Silphium (3188) - East Lansing, Michigan, USA - JAN 10, 2007
Bottle from shigadeyo. Deep clear red body, thick puffy buff head. Aroma of toast and butterscotchy caramels. Thin, tart and sweet toasty, caramely, nutty malts punctuated by butterscotch and light grassy hops. Seems a bit stale and cardboardy. Too thin to carry the acidity.

Naven (1000) - Poway, California, USA - JAN 4, 2007
12 oz bottle: Yawn. Smell is a faint malty, somewhat hoppy aroma. Color is a very nice looking amber color. Flavor is pretty weak -- very watery, not much going on here. Pretty boring.

zsb19 (168) - Cincinnati, Kentucky, USA - JAN 3, 2007
Bottle (12 oz.) - Pours thick dark amber with foamy off-white head with a good amount of lacing. Aroma is sweet malts and caramel. Palate is a medium to thin, very smooth with a touch of carbonation. Upfront taste is caramel and malt sweetness. Follow through is more of the same with a hint of nuttiness. Aftertaste brings out a nice touch of piney hops. Overall, a very good Scottish Ale. Very sweet and malty throughout and perfect for a cold winter day.

jgb9348 (5062) - Arlington (Pentagon City), Virginia, USA - DEC 26, 2006
Nice deep amber coloured body with a caramel bottom and a thinnish off-white head. Aroma of alcohol, cherries, malt, caramel and toffee - pretty nice. Medium to Full-bodied; Strong malty flavour with toffee and nuts up front with a bit of a fruity character behind and a light sweetness tailing off the beer. Aftertaste shows some sweetness - but mostly covered up by nuts. Overall, a decent malty ale - a bit too nutty and sweet for a scottish. I sampled this twelve ounce bottle purchased at Oliver’s Beverage in Albany, New York on 26 December 2006.
