Orange-amber pour. Aroma is caramel and fruit. A little bitter, too much sweet. Boring.

This is an ok, pretty alcoholic scotch ale. Malty with a decent balance and mild hops. Tried at the Drink the District President’s Day event in DC in 2014.

12 Fl. Oz. Bottle. Poured Clear, dark amber, decent size head and lots of lacing on the glass. Aroma of fruit, barley, malts and caramel or toffee. Taste is sweet, malty with a slight bitterness; Alcohol is hardly noticeable. Quite smooth, not your usual scotch ale, not great but not bad.

Decent copper pour with a white head that leaves a bit of lacing. The aroma is quire bland and certainly lacking for a scotch. The taste is equally as dull and disappointing. There are some nice sweet caramel notes up front but the flavor falls flat in the finish. The watery finish really brings this brew down. I’m a pretty big scotch fan but I’m reluctant to even remotely be a fan of this.

Beer of thr month club twist off bottle. Pours deep amber with small white head. Smells like a cheap sweet amber ale. Flavor is sweet brown sugar with a bit of fruit and a dirty finish. Finished a bit better as I go through it. Medium light mouthfeel. Easy going for 8%. Not a terrible beer, but not getting much scotch ale from this. Taste is similar to a Killians with more body.

Very light fruit, barley. Dark but clear reddish brown color. A touch of woodyness. Light carbonation. Very tame for a scotch ale. Not bad.

12oz bottle via beer of the month. Light brown. Malty, caramel aroma. Very simple, caramel malt base with slight bitterness. Just a hint of alcohol. Light-bodied. Barely qualifies as a scotch ale.

Draft at Ram’s Head in Annapolis. Rich peaty malts with a mild roasty hop character afterwards. Good sipper on a cold winter night.
