Pours a clear ruby with orange tendencies. Ok head. The aroma has a touch of cooked corn, touch of caramel. Lightly malty body, really not the best Scottish Ale I’ve had, but a drinkable beer overall.

Bottle via trade with cbkschubert.
Poured a great head that slowly fizzled away. Decent taste, well balanced with malty after taste. Goes down smooth and good with food (chicken). Pretty good bitter.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
12oz bottle via trade with cbkschubert! - Thanks Craig! - Poured dirty amber with a short creamy offwhite head that stays and laces the glass some. Aromas of caramel malts, some dough, and a touch of smoke. Flavor is quite earthy, some smoke, caramel, roasted malts, and light floral hops also a touch of toffee on the finish.. Balanced pretty well and very drinkable. Would be a fair session, but hardly a kiltlifter!

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Only had this one once in Flagstaff and didn’t return to it. Not a bad beer, but nothing that really grabbed my attention to return when given quite a few others on the board. Do remember the sweet (perhaps caramel) undertones and a nice amber ale appearance.

Great malty aroma almost sweet smelling but did not factore into flavor, what I am saying is not too sweet in flavor but very malty, hint of roast, really good drinkin brew
