COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Named after an antagonist movie character with a violent temper and a propensity for drooling, furthermore brewed amongst mad-ish Scottish dogs. Nevertheless is this beer far from mad itself. You’ll find it a very pleasant, peaceful and a loyal Pale Ale – woof.

ChainGangGuy (4422) - Marietta, Georgia, USA - OCT 24, 2012
11.2 ounce bottle - $4.99 at Total Wine & More in Kennesaw, Georgia.

Appearance: Pours a hazed, deep copper body with a couple inches of faintly yellowed suds. Little smattering of lace.

Smell: Biscuit tops, slight honeyish, toffee vibe but no promising sweet-scented accents to it. Mild citrus, spice, and woodsy hop notes.

Taste: Mild-toned biscuits with a thin veneer of honey and little incorporated sweetness. Bitter orange peel, slight spiciness, and a faint woodsiness to it. Moderate bitterness. Slight citric quality alongside the bitterness in the light finish.

Mouthfeel: Medium-light. Medium carbonation.

Overall: Acceptable, fair, so-so -- all adjectives you don’t want coming from a five dollar pale ale.

bhensonb (11523) - Woodland, California, USA - OCT 22, 2012
Bottle from Wine & Cheese in Clayton, MO. Pours light copper with a foamy near-white head. Aroma of floral over mild caramel. Med body. Flavor is refreshing floral, light caramel, and something lightly herby. It’s a good beer, but a tad expensive. Finishes mildly bitter.

Tmoney99 (11075) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - OCT 16, 2012
Bottle. Poured deep copper color with a large frothy off-white head that was mostly lasting with great lacing. Moderate smooth complex hop aroma. Medium body with a slick texture and soft carbonation. Moderate balanced bittersweet flavor with a smooth bittersweet finish of average duration. Solid drinkable brew.

NikkTwist (1745) - Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, USA - OCT 3, 2012
Draft at Monks. Slightly hazy copper pour with just some wandering foam for a head. Very juicy and very dry. Red plums. Elephant ear mushrooms. Caramel sweetness in the middle but a big floral hop bite to finish. Full and crisp for a nondescript Pale Ale. Hopped up quite a bit. Very nicely blended.

oh6gdx (20902) - Vasa, FINLAND - SEP 28, 2012
Bottled (thanks Kimi!). Amber colour, small white head. Aroma is brutal grass and floral notes. Flavour is grassy, bready, quite dry earthyness. Too hoppy for an APA, too little alcohol for IPA. Yet a very good beer for hopheads (which I am not, sadly).

Body is medium with a soft, creamy carbonation. Ends with more floral hops, toffee, citrus notes, light pine, tea and light spicy hops.
