2.7 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Pours a deep amber orange with thick off-white head. Aroma pretty mild, but mostly of malt and sweetness. Flavor matches with the addition of dried fruits. Pretty bland in the world of old ales and way too much malt in this without the bite.

2.2 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 8/20
No bottling date.
Glass: Forgotten Boardwalk tulip.
Appearance: Clear amber with a tall light tan head. Never seen a Scottish ale of this ABV this light in color.
Aroma: Light malts light caramel, nuttiness and toasty malts, artificial smelling.
Taste: Caramel sweetness overwhelming. Artificial.
Palate: Medium bodied moderately carbonated.
Overall: This brewery sucks dick. Artificial flavors aplenty, accompanied by a lighter than normal SRM due to cheap malts. This brewery sucks. Stop brewing beer.

3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
12 ounce bottle into snifter, no bottle dating. Pours lightly hazy/cloudy deep orange/copper color with a 1 finger dense light khaki head with good retention, that reduces to a small cap that lingers. Light spotty soapy lacing clings around the glass, with a good amount of streaming carbonation retaining the head. Aromas of raisin, plum, apple, caramel, toffee, toast, biscuit, brown sugar, nuttiness, light smoke, herbal, and yeast/toasted earthiness. Nice aromas with good complexity and solid balance of fruity/earthy yeast and dark/bready malt notes; with good strength. A bit too fruity in the nose. Taste of caramel, toffee, toast, biscuit, brown sugar, plum, apple, light nuttiness, light smoke, light herbal, and yeast/toasted earthiness. Minimal earthy herbal bitterness on the finish; with lingering notes of caramel, toffee, toast, biscuit, brown sugar, plum, apple, light nuttiness/smoke, and yeast/toasted earthiness on the finish for a good bit. Very nice complexity, robustness, and balance of dark/bready malt and light-moderate fruity/earthy yeast flavors; with zero cloying flavors present after the finish. Light-medium carbonation and medium bodied; with a very smooth, moderately creamy, and lightly bready mouthfeel that is nice. Alcohol is very well hidden with minimal warming present after the finish. Overall this is a very nice Scottish ale style. All around good robustness, balance, and complexity of dark/bready malt and light-moderate fruity/earthy yeast flavors; and very smooth to drink. A very enjoyable offering.

2.6 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 11/20
Poured a caramel amber color with aromas of caramel, malt, light cherry. Flavors match the aromas a little of sour notes and acidic. Not to sure about this one meh.

1.8 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 7/20
Notes of chocolate and toast on the nose. Appearance is a dark copper with a very small off white head. Flavor doesn't have much malt character. The beer tastes oxidized and it lacks complexity. Mouthfeel is light and has very little carbonation. Overall, it's very poorly made and handled.

2.6 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 9/20
Pours clear copper, with almost no head. Smells malty and a tad sour. Taste is mildly roasty malts, and just sweet. Considering the other beers I’ve had from here, this wasn’t that bad.
Had from a bottle.

bottled - cool label. The beer was ok but not great. Had a bit of an odd flavor that I couldn’t place - possibly just the beer style (I’m not a big fan) or maybe just an old bottle.
