first taste is full-bodied, malted, and finishes with a slightly-sweet flavor and a very gentle hop bite. A light ale with an ABV of only 3.9%.

Lovely brown color. Extremely malty and satisfying. Scotch ales are really growing on me.

Skred (107) - Houma, Louisiana, USA - MAR 23, 2002
Medium brown color, clear, nice but small head, high carbonation. Very malty aroma. Flavor didn’t develop fully until it warmed up some, and was predominantly malt with low bitterness, but carbonation kept it from being too sweet. Very clean finish. This was an old bottle, but it made a good enough impression that I’ll definitely try it again.

Personally I like Scottish Ales, and this isn’t a bad example of the style, so I can’t give it a bad rating.

Nothing special. Like Boddingtons from Scotland.

My favorite beer. Absolutely wonderful flavor, color, aftertaste, everything.

Lovely scotch-amber hue with a fine head that dissipates quickly. I am inclined to think this beer was in the bottle too long as a skunky aroma is present, though when tipping the glass and sniffing closely, a scotch malting is present. This skunkiness is present in the flavor, giving way to a maltier taste as the beer warms, albeit one that fades fast. I was extremely dissapointed in this beer. The smell almost destroys the beer--though the experience betters as the beer warms. Will have to try again.
