I got the draught version in a can. Little to on smell. It poured wonderfully though. As I poured it into the glass the it was a creamy color and slowly settled into a dark brown clear liquid. It was almost cascading. The head it formed was creamy and lasted until I was finished with the beer but sadly the flavor was very mild. The ale was like the head creamy all the way down. It was a very interesting drink to have and I would recomend to anybody watch it be poured.

2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
12 ounce bottle purchased at The Davis Beer Shoppe. Aroma is mildly sweet, with light caramel. Light peat. Some toast, too. Not much else. Ok. Transparent amber body with a small, cream-colored head. Starts with a fair amount of malt sweetness, before this becomes a little husky and grainy in the middle. More toastiness. Finishes with a mild bitterness. Pretty straight-forward, and not too exciting.

2.8 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
From a bottle, aroma of fruity hops and caramel. Beautiful deep amber color. Taste is sweet, caramel, bitterness and a little sour.The finish is bitter at the back of the mouth and very brief. There is a slightly odd flavor that I cannot identify. Not unpleasant, but not truly satisfying either. To be honest, I have very little experience with Scottish ales, so I may be off on my expectations.
