Lite clean amber with notes of mild sweet malts in the aroma. Sweet malts and lite hops. Farily smooth entry with a bitter finish.

Bottle: Amber in color, somewhat darker, moderate foamy off-white head, fairly nice lacing, no noticeable carbonation.   Sweet malty nose, slight caramel and roasted malts, very minor smoke and peat.   Sweet caramel/butterscotch notes up front, malty, with a slight touch of peated malt on the backside.   Very subdued Scottish Ale.   Moderate body and mouthfeel.   Clean finish, a little buttery along with the caramel malts.   Not big, but clean, easy to drink, and quite enjoyable.   A very sessionable Scottish Ale.

this was a decent brew that i had at the pepper mad caddies show. Lots of thick malts, but really nothing special. I had an snpa the same night and i thought them to be much of the same.

Canadianlush (169) - Scottsdale, Arizona, USA - MAR 8, 2007
On Tap. Pours a dark amber color with a nice tan head. Sweet aroma gives way to a hoppy, malty flavor with hints of caramel. Pretty smooth finish makes for a very drinkable scotch ale. Itís simplicity is the only reason for the average score, Just seemed to lack a great deal of character.

CaptainCougar (7133) - Columbia, Maryland, USA - MAR 6, 2007
Bottle: Pours a clear effervescent copper amber with a large, airy, spotty-lacing light tan head. Aroma of lightly toasted caramel malt with a lot of fruity esters. Body foams up on contact, settling into a very under-developed sugar-watery flavor with only undertones of caramel malt and some earthy hops. I donít know what causes it, but it kinda reminds me of a cheaply made homebrew.

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.

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.
