Light amber, low head retention, medium carbonation. Caramel, malty aroma and flavor, dry, crisp. A very good example of a Scottish Ale. Delicious.

4.4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 19/20
I think I found one of my new favourite beers.
Pours a clear coppery color with about a finger of two of solid just slightly off-colour head with a decent retention.
The aroma is extra nice. Some malts, some fruity smell but mostly biscuity and nutty notes, easily picked up by the nose.
The taste is likewise, amazing. Starts sweet and is followed by nice biscuity body, slight bitterness towards the end, and finishes with a nice spicy finish.
Easily drinkable, smooth, delicious. Just great.

What a treat. Deep amber pour with thin off-white head. Smells of toast, fresh baked bread, and caramelizing sugar. Nose translates directly to tastes. Some nutty flavor joins the caramel, but finishes so cleanly with barely a residual sweetness lingering.

4.3 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Straight from 12oz. bottle
Beautiful red-copper color, like new pennies used to look. Aroma of faint citrus. Citrus aroma carries over to palate when drinking. Very clean taste with nothing that shouldn’t be there. Single finger head reforms with every sip from bottle and stays around a while before dissipating. Very refreshing. Like many European brews, the alcohol content is higher in the US than what they sell at home but still a good session beer. I was quite surprised by this. I will be looking to try other Scottish Ales if they are all like this.
Packaging is very attractive, it was what drew my attention to it originally after all. Bottle shape is unique, label and carrier art fit with the beer perfectly. A brew that stands out from the crowd in every respect but a little pricey. Cost me $10.49 for a six of 12oz bottles but worth every penny. I’ll be trying this one again.

Pours thick creamy head, dark amber color. Aroma of malt, some caramel and butter (butterscotch). Taste of some balanced sweetness and earthy bitterness.

4.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Had a can with a nitro widget. Poured very pretty, amber colored at the bottom, nitro bubbles moving down in a dark tan color, and a very fine creamy head on top.
Aroma is solid but unremarkable.
Taste is sweet and surprisingly fruity for a Scottish ale, but in a good way.
Would definitely order again.

0.33l bottle. Dark copper color. Nutty, spicy, caramel, malty and toasted aroma. Taste is sweet with toasted malt and some hoppy spiciness. Medium bodied. Overall it’s really great and complex beer.

Very malty aroma: nuts, caramel, biscuit. Really enjoyable. The beer is reddish amber, clear and a little bit sparkling. Head is ok: white, but doesn’t last for too long. It’s very sweet with a little addition of hops’s flavour. Very soft, balanced taste with a subtle bitterness. Carbonation is lively but not excessive. I love it :)

Pours an amber brown with a rich creamy head. Fair amount of malt and caramel. Have had at brewskis in Fayetteville numbers of times.
