Bottle shared by Peter Bognar. Aroma plain caramel and metallic. Clear deep amber colour. Taste is again caramel sweetness, plain, almost no flavour. Ambiguous bitterness. Not much to say. Finish is plain bitter.

Reddish brown in color. Aroma was unremarkable. Skunky taste and oily. Finish was unpleasant. I strongly disliked this beer and cannot recommend this beer at all. I will not have it again.

Not good and what did I just run over? First mistake was that I mistook this US Version for the Scottish/Export Version. I guess someone in their infinite wisdom decided that sending a beer in a clear bottle across seas was a good idea. This was my second mistake as I’m sure the canned version was better. As with my previous experience with their Wee Heavy, skunkiness dominated all aromas. It disappated slightly in the glass near the end to reveal a mild malty sweetness. Color was a light copper with a small head. The palate was light without much substance, carbonation slightly below average. Again, the flavors were hard to distinguish through the aroma but traditional Scottish malts and yeast were present with carmelization and little to no hops. This one needed help.

3.5 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 14/20
When poured from the draught can, the aroma was subtle with hints of toasted and nutty malts and sweet bread yeast, and the appearance combined a copper color with a nitro head that builds slowly from bubbles into a pillowy, creamy off-white foam. The taste is mildly sour, slightly sweet, and a touch bitter; also, the palate combines a medium body, creamy texture, flat carbonation, and an abrupt finish.

As much as I wanted to love this ale I found it unremarkable. A bit thin, and I think that there was some deterioration due to light.
