Pours a darkish brown with almost no head. Light aroma of caramel and smoke. Decent flavor, body seems a little watery however.

Tmoney99 (10468) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - OCT 19, 2007
Draft sample at Knoxville Brew Jam. Poured a brown color with an average frothy white head that mostly lasted with good lacing. Moderate toasted caramel malt aroma. Medium body. Medium balanced flavor with a medium bittersweet finish of moderate duration. Smooth flavorful brew, my expectations where met.

Sampled at Brewgrass 2007. Poured a mostly clear ruddy brown with a thin white head. Light caramel malt aroma with the faintest hint of some hops. Light bodied, low carbonation. The taste is mostly sweet malt, but little of that hop in the aroma was present in the taste. A decent Scottish.

Appearance: Pours a dark reddish-brown body with an off-white head. Smell: Sweet-smelling aroma with an expressive malty character and a fair amount of peatiness. Taste: Starts sweet with a bready, earthy dark caramel flavor. A subtle peat taste perks up midway and remains into the aftertaste. There are some hops in there, but they remain light and only provide a hint of bitterness. There’s simply no denying it, this beer finishes sweet. Mouthfeel: Medium-bodied. Medium carbonation. Slight stickiness. Drinkability: An enjoyable Scottish Ale. Yeah, I could go for another one right NOw, in fact. The only thing that marred the drinking experience was being stung by a bee!

clear blood red, frothy tan head, nice sweet carmel malt aroma blended with earthy hops, light body, good carmel malt flavor and nice earthy hops and smoke to balance but lacking the depth that you can’t get and be within the 6% limit, disappointing, touch of sweetness,

On draft at Barley’s in Knoxville, TN. Quite interesting. Dark color with minimal head. Faint aroma, with some malt and yeast in the background. Kind of a light taste. Caramel, malt, and some hops. Not the best Scotish Ale, but interesting to see one in Tennessee.

muenster (345) - Sevierville, Tennessee, USA - OCT 15, 2006
Draught at Knoxville Brewer’s Jam ’06. Apparently this beer is very unpredictable. The batch I had was very disappointing. Poured a dark ruby/amber color, with a medium sized beige head. Aroma is faint yeast, and light caramel. Flavor is an indecernable jumble of bread and flat hops, and malty sweetness.
