2.2 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 8/20
Heavy malt body that doesn’t meet expectations. Can taste the roasted malts. Deep red color has no head or aroma to speak of. It’s simply boring.

2.9 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Pours a clear amber golden with a white ring around the top edge. Some light caramel and sorghum on the nose (literally on my nose--stuck it in the glass a little too far). Smooth, full texture. The caramel and sorghum noted in the aroma comes through in the flavor with a dimensional quality. A bit of horehound candy there toward the finish.

2.7 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Pours deep red/gold with a thick head that laces down the glass.
Malty English ale aromas
Flavor is malty sweetness with unexpected biscuit caramel nutty malts and earthy english(?) hops
Comes across much more dry and complex than other Scottish ales with more hop flavor and bitterness than the style dictates. This is more of a robust red ale than a Scottish.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
12 oz bottle from Tipsy’s into my Funkwerks glass. Brown and lightly hazy with a small, off-white head. Sweet aroma of toasted malts, caramel, toffee, nuts, bread and light hops. Medium sweetness and very light bitterness. Light to medium body with a soft, creamy feel and a smooth, lingering finish.
