COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
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.

UPDATED: OCT 12, 2004 A big session beer? Brown color, grainy aromas. Roasty, nutty, caramel sweetness. Lots of flavors masks what seems to be a fairly high abv.

Ordered the IPA but they had unfortunately run out. 2nd straight visit that this happened. Not being from Madison, this was of course a disappointment. I then ordered the ESB, but what I got was warm, flat and sour. I was told that it was a cask beer and that most people don't like it. I have a hard time believing it was supposed to be that way. Anyway, I do have positive things to say about Great Dane. Great place and definitely above average beer. Stone of Scone started off poorly with a stale, not pleasant aroma. Red body with head almost fully diminished. Flavor is rich with a relatively high alcohol presence. Despite the aesthetic shortcomings, a very solid and tasty brew.

Red brown body. Aroma is light -- cereal and malty. Taste is light caramel, slightly smoky, medium sweet. Light body.

It seems to be less harsh and nutty than other Scottish Ales I’ve had. A nice surprise.

Chestnut color with minimal head. Cherry and pepper aroma. Pepper and slight sour apple flavor with a touch of peat. Lacks some depth.

A good scottish ale. Not much aroma, nice red hue, frothy head.
