Tmoney99 (10660) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - MAR 20, 2005
Bottle. Poured a reddish brown color with a medium tan head. Aroma was solid with tones of sweet and bitter malts. Flavor was complex with the malt and hops that lasted with strong finish. The third best brew from this house.

Lubiere (9999) - Ottawa, Ontario, CANADA - AUG 11, 2004
Light brown ale with a thin white head. Sweet hoppy aroma with pine.Sweet nutty malt with a nice hoppy end, with citrus notes halfway. Lighter bodied than expected.

hopscotch (9158) - Vero Beach, Florida, USA - MAR 12, 2004
Sparkling clear amber ale with orange highlights and a small, fizzy, off-white head. Nice malt aroma with notes of caramel, butterscotch and spruce. Well-balanced flavor with a malty, woodsy, piney flavor. Some butterscotch notes as well. Full-bodied with an oily mouthfeel and lively carbonation. Lengthy, bitter, dry finish. With all the hops, it's a good brew, but not really true to the style.

On tap. Light amber in color. Sweet smells with light hops. Sweet malty taste with light hoppy bitterness. Nothing special.

Dogbrick (8119) - Columbus, Ohio, USA - MAY 7, 2002
A lot more hops than I would have expected. I was looking to get a foamy malty Ale but that was not the case. Putting expectations aside, it was still a good beer.

3fourths (8020) - Boulder, Colorado, USA - JUN 29, 2004
A good solid scotch aroma with some brown ale like malts and some caramel malt smells as well. Light body, a bit of bitterness and a definite pine flavor of cascade hops, with a pretty light and somewhat empty finish.

Bottle. I am frequently disappointed with Scottish Ales since despite knowing better, I expect a Scotch Ale, and this was one of those cases. Orangey red body with a smallish off whitehead. Sort of funky yeast and malt aroma is muted. Ok palate, touch watery. Flavour is mediocre, some malt, but it has a funky note that reminds me a bit of things I found in the Grantís mandarin. A house characterisic perhaps?
