Named for the stone upon which Scottish kings were crowned, our Scoth Ale represents a tradition of brewing excellence. You will enjoy a hint of caramel sweetness, a well-rounded flavor, and superior drinkability.

A little light on body for a scoth ale. Very dark in color, but not as rich and chocalety as i had hoped. This all may be way off as this was the last in a 6 glass sampler and i was all askew by then!

On tap, tastes nicely malty, remarkably smooth. Very nice beer. Wish I had had more time at the airport to drink it slowly and write down my thoughts, but I will be ordering another one the next time I’m in Wisconsin.

GeneralGao (3614) - Iowa City, Iowa, USA - FEB 18, 2007
Draft at the brewpub. Poured a clear orange brown color. Head was thin, off white, and left a bit of lace on the glass. Not much in the way of aroma other that light grainy malt. The same grainy note came out again in the flavor and was accompanied by malty caramel and a subdued nuttiness. Creamy, smooth, and slightly sweet on the tongue.

On tap.
Pours a clear dark auburn; thin head that leaves spots of lace. Dry, nutty, toasty grain aroma is a little unusual for a Scotch ale; this smells more like a standard brown ale. One sip removes all doubt that this is indeed a scotch ale: malty, chocolatey, creamy and sweet with a subued dry grain. A light hop presence shows up later. Smooth, creamy palate reminiscent of a nitro-drawn beer. This is one heck of a scotch ale.

(Tap) Pours an amber/brown color. Sweet toffee and nutty notes, with only a small amount of hops detectable. Not very balanced, but drinkable given the fact I only tried the sample. A so-so Scotch ale.

Had on tap while visiting friends in Madison, and picked up a growler to bring home. Pours a dark ruby red witha thick light tan head that laces nicely. Potent malty aroma with some woody and smokey notes and some evident light hops. Slightly bitter with a dry roastiness to the body. Finishes bitter sweet. A very smooth rich beer. Quite good.

Clear dark amber with no head. The aroma is very faint with some raisins and toffee. The flavor is semi-sweet, caramel and a bit of pine. Medium body with a bitter end.

On tap at the Fitchburg Great Dane location. The bronze colored body had a very faint head and scents of roasted melts and cherries mingled with some light flowery tones. In the body there were cherry, caramel butter and oak flavors competing for my attention. Overall it was exceptionally creamy and smooth with a nice semi-sweet finish. At the very end I detected hints of bitterness to balance out the experience. Enjoyable and a great standy for those times when you can’t make up your mind.
