COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
A collaboration between the brewers at BJís and the historic Caledonian Brewery in Scotland. This one-of-a-kind brew perfectly balances the rich flavors of Scottish malts and yeast with American hops.

kramer (5034) - Sunbury, Pennsylvania, USA - SEP 19, 2014
Clear light copper body under a small frothy beige head. The nose is sweet toasty malt with some nice light floral hops. The flavor is a bit thin, but it seems to allow the hops to shine a bit. Light bitter and floral with a slight citrus note on the finish. Light bodied and thin with fizzy carbonation. This wasnít necessarily a great beer, but it was clean and drinkable.

Reddish brow pour, cream colored head. Interesting mix of sweet caramel makes, citrusy hops, light peat, yeast. Easy drinker.

On tap - light brown, has a slight floral aroma. Has a biscuit malt taste. Medium dry. Not spectacular but not bad either.

sloshgator (441) - Orlando, Florida, USA - JUL 7, 2014
BJís Hoppy Scotsman is decent but not the best in category. Moderate aroma on the back end. Pour is translucent brown with a nice head. Taste is a nice balance between hop and malt with bit of a malt aftertaste. Hoppy Scotsman is mellow version of the style that will pair well with food.

DYCSoccer17 (3330) - Woodland, California, USA - JUL 6, 2014
16oz sample from Natomas, CA BJs. Light peated nuttiness in the aroma. A little sweet. Hazy amber body with a small, off-yellow head present. Starts with a nutty, sweet, chewy maltiness. Lots of caramel and toffee present in this.Light roastiness late. Some coffee, too. This is quite flavorable, and better than expected.

kathouse (1040) - Nevada, USA - JUL 3, 2014
BJís at Superstition in Mesa. Pours brown with copper highlights. A thick head. Toffee, toast, and a slight smoke aroma. Full flavors went towards sweeter caramel and toasted malts. Not quite fruity, but leaning towards it. Hops donít balance it much. Pleasant to drink, but not a shining example of the style. Yet again, Iíd drink another.

jkwalking05 (3826) - Arlington, Texas, USA - JUN 19, 2014
On tap at BJs in Arlington, TX. Deep amber with a decent off-white head. Aroma is of heavy malt, caramel, light smoke, herbs. Taste is of malt, dough, tree bark, herbs, and an average hop bitterness.
