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.

From the tap @ Great Dane in Madison. Dark, nutty brown in color. Medium body. Smooth feel and taste. Not that much of a meal as some other dark beers are. Very good beer.

From a 1 hour old growler. Toasted caramel with a smoky-nutty twist. Dark ruby-brown iwth a thin, off-white head. Sweet butterscotch and brown sugar flavor with toasted caramel. I like this one, but it can be a little too sweet. Medium-light body with a watery feel.

StewardofGondor (1934) - Washington Heights - Milwaukee, Wisconsin, USA - JUN 5, 2005
Translucent amber brown with an edged head. Aroma is caramel malts, toffee and Fabreeze. Nice full mouth feel; some oiliness and wax. Flavors are caramel, butterscotch and toffee. Some maple syrup, like taking a bite of syrup covered pancakes that were kept on the griddle 30 seconds too long. Encompassing, but all over the place.

Poured a very dark amber that is almost brown. The head is off white and slightly yellow. The aroma is deep caramel and vanilla. The taste has milk chocolate, caramel and vanilla. There is also a light hint of smoke. The body is a little thin.

Clear and dark red with little head. Big in body with flavors of vanilla and toffee. A bit one dimensional.

1FastSTi (3341) - Glendale, Wisconsin, USA - APR 10, 2005
Sampled at the 3rd Annual "Between the Bluffs" Beer and Cheese Festival in La Crosse, WI. Appearance: tan head, clear brown body. No carbonation. Aroma is mild oakiness, mild chocolate, kinda weak. Flavor is chocolate, mild peatiness, oak cask, light coffee. Palate is a little dry, sweet tangy finish. Moderate mouthfeel. Overall, I don’t usually like scotch-style ale but this is really well done.

A bit sweet and malty for this type but alcohol was there. It was a good tasting beer.

A nice example of the style. Pleasantly sweet but definite alcohol. I enjoyed the beer, but not something I can drink a lot of. This is an occasional beer - something reserved for a special night.

Always like this one. Rich caramel color and flavor characterize this ale. Nice alcohol presence with the sweet malt. Smooth finish that lingers well.
