COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
From the land of loch and stone comes our newest offering. Ruby-gold in color, Burning Skye is exceptionally smooth and mild. The use of a wee bit of smoked barley lends Scottish Ale a finish that is both unique and a little mysterious.

12oz bottle acquired in trade with valpoaj (thanks!). Poured a medium orange color with a very small sized head. Aromas of grains, light caramel, and very light peat/earthiness. Tastes of caramel, toasted grains, and maybe some fruitiness. Thinner and weaker in aromas, tastes and body.

This is a decent beer with a smallish head and decent scent. It has a complex flavor that is a little heavy on the smoke (take this as you will since I had a Third Stone just prior to this). It is not bad, but when compared to others from Empyrean, it falls off a little.

My 3rd favorite beer at Lazlo’s. Nice and malty and enough complexity to be enjoyable as your 1st or 4th beer of the night.

Not bad, but not nearly as good as the Third Stone Brown. The roasted grains really stand out, and there’s an OK bite of hops, but the taste is a little thin. It’s not bad, but I expected a little more flavor out of a Scottish style.

12 oz bottle from Iowahawkeye (thanks!). Wow this one has a massive head, but it disspates quickly leaving almost no lace.. and no head at all...weird. Pours semi-clear gold.Nose is spicey and a little fruity.Taste starts sweet, then quickly tirns tart and spicey...almost ginger-like. Also has some witbier undertones in the aftertaste. Carbonation is high...too high. Body is light/medium. Not crazy about this one....

LIghtly roasted cereal grains dominate the aromas on this beer, some caramel and an open, grassy smell. Palate is short, and dry. Maybe a little on the thin side. The flavor profile falls down on malts, though, with a straightforward hop presence. Not much substance.

valpoaj (634) - Valparaiso, Indiana, USA - DEC 7, 2006
Somewhat foul aroma upon pouring, with a quickly dissolving white head. Pours a nice copper color and has a subtle caramel flavor. Nothing overly impressive, but a pleasant simple drink. Have had both in bottle form and on tap where it is brewed in Lincoln, NE, and it is a substantially better beer on tap than bottled

jpm30 (1587) - East Central, Georgia, USA - OCT 6, 2006
From a 12 oz. twist cap stubby bottle with no freshness date. Poured a clear orangey copper with a foamy white that settled into a thin lacing. Aromas of a watery peat, a fruitiness that had a slight banana twinge and a sweet soft grainy maltiness. Start off fizzy, but moderate carbonation overall and softly crisp, thin and watery light bodied mouthfeel. Thin and watery tasting, sweet caramelized sugary maltiness, a very watery fruitiness, like when there is not enough powdery fruit mix to water ratio, something that I think wants to be a peat flavor and a watery malty finish. Because of taste and too thin a body for a Scottish Ale, the drinkability of this is not very high.

iowaherkeye (2692) - Ocean Beach, San Diego, California, USA - SEP 3, 2006
12oz, no date on the bottle, but the six pack said Best before 11/31/06. Pours a clear light orange with a quickly fading (~20 seconds) one finger eggshell head into absolutely nothing. Poured like a soda pop. The aroma isn’t terribly strong, but there is a slight tinge of smoke--but not the kind you get in Scottish style ales. There is a little grain, metal, and caramel malts. Not enticing. The flavor is an improvement with some caramel and very light chocolate, light smoke, toasty malts are a bit stronger, and into a clean finish. Low bitterness. Thin bodied, sharp low-moderate carbonation. This is sucky.
