Pours an amber/red color. Aroma is malty, some spices, caramel malt and some good fruitiness. Flavor has a touch of hops that melds well with the caramel, spices and bit of dark fruit. Good beer. Goes well with enchilada pie!

2.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
UPDATED: FEB 17, 2007 Bottle... Clear copper ale with a mid-sized, creamy, khaki head. The nose is malty, beefy and herbal. The flavor is beefy and kinda funky with earthy, peppery notes. Moderately sweet. Medium-bodied and oily with tingly carbonation. Bland, lightly bitter finish. Well, that was a bit of a disappointment.

Scores a touch low. A wee heavy this is not, but it warms up nicely to be a malty toffee and fruit forward Scottish ale. Very light smoke and hops. Finished sweet. Pleasant, if not too complex.

2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
300 mL. Pours a clear dark amber with almost no head and no lacing. No carbonation. Aroma is of a Scotch ale- Worcestershire sauce, soy sauce, caramel malt. Taste is watery and dry with some wood notes, faint caramel, slight dry hops. Finish is seltzer water. Disappointing.
