Not a bad scottish ale. Nicely done smooth finish but nothing over the top to give this a glowing recommendation. I will try this one again. I don’t think my rating will change.

Fun to have again...since we had a keg at our wedding many years ago. Decent simple Scottish. Amber colored. Caramel and roasted malt forward. A little sweet and thin, but drinkable.

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.

2.1 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
On tap at brewery, poured a lightly hazed deep copper hue w/ a medium quickly diminishing beige head and broken lacing. Medium malty aroma. Initial flavor is moderate sweet w/ a moderate bitter finish of short duration. Tastes are sweet tea, lemon, rye and grass. Medium bodied, watery mouthfeel and a light doughy 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.
