2.8 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Not a great, flavorful Scottish Ale. I wanted to like it, but with Founders Dirty Bastard and Three Floyd's Robert the Bruce as my pace setters, this just falls far behind.

Murky brown, loose white head. Smells earthy, with a nice whiff of caramel. Nicely full bodied. Nice mix of molasses and some earthy flavors. Dry, woody finish.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Draft @ Four Peaks. Clear light brown with a small, dense off white head. Aroma of toffee, fruity yeast esters, dough and very faint smoke. Flavor is very malty, lots of caramel and dark fruit, slightly sweet. Medium body with average carbonation. Good beer, really surprised this is their flagship beer.

2.3 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 9/20
Refrigerated 12 oz. aluminum can obtained from JStax as an extra, poured into a shaker. Pours nice clear amber with small off-white head that dissapates fairly quickly. Very little lacing, medium body, low carbonation, and corn aroma. Taste is caramel malt, metallic corn, and some nice hops. JStax hooking me up with an Arizona tick, thanks.

3.6 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
12oz bottle. Ruddy copper pour, big bubbly head fades to a nice collar, no lacing. I get mostly citrus and cereals in the aroma, very very good. Taste is good as well, sourish in the beginning, I get the smokiness in the end. Palate is medium bodied, erring towards light. I wouldn’t drink it all night. Definitely more carbonated than other scottish ales I’ve had.

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
12oz can, thanks to MikedR. Clear orange color. 1.5 finger thick khaki head, with good retention. Some bubbles on the side of the glass. Decent lace. Medium body. Smooth, lighter carbonation. Clean finish on the texture. Nice bit of smoked malt. Some chocolate malt. Light bitter, some sweet. Solid, tasty scotch ale. I enjoy the smokiness here.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
Poured from a 12 ounce can thanks to a generous trader. Pours a hazy and clumpy copper color with a bubbly head of foam that dissipates down to a soapy cap. The aroma is malty and has an interesting vanilla and candy cane thing going on. Taste is fairly malt forward with a nice earthy and nutty presence. Overall this beer is decent. It’s not gonna knock anybody’s socks off, but it isn’t bad at all. I could handle drinking a couple of these.

On tap at the Scottsdale brew pub. Comes a clear amber with a nice off-white head. Aroma of malt, caramel, and smoke. Taste is caramel malt, dark fruit, and smoke. Pleasant but not too exciting.

3.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
A little more roasted and smoky than I was expecting, but after a couple sips, it goes down like a session (which is shouldn’t be). Has a lingering nuttiness on the palate, is slightly watery with a deep amber color and thick, quickly disappearing head. Stephan brought this one back with him from AZ in 2013.
