RSRIZZO (1853) - Colorado Springs, Colorado, USA - DEC 2, 2007
Had this beer on 6/2/1999. This is, from what Iíve read in Bert Grants book, the flagship of Yakima Brewing and Berts favorite beer that he brews. Color is a bright golden brown with good carbonation and a light head. Aroma is a sweet malt scent back buy a good hop fragrance. Taste is very hoppy and nicely bitter. It starts with a nice medium body and a bubbly feel. As it goes down crisp with a sweet malt flavor coming out. The finish is one of the most wonderful things Iíve had in awhile, stating with a perfectly balanced hop and malt flavor that is accompanied by a nice but strong bitterness. Overall this is the best Scottish Ale and one of the best beers Iíve ever had, its just excellent.

HopDuvel99 (39) - Tennessee, USA - JUL 3, 2007
Orangish amber with an offwhite head. Malty/alcohol aroma. Medium-bodied with a lightly foamy mouthfeel. Lots of malt with low-level hops for balance. Slightly sweet, lingering hoppy aftertaste. Pleasant and delicious. Very quaffable.

mlist55 (210) - media, Pennsylvania, USA - MAY 24, 2007
Amber/dark gold with a strong fluffy off-white head. A beautiful beer in the glass. Really good toasted malty aroma. Flavor has a great smoothness to its bittering hops, as though Old Bert may have engaged in exclusive late hopping. Caramel and nuttiness, but not citrusy. This is thick and mellow.

jetzler (622) - oklahoma city, Oklahoma, USA - MAY 1, 2007
Bottle, small quickly dissapaiting head. Mild to medium malt aromas, almost no hop prescence. A bit metallic in taste, its ok really nothing special. As an amber ale its ok but seriously lacking in scottish ales flavors. Nothing special at all but then again its old and retired.

coldbrewky (1423) - Hippetown East, New York, USA - DEC 28, 2006
found a 6er in the back of the shelf at the local beer store last week. Hoppier than I expected for a scotch ale. Prob a contributing factor to its retirement. Nice amber/copper pour. Flatish head that dissipates quickly, crisp abrupt finish. Next.

DrinkMoreBeer (21) - Seattle, Washington, USA - NOV 23, 2006
Bottle - tried this one a year ago - 9/7/05. Nice, but rather bitter at first, without other qualities. Probably was too cold (maybe 40-45F). Sweet malt flavor came out as it warmed. Bitterness was obvious up front but faded in the aftertaste. No hop aroma though (fittingly for a Scottich Ale).

kramer (4939) - Sunbury, Pennsylvania, USA - SEP 9, 2006
12 oz bottle. Pours a clear copper body under a fizzy one finger white head that faded to a thin film quickly. Aroma is all malt with some toasted and toffee notes. A little bit of oxidation creeping in. Flavor is malt dominated as well, but not a whole lot interesting going on. Mouthfeel is light to medium bodied with a moderate level of fizzy carbonation. Overall, this was drinkable but extremely uninspiring.
