9/05/2009: Great Dane Stone of Scone Scotch Ale... Aroma: Not much aroma at all. Appearance: Bright orange color with a whispy off-white crown. Flavor: Somewhat sweet, but not malty enough; mostly has flavor of pale malts that makes it kind of sweet and syrupy. Palate: Medium-bodied, average palate. Overall: This is more like a SCOTTISH ALE rather than a true Scotch Ale (lacking depth of malt, complexity, and alcohol).

Draught at The Great Dane Pub & Brewing Co. in Madison (Hilldale), Wisconsin. Rating #52 for this beer.

noncaloric (684) - Madison, Wisconsin, USA - SEP 13, 2009
Pours a translucent mahogany, large beige head. Glass-coating lace at first, diminishing in abundance through the course of the glass. Generic caramel malt aroma. Flavor is a winner, something like a liquefied taffy apple. Very malty, apple cider and chocolate are the dominant tastes, some caramel underlying that. Medium bodied, alcohol and a light astringency combine for a very lively palate.

tmoreau (3714) - Lombard, Illinois, USA - AUG 10, 2009
On tap at the downtown Madison site. Poured to a GD pint glass a mahogany brown, with some bubbly, off white foam and clingy lacing. The aroma was immediately roasty, with a hint of smoke, and dark molasses. The flavor added a little caramel sweetness, a hint of toffee, and a touch of dry, baker’s chocolate. More of a Scottish in body, but very nice.

notalush (5728) - Denver, Colorado, USA - APR 10, 2009
A very subtle and refined scotch ale - perhaps too understated for most, but I quite liked it - mellow flavors of plum and bubble gum, with very faint notes of peat and earthiness - a moderate sweetness and semi-dry finish - quite well done.

bu11zeye (12717) - Frisco (Dallas), Texas, USA - SEP 24, 2008
(Draught) Pours a transparent chestnut brown body with a moderate beige head. Aroma of nuts, caramel, peaty, and toasted cereal. Flavor of toasted nuts, maple, brown sugar, caramel, and roasted malt.

shintriad (701) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - AUG 25, 2008
Clear, sparking body with excellent lace, reddish copper in colour. Notes of molasses, cookie dough and toffee are fairly subtle. "It’s toasted," sweet, although something a bit cheesy in the yeast.

phishpond417 (2088) - Madison, Wisconsin, USA - JUN 4, 2008
Pours a dark brown colour, medium bodied, very well balanced. Touch of caramel and syrupy notes, not overly sweet but a very full mouthfeel with a soft hoppy finish.

Skyview (5696) - Papoose Jct, Minnesota, USA - MAY 19, 2008
Served on draught at the Wisconsin Micro-brewers Beerfest in Chilton, Wisconsin. Pours a clear copper amber brew with a thin off-white head that quickly dissipates to a fine film and white ring. Aroma of multi-grain and caramel malt, a touch of peat, smoked wood and a touch of herbal spice. Taste is slightly sweet, medium bodied with very light carbonation, along with flavors of multi-grain malt, peat and a touch of vanilla bean. Finish is also semi-sweet with a malty after taste that slowly disappears.

dopplerted (11) - Rochester, Minnesota, USA - SEP 9, 2007
A nice color, but light body for Scotch ale. The flavor was faintly sweet, but had a good finish. A good middle of the road Scotch ale.
