On tap @ Four Peaks poured a clear copper brown with a small diminishing amber head. Aromas of carmel, hint of toffee and a hint of butter scotch. Palate was light bodied and smooth. Flavors of carmel, light butterscotch and earthiness with a smooth lightly sweet finish.

On tap in Chandler recently. Nice brew, great reddish hue and off-white head. Sweet and malty, a decent example of the style/

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.

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!

Only had this one once in Flagstaff and didnít 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

ElGaucho (2299) - Minnetonka, Minnesota, USA - MAY 12, 2006
Caramelly aroma; a little like a dunkelweiss. Somethingís a little off in the nose, but not bad. Doughy. Slightly hazy amber. Large off-white head that mostly diminshes but leaves a layer of head. Not much lace. Some visible carbonation. Initial mouthfeel is what I expected; somewhat doughy and malty. Second sip brings on some alcohol. Itís a bit of a misnomer that a 6% brew would "lift a kilt". Solid brew. Iím enjoying it. Pretty well balanced. The maltiness has some sweetness associated with it. A good brew.

A decent drinker. Smooth and malty with some roasted notes and mild hop presence. Would probably go good with food and is definitely light enough that one could have several and not feel weighted down.

On tap at Red Lobster and in bottles. Amber in color with white head that fades quickly. Carmel tones and a hint of smokiness. Not very impressed.
