4.8 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 10/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 20/20
lucent amber, thin but lasting beige head, medium full body (kind of creamy but watery at the same time), medium co2.
aroma: very sweet malt, some bread, leafy hops, a hint of minerality.
taste: lots of toasted malt, wet stone minerality, pretzely malt, pleasantly bitter leafy hops, just a hint of acridity.
nice hop presence and balance for a scottish style ale. not cloying. quite quaffable.

Erie Brewing’s most recognized beer always offers a smooth, sweet taste. Clearly, a home-town favorite

Very smooth beer that should be drank from a glass. Very much enjoyed this beer. Not an overly complex beer, but a very solid beer.

Got on tap at Murphy’s Law in Rochester NY. Much better than what people are rating on here. A very drinkable beer that has soft undertones of sweet maltyness and a soft bite of hops as an aftertaste. Great tasting beer.

Don’t really understand how this beer could possibly get a bad rating. it is the perfect "gateway beer" into craft drinking. while it is not to over powering to turn some away, it gives the drinker a nice smooth way to enjoy some craft beer

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.

I have had better but this was nonetheless a good ale not really an old ale. Tastes of caramel and hops with a nice amber orange colour its enjoyable.

Great drinkable beer, full malt flavor with a kick. Has a nice amber color with a soft hop flavor. Finish is light but not watered down.

On tap at Brew Garden in Clearwater. I really liked this beer. The aroma is definately malty--close your eyes, and you’d think you were about to dig into a chocolate malt, not a beer. Light head. Nice mouthful--lighter and less sweet than the aroma would imply. If you like a sweeter, malty beer, this is a good one.

An excellent rendition of a Scottish ale, as judged (from the bottled version) by this expatriate Scot. Clearly this isn’t one of the most distinguished beers around, but it’s hard to find a better option as one’s regular pint -- interspersed, of course, with posher stuff other days.
