Pours an amber brown. Nose is of caramel and ginger. Flows good. Taste is smooth and malty. A good beer overall, but not outstanding.

Draft sample at the source from notes. Pours a clear amber color with a small off white head. The aroma and flavor have caramel, toasted malts, a mild smoked character, some light fruit, mouthfeel was a bit thin, just ok.

I do not wax on poetically about beer but I do know the quality of a beer once tasted. This review is not about my tastes but reinforces the numbers, which are arbitrary.

Draft at Alice Cooperstown while visiting: pours a dark Amber color. Malty taste: easy drinking not as boozy as you'd expect

Copper pour from can. Taste is heavy malt, grain, light plum and charred wood. Would have been better if it had a tad bit more booze.

Bottle - unable to pour out of the bottle, but definite good malty aroma and flavor, pretty smooth finish, pretty typical "Scottish style" but good ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

This is a good but basic Scotch Ale. Smooth and drinkable, but not remarkable. Still, thumbs up.

Amber pour with sweet malt notes and s hint of smoke underneath... This might indeed lift my kilt!

Reimer96 (1743) - Alberta, CANADA - NOV 29, 2015
Pours murky amber with a small white head that dissipates quickly. Aroma is a bit off being a bit sour... But it’s mostly made up of rich caramel malt, light peat, hint of smoke sweetness. Taste is similar with a rich malt base, Carmel, but does contain a slightly off burnt Carmel which likely masks the overtones of peat and campfire. Smooth and easy to drink though.
