BückDich (5464) - McCall, Idaho, USA - DEC 4, 2006
Bottle: Pours a pellucid amber color with light tan head and a bit of lacing. The nose is nice and malty, lots of nutty crystal malt notes along with a light balanced hop essence. The flavor is a rich and malty/nutty experience with a full bodied finish. Seems very malty and smooth. Nutty. Good. I like a good balanced, straight (and malt) forward scottish. Maybe a bit lacking in the smokiness and earthy qualities, but it’s simple, and simple is good (sometimes).

Smells pretty good and looks okay. This is a pretty nice Scottish ale for me. My buddy, beerlist, had some chunks in his, but not mine. Malty, but with a smooth light finish.

hopscotch (9962) - Vero Beach, Florida, USA - OCT 29, 2006
Bottle... Clear, light brown ale (no orange or red tint to mine) with a small, creamy, off-white head. Earthy, herbal aroma with a rumor of mint. Subdued toffee and biscuit flavors. Good balanced… leans just a touch on the sweet side. Medium-bodied with a milky mouthfeel and lively carbonation. Thin, watery finish. A big THANKS extended to FlacoAlto for shipping this one to me!
