From beer novice to beer geek, everyone loves this beer! This is what Scottish ale is supposed to taste like. The Scottish traditionally do not use a lot of hops in their beers. This is a carmel/malty beer with a slightly nutty roasty component. Amber in color. OG=1.058 / FG=1.020 / 20-IBU’s / 5% alcohol

Can. Pours a hazy brownish color with a moderate off-white head on there. Nose has some bread and caramel to it, and seems just overly malty. Taste is a bit sweet and definitely bready. Way too malty for my palate.

Tallboy can shared at a tasting. Pours a slightly hazy amber with a thin creamy off-white head. Aroma of caramel malt, toasted malt, mild vegetal notes. The taste is toffee, citrus, dark fruits. Medium bodied, mild lingering fruitiness.

"Don’t agree with the low scores. I tend to gravitate more towards the wee heavy strength scotch ales. While I like the lower abv ones, they’re just not as good 9 times out of 10. While i can’t speak to Fearless’ Wee Heavy, i can say this was a solid and quite enjoyable brew that was better significantly than their IIPA. Caramel, toffee, light peat and slightly fruity. Smooth and drinkable, yet complex and pretty tasty."

Gerbeer (2162) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - SEP 1, 2014
473 ml can. Pours a dark amber with full head. Aromas of sweet malts and toffee. Flavors of cereal, nuts, toasted malts and a bit of cardboard. Odd flavor for the aroma and somewhat flat.

chinchill (2552) - South Carolina, USA - JUL 21, 2014
16 oz can purchased and consumed in Oregon. Poured deep amber; clear. Feel: Medium body and carbonation. Mildly bitter -- a bit high for style -- and gets to moderate in aftertaste. No smoke but perhaps a faint touch of peat. O: Light and hoppy for style. A very Americanized Scottish Ale.

473ml can, 5.3% abv on can. Orange pour with medium clarity. Creamy low sitting whitish cap up top. Wide, thick bands of lace in the glass. Nose is mild with caramel and grains. Taste has caramel, raisin, some nut and grain/light toasted malt. Creamy texture, pleasant mouthfeel and flow. Overall an enjoyable ale, soft and mild, I could easily drink a few pints of this in the right setting.

473 ml can. Clear medium copper, fine off-white foam. Malty butterscotch aroma. Sweet caramel/toffee malt taste and not much else. Softer than average carbonation, medium bodied, low hopped. Just okay. LBW (Lagerboys Be Wary)
