1.7 AROMA 2/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 7/20
Cloudy amber color. Aroma of red wine vinegar. Thin, almost non-existent head. Thin, sour taste - a bit citrusy.. Overall, just a very bland and truly forgettable beer.

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

2.3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 1/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 11/20
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.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
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.
