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.

adnielsen (9479) - Fort Collins, Colorado, USA - SEP 30, 2012
Tap @ Empyrean. Pours a hazy golden appearance with an off white head. Toasted malty, light caramel, herbal, pretty boring aroma. A bit tangy, toasty, grainy, grassy, light toffee, boring flavor.

hopdog (9189) - Lansdale, Pennsylvania, USA - DEC 3, 2007
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.

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. Something’s just not quite right with this.

BVery (6984) - Burnsville, Minnesota, USA - FEB 19, 2012
Bottle. Semi hazy orange pour with a nice small fluffy white head. Mild aroma and taste of apple/citrus, and not much for bready/malty/caramel at all. More like a weak cider.

Cletus (6354) - Connecticut, USA - JUN 26, 2009
Pours copper with a thin off white head. Smells of caramel, molasses, diacetyl. Tastes buttery and sweet with a vegetal finish.

5000 (6299) - Hardened Liver, Washington, USA - NOV 29, 2011
Bottle:   Amber, slightly cloudy, thin sudsy sandy head, little lacing.   Malty nose, very soft fruitiness.   There may be a small smidgen of ash and charred wood, but oh boy is it minor.   Not peaty at all.   Seems like an Amber or Brown, both broken.   Minor fruity tootsie roll like malt sweetness up front.   Its also like a damn popsicle stick on the finish.   Hard to tell if its the purple, red, or orange that you have been sucking on... but I am leaning towards purple (grape).   What about this is Scottish I havent the faintest.   Really off-kilter, and forgetable.   Thanks for the bottle Trevor.

Braudog (5903) - Traveling the USA, Missouri, USA - OCT 10, 2004
Poured a pure amber color. The head is sticky with average sustainment. The aroma is woodsy. On the first swallow, it’s peaty and roasty. It becomes more caramel than anything as the drinking goes ... bit thin. Not what I’d call a "Scottish", but a decent enough mild ale.
