One of the finest beers we have ever produced at Granite City. Lots of Brown and Crystal malts give a rich malt flavor, malted oats contribute a nutty, finish. The result is a great tasting beer.

Aroma is some caramel and mild roasted malts. Flavor is similar, slightly nutty, but really thin, mild, watery overall.

Tried at Granite City Brewery in Kansas City. Part of a flight. Found all of the beers to be watered down and mediocre at best. This one tastes like a bad batch or unclean lines. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Tap at GC, looks atleast like the correct style of beer and has some big smokey malt flavor so Ill give them credit for this one. it actually fits the style. still doesnt mean Id want to drink more of it.

On tap in Saint Louis Park in Minnesota - fairly good scotch ale here with the nutty taste being the big takeaway.

Tap at Granite City in St. Louis Park. Clear reddish amber pour with a smaller head. Nice aroma of smokey sweet malts. Palate is a bit thin, and the taste finishes slightly metallic.

Pour is a clear copper/amber with a thin head. Aroma of malt, caramel, light roast and vanilla. Tastes is medium to thin. This style is hit or miss with me but Id drink this again. One of the better offerings that GC has.

Pours a translucent amber with a medium creamy head. Aroma of caramel and toasted malts. Flavor of caramel, lightly toasted malt and honey roasted nuts.

Certainly the best offering Ive had at Granite City, this Scots Ale is nice, full flavored, malty, and creamy, with a little note of spiciness. A bit above the standard brewpub offering, if somewhat less than the greats of the style.

Standard ale, quite indistinct. Poured from tap a strong red color with orange tinge, no head. Palate was very smooth, but the carbonation appeared stronger than expected and most other beers. Average malt flavor with a hint of caramel, nothing extraordinary.
