daknole (10848) - Scottsdale, Arizona, USA - APR 1, 2009
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!

hopscotch (10563) - Vero Beach, Florida, USA - NOV 23, 2006
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.

GT (9982) - Oceanside, California, USA - JAN 18, 2009
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.

slowrunner77 (9939) - Reno, Nevada, USA - DEC 25, 2014
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.

DocLock (9866) - Lower Pottsgrove, Pennsylvania, USA - JAN 29, 2007
Draft from DRE. Medium brown pour with aroma of caramelly malt, some brown sugar, nutmeg, hops. Tastes caramel malty coupled with slight brown sugar and X-mas spicy notes, and a twinge of finishing hops.

Bottle. Dark brown and red with a thin head. Aromas are weetabix and citrus with floral notes. Chocolate with some herbal notes. Flavours are sweet chocolate and weetabix malts with citrus and raisins. Quite plummy and fruity on the finish. A decent winter brew.

Bottle. Pours a clear amber with a small frothy with a small frothy white head that diminishes quickly to nothing. The aroma is a sweet fruit with bready malt. Medium mouthfeel with a sweet caramel with light malt and a nice spicy finish. Easy to drink, a great winter brew. FINALLY a scottish ale under my belt!!
