2.9 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Picked up a single 12-oz can from Riley’s Wines of the World in Madison, Wisconsin. Pours a semi-clear amber brown colored brew with a fast dissipating off-white head that leaves behind a thin ring. Aroma of sweet caramel malt, a hint of honey and a touch of floral hops. Taste is light to medium bodied with flavors of sweet caramel malt, a touch of downstairs cellar and a wee bit of honey. Finish is semi-sweet, very low bitterness and a sweet caramel malt aftertaste that quickly disappears. A lighter scottish ale compared to most other overall.

I love Blatz. This stuff not so much. Forego this foofy little drink and give it to your “sophisticated” acquaintances, and you can watch them with your bloodshot eyes and think: “What a bunch of idiots!” Secure your place in the pantheon of Beer legends (Val Blatz…..Joseph Schlitz…. Billy Carter) and keep this stuff away from your yapper…..

2.2 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 8/20
Poured from a 12 oz can. They got the color right but to transparent. Aroma of malt was very weak, taste was almost nonexistent. This beer had nothing going for it. Very disappointing Scotch Ale.

2.9 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Draft. Brown/amber with thin beige head. Aroma of light malt sweetness, caramel, and toasted malt. Light body, caramel, toasted malt, medium sweetness, light metallic note, and a malty sweet finish. A little too thin on the body and more of an amber ale.

Another weak beer. I had much higher hopes. I gues a brewery in a college town is bound to do well. Faint peat earthiness, again, its watery.
