3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
12 ounce bottle. Deep amber brown and opaque. A beige head leaves rich lacing. The aroma is of a Scottish ale and is rich to the nose. The flavor is also authentic and classic. A sweet maltiness. Sweet toffee and a dry bitterness seems to be an Americanization. Some fruit and a little floral, too. Toast and bread, almost fruit cake.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
The beer pours brown with a beige head. The aroma has toffee, brown sugar, toast, candy and smoothness. It has a medium body with fairly soft carbonation. The taste mirrors the aims pretty much and is pretty decent.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Draft at source. Light smokey and stable flavors toffee and faint roast. Taste follows but overall seems to lack the malt complexity and mouthfeel of a Scottish export. A touch thin.

3.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottle. Butterscotch toffee malt and light straw aroma. Hazy dark brown with small head. Mildly sweet lactic toffee malt and mildly bitter dry hay flavor - not nearly as sweet as the aroma would seem to indicate. Body a bit light.

2.7 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
A fairly decent scotch ale. I've had better, and I've had worse. The malt bill could be better.

2.6 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 11/20
Pours a dark amber brown color with a short lived off white head. Caramel, toffee, peat, toast, raisin and sweet malt aroma. Sweet malt, toffee, caramel and raisin flavors. Medium body and moderate carbonation. Sweet malt finish. Something about this beer just seems kind of off and artificial.
