Slick (1969) - Thief River Falls, Minnesota, USA - APR 24, 2004
Dark brown color,small off white head that faded quickly but left a ver small amount of lace.Malty caramel aroma lightly roasty with maybe a hint of hops coming through.malty taste with a decent caramel flavor but still a bit thin.The alcohol is mild at best with just a faint hop presence.Yes it is somewhat sweet with a burnt like quality coming through as well.Over all it's pretty good and definately better then the 2 previous brews i've had from them.Well worth trying again and i's have to say that this brew would make a decent summer drinker.Thanks to Joeybgood for sending this brew.

iwantalambic (1478) - St. Louis, Missouri, USA - MAR 14, 2004
Cask, RAF Chicago, 2004: Translucent red plum - fairly still with small white bubbles. Malted, alcoholic plum aroma, with some neat grassy notes that join well with the deep peatiness. Crisp, refreshing palate - clean fresh pears and deep orange (non-tart) plum flesh. Though the finish is lacking an interesting catch, the wonderful fruity flavours make an enjoyable experience.

muzzlehatch (4424) - Burlington, Vermont, USA - JAN 1, 2004
Draft sample, July 03. Medium red, clear, no head; light butterscotch/earthy aroma, not much goin on so I was pleasantly surprised by the powerful brown sugar/anise sweet spicy flavors. Ending is a bit thin, alas my hopes were rising for this one! Still, not a bad choice if passing through Oshkosh.

kmeves (1098) - Mount Pleasant, Wisconsin, USA - OCT 14, 2002
Head is very small. Color is a deep amber. Flavor is sweet and "grainy". Hops come out in the finish.

A polite and pleasant Scottish ale that nonetheless lacks something in memorability.

ElGaucho (2156) - Minnetonka, Minnesota, USA - JUL 10, 2002
Attractive, mahogany color. Sweet and noticeably malty. I expected a stronger alcohol flavor, though that is more characteristic of a Scotch Ale than a Scottish Ale. A good offering for less seasoned beer palates that nevertheless require some body in their suds.
