COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Rich malty flavors of caramelized and toasted grains dominate this robust Scotch ale. A hint of rye adds a crisp, scotch-like, old-world beer character, reminiscent of a simpler life from centuries ago. It’s a wee-bit heavy.

JulienHuxley (5541) - Trois-Rivières, Quebec, - OCT 8, 2012
Bottle. Clear copper pour with a ring of foam. Aroma is ultra fruity, tons of pear, apple cider, perry and the likes, boozy and fruity. Taste is boozy, some honey notes, fruit, lots of pear again. Body is rich, thick bodied and well carbed. Except for the palate, this one was pretty miserable.

travelguy (5) - USA - JUL 11, 2016 does not count
Pours hazy amber with little head. Very malty with almost no hop presence. I’m not a fan of overly hopped ale but this one needs more...very little character to this.

Draft 0.15l at The Beer Temple Amsterdam, The Netherlands. 24.05.2016. Taste with Zlotta. Pour it little bit hazy amber color with small white head. Aroma red fruits, sweet bubble gum note. Taste of apples, spices, red fruits, figs, little bit grassy thing. medium body, slick feel, average carbonation. Classic Scotch Ale I think.

onceblind (6937) - Denver, Colorado, USA - MAY 28, 2016
Hazy deep Amber with a thin ivory cap that recedes a little faster than I like, leaving behind a thin ring of foam around the edge of the glass. A little earthy Amber malt and a little peat. Smooth and not at all boozy flavor with some earthy Amber scotch malt, and a mild British bitterness. Smooth and amberish, very balanced and slightly Scottish.

Zlotta (1847) - Hagen, GERMANY - MAY 24, 2016
Sampled from tap at ’Beertemple’. Clear, deep red with a frothy, tan head. Sweetish, slightly fruity aroma of caramel, strawberry jam and jelly. Sweetish-malty, slightly fruity taste of caramel, strawberry jam and jelly, followed by a short, slightly bitter, a little spicy finish with notes of juniper. Medium to full body, oily mouthfeel, flat. Nice, but not very deep.
