Mild aroma of yeast. Nice red color with a thick white head. Flavor of malt. Overall the beer is mild and very drinkable. A session beer.

Deep brown/copper, light medium head. Toffee, smoke, caramel and M A L T. In a couple of weeks I'm going to Scotland to check local brews profoundly...

Slick (1969) - Thief River Falls, Minnesota, USA - SEP 29, 2003
darker amber color,Medium sized tan head that had a decent staying power and decent lace left behind.Sweet malty,caramel aroma with a light smoky side to it.The taste was great malty,caramel and a very nice smokey flavor nicely sweet.The after tase comes off as malty and smokey with a semi-sweet coating.This is a very nice brew,it's not quite in the league of a JP grays but it's close and very well done.

Mahoganey colored body with a big white head. Peat malt, aroma with a slight sour note. Sweet, dry with somkey undertones. Nice lacing all the way down. Improves as it warms

igneous1 (1492) - Davenport, Iowa, USA - SEP 27, 2003
deep amber..randomly spaced bubbles, but other than that, not much of a head. big time malt aroma, lots of peat and smoke. lots of chocolate and roastiness in the flavor with buttery toffee becoming more apparent as it warms. way better than i'd imagined.

Dalle (1145) - Skørping, DENMARK - SEP 20, 2003
Large beige head. Dark red-brown. Nice malt and hop character off-set by a little sharpness.

Very enjoyable scottish ale. Caramel dominates the aroma . The flavor is a nice hop, malt and sugar balance with a smokey linger.

Kåstå (1273) - Mol, BELGIUM - SEP 8, 2003
Dark amber coloured beer with a medium light brown head. Molasses, smoke and allspice aroma. The taste is almost pure molasses with a smoky light bitter aftertaste. An interesting beer but not anything I would drink a lot off.

CaptainCougar (7129) - Columbia, Maryland, USA - SEP 7, 2003
Pours a clear dark copper with a big lacing off-white head. Thick, sweet, lightly caramelized somewhat acidic aroma with a hint of peat malt. Body is thick, sweet and complex, with a lasting smoked malt finish. Enjoyable throughout, a great Scottish ale.

Hopheads have plenty of brews to choose from, this one is far malt lovers. What a Scottish Ale should taste like and it's actually from Scotland.
