A lovely traditional scottish ale. Very smooth with a buttery and caramel aftertaste. A wonderful ale for the Fall.

A beer style that I truly enjoy, but unfortunately this particular Scottish Ale missed the mark with me. It poured a large sized creamy ivory head with fine-medium sized bubbles that was mostly lasting. The body was uncarbonated with a reddish-brown hue. The nose was malty, notes of caramel and butter. The flavor was slightly bitter and sour with a fore and aftertaste to it. The mouthfeel was smooth and medium bodied. This beer left a spider web like lacing.

This brew poured a very large head of fine to medium sized mostly lasting light brown colored bubbles that left behind a semi-opaque dark brown colored slightly carbonated body and great lacing. The aroma of this brew is very mild and almost non-existant. It is so faint I cannot describe it accurately. The mouthfeel is smooth with a slight "Brown" bber finish. The flavor is somewhat thin but good. It just needs more character. I can taste some sweet malt and and a hint os smoke but I need more than it has to give it higher numbers.

Deep amber color, thick off white head. Lots of caramel, buttery toffee, and malt in the aroma and flavor. Hints of smoke, quite sweet. Very smooth and easy to drink. Could drink quite a bit of it and not get bored.

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.

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

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.
