3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
I appreciate a holiday beer without all that "junk" in there. Reddish brown pour, thin head. Malty. Lots of caramel malt, some light cocoa like notes and some toffee. Subtle. Not sure where "scotch ale" comes from, but whatever. Not a lot of character, but a good malty ale.

Pours murky copper with a huge thick off white sticky head. Initial burst of sweet malt that fades quickly. A hint of bread at the finish.

Bottle, as pictured. Bottled October 2015. Not a bad beer, wasnít sure what style this was going to be. Reddish-brown pour, sweet, a little roastiness, light spice. Nothing wild.

Bottle. Pours a dark copper with a fluffy white head. Aromas of sweet malt, dark fruit and hops. Flavors of caramel, dark fruit, berries, cut grass, and bready tones. Finishes with earthy hops. Clean mouthfeel. Really a very nice Christmas ale. No cinnamon. No spices. Well done.

Not bad but not great either. Doesnít have any traits of a Christmas ale, such as spices. Meh.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
12oz bottle, poured into a stout glass. Appearance is amber, light brown and clear, with a thick khaki foam head and nice lacing. Aroma is caramel malt, touch of citrusy hops. Taste is toasty, slightly nutty malt flavor, and a moderately strong bitterness. Palate is medium body with high carbonation. Overall easy to drink, i liked it for the style. Not sure why others rate so poorly considering the brewery, but it does not rate that highly for the style.

Bottle. Amber color with an off-white head. Malt aroma of sweet caramel. Lack spices of most Christmas beers. Very drinkable.

Pours murky copper with a foamy light brown head. nose is quite gentle with just a few hints of sweetness and subdued hops. Flavor is similarly week and someone sweet without a whole lot of character in any direction. overall quite disappointing.

Beer was very neutral. Seemed more like a brown than a scotch ale. Not much to say here.
