COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
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

Draft: Pours a red amber color with a very thin white head. Aroma of carmel malts. Flavor is of really smooth carmel malts and subtle light fruitiness and a little fresh hop and slight bitterness at the end. Mostly a good example of an amber ale but its really a scottish. Good, but one note.

Another beer that is not overpowering, dry and malty with some light fruitiness, and a big caramel flavor, with some toffee lignering in there as well. A great bittersweet finish.

This one was a nice surprise. Much more malty than any other elements, though there are some nice caramel touches. Aroma is dry roasted with the caramel overtones. Has a nice dark body to it, with a big head on it that leaves some nice lacing. Flavor is more malts, with the caramel coming in to give it a sweet finish. Mouthfeel is a little overly carbonated, but nothing serious. One I tried at OBF on a lark, but nice.

Tis beer was missing the essential Sctoch ale part of the beerr, there was not strong hint of hops and a stronger hint of malt. The beer was good and drinkable but I felt missed the Scotch tones needed. I am hoping this was just a bad batch. I will try again. They are a good place to have a beer and some great food.

Copper color. Aroma is malty and caramel. A medium bodied Scottish ale. Malts are caramel, fruity and sweet. Hops are slightly bitter. Fruity and sweet. A lighter bodied and tasting Scottish ale. Mouthfeel is full. Finish is smooth. Aftertaste is slightly sweet.

BückDich (5464) - McCall, Idaho, USA - JUL 9, 2004
Auburn brown color with a light cloudy head & oily lacing. The aroma has lots of caramel malts and a very distant diacetyl component. The flavor is very balanced with a large complex malt body & only a faint distant bitterness, almost citrusy in the mouthfeel. Finishes a little toasty and good.
