COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION

A full-bodied and malty ale with a rounded, smooth fruit palate and a tight, creamy head that laces all the way down the glass. Rich in colour with a smooth, creamy texture and a distinctively strong flavour.

This was a decent scottish ale. Amber in color with a lasting white head. Tasted somewhat metallic but still a decent beer.

blank (996) - Austin, Texas, USA - FEB 16, 2003
good ale. light clean flavor. drinkable, yet un remarkable. It seems to be more about golf then about the beer

WabashMan (1018) - Noblesville, Indiana, USA - FEB 11, 2003
A pretty good scots ale. Fairly well rounded with a nice flavor. Just needs a little more kick.

CapFlu (4781) - Victoria, British Columbia, CANADA - FEB 7, 2003
(Bottle) Pours a medium, creamy white head and an amber body. Aroma of roasted malt and fruit. Subtle, smokey flavour. Rather bland ale.

Good blend of many flavors, nothing too powerful about this beer. Worth a try is you like ambers.

dolemike1 (1288) - Jeannette, Pennsylvania, USA - FEB 3, 2003
Dark amber, small head that vanished quickly, some malt, toffee aroma, bland flavor, thin and watery mouthfeel, not impressive.

khayman70 (154) - Indianapolis, Indiana, USA - FEB 1, 2003
Dark amber color, with little head. Not much nose upon the first smell, after smelling for a bit could detect a bit of smoke and malt.Very good smokey malt flavor. Can drink plenty of this fine ale.

Ungstrup (30467) - Citizen of the universe, DENMARK - FEB 1, 2003
A dark amber beer with a good head. The aroma is slight with notes of fruit and smoked malt. The flavor is very soft and good with a light smoke note as well as some fruitiness. A nice beer.

BillKismet (3502) - Seattle, Washington, USA - JAN 31, 2003
Amber bodied with a delicious inch high contoured cream head. Toasted malt aroma with some smoke notes. Lovely malt taste--has a barrel quality to it, to me this is the epitome of a scotch ale.

presario (4901) - Stampede City, Alberta, CANADA - JAN 21, 2003
UPDATED: AUG 12, 2004 Beautiful aroma and appearance. Good head, caramel coloured tiny bubbles with good lacing. Definate smokiness to the flavour and a saltiness as well. Heavy flavour takes a few sips to get used to. Light fruit at the start. Bitterness and hops in the back. Definately a flavour you'll remember. Can feel the carbonation on your tongue.
