Btl pours clear amber color with off white thin head, vanished quickly. No lacing on glass. Smell of sweet toffee,roasted malts,plums and raisins,very faint hint of smoke and light floral,earthy hops. Tastes of sweet caramel, toasted malts, hints of prunes and dates,very light herbal hops. Medium body with syrupy texture almost flat carbonation and extremely faint,bitter finish. IDK if this beer is old, no date on bottle. It just seems unbalanced. To sweet and virtually no hop bitterness. I would like to try this on tap. It has some unusual flavors that are intriguing but it is under carbonated and hop bitterness is non existent.

On tap at Four Peaks in Tempe, pours a clear pale copper with a small white head. Aroma is very subdued, not bringing out much other than feint bready malt. Flavour is much the same, just bready malt and maybe a touch of toasted dry caramel, but that’s a stretch. Weak and boring. Meh.

Pours dark, bubbly copper with a thick but effervescent buff head. Wimpy aroma offers toasted malt riding a smoky hint. Bolder flavor delivers more malt, and adds a caramel note, though the smoky character remains shy. Mouthfeel features average body and fizz, and a bit of woody hops in the finish. Not outstanding, but enjoyable.

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.
