JBoan (176) - Arizona, USA - SEP 16, 2013
On tap @ Four Peaks. Pours a deep amber with a white bubbly head. Smell is bops, roasted sweet malts, some dark fruits and caramel and slight smoke. Taste is roasted sweet malts, caramel, toffee, faint smoke and slight hops. Medium bodied and good carbonation. Not the best Scottish Ale but decent brew.

Vballnbeer (158) - Gorham, Maine, USA - JUL 5, 2013
Previous raters must not have been to the brewery to enjoy this fine beer on draft. It is their flagship beer and is very drinkable with a strong malty body and a dry, hoppy finish. It is a solid beer, suitable for daily consumption.

jkwalking05 (3491) - Arlington, Texas, USA - JUL 3, 2013
Rated in 2010 (Backlog) - Amber with an average white head. Aroma is of malt, fruit and bath water. Taste is off-putting, malty, soapy.

Realcoolhand67 (12) - Surprise, Arizona, USA - JUN 23, 2013
Poured cold from bottle into pint glass. Slightly cloudy amber color with very little head. Little to no lacing for this particular pour. Very little carbonation. Very sweet caramel, toasty, light smoky flavor. Tasted little to no hops, mostly sweet caramel, toffee, and malt. Decent for this style I suppose. Im an IPA fan so Im not the best judge. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Dogbrick (7243) - Columbus, Ohio, USA - JUN 22, 2013
On draught at Yard House in Scottsdale. This beer is a slightly cloudy reddish-amber color with a medium thin light beige head that recedes quickly to an outer ring. Spotty lacing on the glass. Aroma of smoked malt and hops. Medium body with a mildly smoky character and flavors of grainy malt and hops. The finish is sweet with a short malt aftertaste. Slightly above average overall.
