06 State College Brew Expo. Pours a translucent golden amber with a foamy light tan head that left some lacing. Aroma was malty, caramel, some citrus and other fruits. Flavor was also the sweet malt, grains and light bitterness.

Bottle. Pours amber with a nice off white head. Aroma of bread, yeast, and british pale malts. A scottish ale type maltiness flavor with a thin texture. Finishes with a bitter herbal hoppiness. Tolerable and interesting. Glad I tried it

3.4 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
A clear, dark amber with a creamy, off-white head.It was smooth, nicely balanced, nicely flavored and left no aftertaste. It went down quickly and left sip lines on the glass. Good with food; it didn’t dominate the food, nor did the food dominate it. Refreshing, it called for another. Encore Uno!

Very hoppy beer poured from draught. This bottle was very bitter for me but drinkable. I would rate this as a good ale in any competition.

2.9 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottle (12oz). Poured clear brassy amber with a small creamy white head. Sort of nasty vegetal aroma - fghah. Taste is a sweet candyish light fruit standard ale, some odd OJ in there. Mouthfeel is watery, a littlle fizzy and grainy - the bottle may have heard of scotland, and there may actually be malt here, but it’s no scotch style anything, and completely forgettable.

2.8 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Bottle. Pours a clear amber with a small diminishing white head. Avereage aroma of grain, fruit and hops. Flavour’s slightly better and follows the aroma with a decent bitter finish. Alcohol’s well hidden. Medium bodied. Not bad, I enjoyed it, but it’s no ’Scottish Ale’.

3.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Pours a light amber pure copper color with almost no head. Aroma is lightly fruity herbal hops, tea leaves, light crystal malts. Flavor is pretty weak despite the 6.8% abv, light crystal malts, herbal and spicy hops are faint. Has a slightly harsh bite to it in the end that assaults the tongue- prickly. Not bad at all, but very one dimensional and weak overall.

2.7 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Pours a hazy orange with little head. Aroma is lagery and buttery, tobacco and light saaz. Very alcoholic in taste, unbalanced, high on the european hops and light on the malts. Vegetably and buttery in the taste.

2.4 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
Pours a deep clear amber with a thin white head. Aroma is cookieish, but only lightly, nothing much else. The body is wicked sweet and slickish.
The flavors are sweet malt but nothing too characteristic. Finishes cloyingly sweet. Time to pick a more attenuative yeast and use more quality crystal malts.
