sample. It was a decent beer but not one of my favorites from them. I would choose something else first.

Tap. Previously I had only had this in bottle. Very nice, light red in color. Smooth taste. Very nice Scottish offering. My favorite pour of the evening.

Tap. Great beer, separate alcohol taste at times, but overall an extremely enjoyable beer. On the strong side and definitely easy to drink - so buyer beware. Great beer for the winter as well.

This is my favorite from this brewer. Really, i mean really. easy to drink, so much so it is dangerous. Nice balanced beer slightly malty with a light red/amber color. Good all year round.

SuperDave (1932) - Beautiful Sunny Mesa, Arizona, USA - DEC 6, 2006
UPDATED: NOV 2, 2008 This is my favorite local beer, especially to drink with food. Color varies from a clear light brown to a hazy medium red. Lots of brown sugar, caramel. malt and nuts.

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.

sunevdj (3499) - Copenhagen OE, DENMARK - NOV 3, 2006
Blind rating, American Beer Tastings at Sk8viking´s. Pours a clear hazy cobber. Sweet with notes of malts and honey. High carbonation. Light bodied. Alcohol in the finish with some dryness.

hopscotch (10130) - 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!

Storm (2684) - Amager, DENMARK - OCT 28, 2006
Amber unclear colour with a little fizzy head. Nice aroma of fresh fruit, yeast and apple. Light flavour of malt, alcohol and someway strange.
