I was really confused by this and the Scottish at the brewpub, but I'm now convinced that they had the taps reversed. I had already tasted the Scottish at a local beer fest and my notes for it more closely match the beer served to us as this). What they served to us as the Scottish has to be their Irish ale ... dark maroon with a cream-stout-like big white milky head. There's a smooth milky texture to go along with it. Sweet and malty. An OK beer. But the bartenders either have the beers confused, or they've made two beers coincidently completely out of style.

Draft at the brewpub. Reddish pour, with an off-white head. Caramel, sweet malt, and light fruit notes. Pretty light and boring, I am not an Irish ale fan.

Can’t say that I see why this one a gold medal at some tournament lately, but then again, it’s a pretty decent Irish ale. Too much malt, like most of them, but okay.
