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, 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 isnít 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.

Found this on tap in Omaha. Amber with tons of carbonation. Damn near none existent nose. Once it warmed a bit, there was lots of malt flavor, at least I think there was. Way to much carbonation. It was like champagne. Really not good.

hayduke (3468) - Eureka, California, USA - AUG 10, 2006
On tap at Lazlos in Lincoln, Nebraska. Poured an amber color with medium head that was gone quickly. Nopse of light malts and a hint of smoke. Flavor shows some hops. Good finish.

On tap at Buzzard Billyís Lincoln, Ne. Pours a one finger white head that fades quickly no lace. Clear amber color. Light carbonation and medium bodied. Sweet smokey nose. Starts sweet, clean finish, malt comes through late, hops in background. $3.75 for a 16oz glass.

goldtwins (4320) - Nesconset, New York, USA - JUN 25, 2006
Poured a clear amber color with a minimal head. Fruity estery aroma. Sweet and sugary, malty with light apples. Light alcohol fumes. Bland malt that becomes bitter rather quickly. Dull mouthfeel.

CaptainCougar (7132) - Columbia, Maryland, USA - JUN 24, 2006
Pours clear copper bronze with a thin, wispy white head. Vegetal earthy, grainy aroma has some bean sprout character. Body has a dull, dry palate with some cardboardy off-flavors and grass. Somethingís just not quite right with this.

ryan (3186) - Beltsville, Maryland, USA - JUN 17, 2006
Pours a clear light amber with a small, creamy, off-white head. The aroma is light floral hops and vegital malt, some diacetyl. The flavor is very light, some pear juice, herbal. Thin, watery body with a slightly astingent finish. This stuff is pretty bad.

On tap it isnít bad. Not my favorite, even of this type, but not offensive. This is a little on the sweet side for the type, a little shy rather than bold, flavor is not very robust.Light golden orange.

kramer (5094) - Sunbury, Pennsylvania, USA - MAY 15, 2006
12 oz bottle, via BA swid. Pours a dark gold with a thin and quick disappearing head, off-white in color. The lightest in color Scottish Ale Iíve ever seen. Aroma is of diacetyl butteriness, and thatís about all I get, with an accent of garbage juice to boot. Flavor has a little toasted malt beyond the butter flavor. This stuff is not good. Mouthfeel is thin and watery with moderate fine carbonation. Wow, this one surprised me. Their other beers that Iíve had were OK, but this is just awful. I got down about two ounces, and the rest met the drain.

Bottle from eboats Thanks!

Pours a decent light amber with an aroma of cantaloupe malt. Slight peach as well. Little head, no cling in the lace. Flavor is a hybrid honey mixture, with bits of cotton candy. Not bad.
