2.6 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
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.

Deep copper/amber pour with creamy off white head and lace. Aroma of caramel and roasty malt along with a good bitter. Medium body with smooth carbonation. Pretty good beer.

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.

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.

2.5 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
Clear and deep amber-red with intricate, lasting lace. Smooth carbonation was nice, but weight was kind of thin. Sweet notes of caramel, toffee, toast and a hint of sour milk. Bitterness was mild. Had a slight alcohol edge. Not too bad, but it didn’t seem to have a lot of personality.

3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
dark copper brown pour with a thin off white head.
it smells a bit sweet... toffee, malt and strawberries.
the palate is a bit sugary but surprisingly good... caramel malty, toffee, biscuit, grassy, earthy hops and a dry alcoholic finish... the abv% is not unpleasant, it is just noticeable and thinning. .
the medium body is crisp and soft due to ample carbonation. 5/3/7/3/12/3.0

On draught. Tasted during trip to California. Reddish dark amber colour with a nice head. Sweet nutty aroma. Great taste of roasted malt, little nutty taste. But overall very tastful and well- balance.
