This is an ale made in the tradition of the great strong ales of Scotland. Amber colored, malty sweet with underlying note of smokiness.

Rcvd in trade. Reviewed from notes. The appearance was a bronze yet slightly amber looking colored body with a one finger white foamy head that dies within a minute, lacing tries to cling to the glass but slides a bit, spider webs after a while. The smell had a rich sort of malty, peatiness with a slight tobacco edge. The taste was mainly sweet, slightly peaty aftertaste, smooth sweet finish. The palate was about a light to medium and somewhat sessionable. Carbonation is very subdued but still good for the style and for me. Overall, I say a pretty good Scottish Ale, good job Four Peaks, second brew by them and I’m becoming quite intrigued by them.

Pretty subtle and sweet malts. No hops. Not a lot of flavour, but I guess it would be session able. Pretty typical Scottish Ale. Nothing Special. Thanks JM for the sample.

Copper color. Sweet caramel malt on the nose. Big malt and caramel on the palate, without being overly sweet. Nicely balanced.

Malty, sweet, and slightly smokey. Amber color and smooth, though not particularly distinctive as a scotch ale.

I enjoyed this at the Phoenician Hotel in Scottsdale, Arizona during a recent work function. The beer was a distinctive scotch ale that was very drinkable. Overall the beer filled a nice gap from the ordinary mass produced beers on the market.

12oz can in a thistle. Pours deep amber/copper with a lacy, off-white head. Aroma of caramel and pale and slightly cereal-like malts plus light bitterness and bread. Flavor the same. Average texture. Not great.

Bottle. Muddy brown pour with a thin ring of lace. Aromas of light smoke, fruit, and pond water. Flavor is watery and mild. Smoke, caramel, and a mineral finish. Eh not too enjoyable and somewhat hard to put down.

Luvystypotables (607) - Virginia Beach, Virginia, USA - FEB 2, 2014
UPDATED: FEB 8, 2014 A great looking beer copper colored with a moderately thick creamy head. Almost no aroma just a hint of yeast. Pleasant taste but not very distinctive with a slightly watery mineral palate.

Unfiltered flavor? Slight resemblance to La Fin Du Monde after 4 of them... 6%? Most definitely. Citrus, smoke, caramel, burnt oatmeal, that’s what I got anyway. Would be pretty good with Grilled Tilapia or Orange Chicken. $8.99 for a 6 pack at Circle K in Tucson, brewed semi locally in Tempe, AZ... better than most offerings at your local gas station mini mart.
