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.

Amber color, no head at all. Hops on the nose with a hint of citrus. Not much flavor, watered down hops with citrus. This drink needs some work.

Liked the label, but it really was pretty much a malt and caramel bomb. For the birds, Scottish as they may be

12 Fl. Oz. Bottle. Poured reddish brown, semi cloudy, small off white head, no lacing. Aroma of ripe fruit, malts and some spices. Taste is tart, some fruit, some malts and some bitter hops. Not sure about this, don’t care for it too much.

HuskerTan (1582) - Kearney, Nebraska, USA - APR 30, 2015
Bottle. A- Subway bread, doughy, malty, subtle caramel, peat. A- Amber orange color, clear liquid, off white head. T- Subway bread, malty, peat. P- Medium body, average texture, average carbonation, bready finish. O- Tastes and smells like a liquid version of Subway’s wheat bread. Just odd. I’m really debating on whether I hated this or just thought it was alright. Either way I didn’t love it, but if you like liquid bread this may be a solid choice for ya.

Ratman197 (13076) - Arvada, Colorado, USA - APR 30, 2015
Bottle poured a clear golden amber with a small lasting ivory head. Aromas of caramel, earthiness and light toasted malt. Palate was light to medium bodied and smooth. Flavors of caramel, toasted malt and light earthiness with a smooth lingering caramel finish.

HIGHB4LL (837) - Fort Collins, Colorado, USA - FEB 28, 2015
12 oz. bottle form Wilbur’s. Appearance: finger white head, orange straw color, cloury, poor lacing. Aroma: bandaid aroma that dissipates as the beer aerates, fruity, light caramel. Palate: light body, average to soft carboantion, oily texture. Taste: sweet caramel and off notes of plastic, into fruity middle that lingers on the palate. Taste improves as it warms up a bid. Overall, much better after sitting in a glass for a bit, actually becomes pretty enjoyable. Not so much right out of the bottle or even right after being poured.

Light in color, light In flavor. This is supposed to be a Scottish ale? There is the faintest whiff of a Scottish ale here, but it's so muted as to be unnecessary. Bland, boring, and bad. Avoid.

UPDATED: AUG 14, 2015 As a Scottish Ale, Burning Skye isn’t the best representation of the style. It doesn’t effectively capture the rich, malty flavor that is associated with the Scottish tradition. However, as a beer, Burning Skye is successful in my book. I find its slightly smoky taste to be quite pleasant and the malt profile to be smooth if not complex. Perhaps not the best beer by itself, but something that would be right at home with a meal.
