growler. Smooth malty w/ a slight alcohol tinge. Close to session style scotch, not bad. Extra points for locality.

2.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Poured from a 12 OZ can into a pint glass.
Aroma- Has a very sweet malt and vanilla aroma.
Appearance- This beer is a light brown color with a small tan colored head.
Taste- Has a mellow malt flavor with a mix of vanilla, i did not care for the aftertaste.
Palate- A heavy bodied beer with mild carbonation and an oily texture.
Overall- I have not jumped on the "Scotch Ale" bandwagon yet. I have tried several and none of them have blown me away yet. I will try this beer again once I have sampled more of this style.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Pours a medium caramel brown with a pillowy off white head and has notes of sweet toasted malts, caramel and a light herbal hop. It has a lightly malty sweet carmel taste with a small dark fruit presence at first, then a decent bitterness slips in to balances it out...

1.7 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 7/20
French Broad Wee-Heavy-Er Scotch Style Ale has a thin, beige head, a red-brown, somewhat bubbly appearance, some ascending bubbles, and minor lacing left behind. The aroma is of an odd sweet-sour, some peat, a touch of smoke, caramel candy, and brown bread crust. Taste is of the same strange sweet & sour sauce, moderate bitterness, lemon, lime, and bread. Mouthfeel is on the light side, and French Broad Wee-Heavy-Er finishes mostly dry and not unlike Bud Light Lime, in some respects. RJT

2.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Can. Just an average Scotch Ale. Amber color with not much head. Aroma is a malty, caramel, dried fruit smell. The taste is where it falls flat. The flavor starts off fine. Caramel and such. The after-taste is terrible. Chemical-bitter taste.
