3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
12 oz. bottle. Pours a pleasant light tan head, over a clear body.....nose primarily light malts....tastes almost entirely of malt layers, with a bit of bitter towards the finish, pleasant, not really sweet, not complex, mouthfeel light to medium. Lack of complexity in the malt back bone is its weakness.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Had a growler of this when I went to Colorado Springs to visit one of my best friends the spring of 03. Surprised to find it this lowly rated as I enjoyed it immensely when I was out there. Of course I was stoned out of my gourd the whole time...

2.6 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Clear brown amber with some decent head. Smell is super light dough. Flavor is strange funky sweet that isn’t very appetizing. Low to medium carbonation. Not great. Not horrid.

2.4 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
Draft at Falling Rock. Huge foamy tan head, body is the color of dark purple/brown and mostly clear with red light at the bottom. Carbonation is far too high, and the body on this beer is far too weak. Has a distinct note of diacetyl, some mild, buttery scotch and some pale and pallid herbal spices. Vegetal at times, very pale and bland with a thin texture. Disappointing.

4.3 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 17/20
This comes out of the tap a rich mahogany brown with a fine-bubbled head. Aroma is strong, spicy, malty, with a hint of hops. Flavor is rich and smooth, with hints of hops, caramel, smoke and cloves; the sweet nicely balances the hop bitterness. It goes down lively and sassy.

2.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Pours a clear maroon color with a light beige head. Smell is malty, perhaps tart and caramelly. Taste is smooth, malty, lightly creamy and faintly peaty. Creamy, soft body with light carbonation. Decent for the style, but I donít typically care much for it.

3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Pours a deep ruby amber color with a shallow froth that recedes to a thin ring of lace. Aromas of fresh baked French toast. Medium nectar with good carbonation. Defined baked bread malts hit the spot after a deluge of day old hot wings after a long night at the shop. Like it says itís not too rich. I would say the commercial description is honest enough and Iíll leave it at that. Nutty, mildly roasted malt backbone that is not sweet at all. Goes great with these wings. The finish is bittered nicely. A very good specimen.

Had on tap at Old Chicago. Aroma is a faint malt scent. Color is a deep brownish amber with low carbonation and a thin tight head. Its a roasted malt flavor that is a bit caramel like this is followed by a low bitterness and faint hop flavor. Its a clean easy drinking Scottish Ale.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Swet malty aroma, very caramelly. Auburn chestnut in color with a quickly disappearing off-white head. Slightly nutty flavor, not overly sweet or sticky, just some nicely toasted caramel. Fairly thin, but this isnít supposed to be huge. Enjoyable.
