3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Poured from a can a beautiful, dark red/amber with a nice frothy head that lingered and faded to very nice lacing. Aroma was malty and sweet with a slight smokey/oak hint. Taste included sweet maltiness, caramel and hint of oak aging. Body and density was above average. Overall, I liked this Scottish ale! Too bad it’s not sold locally.

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.

can. pours almost clear bright dark golden orange with a quite nice light beige-orange head, some retention and lacing. caramel, caramunich, spicy toasted maltiness, some fruitiness, wet grains, light woodsy astringent notes, awkward plastic notes along very light smoky-ashy notes, some brown sugar sweetness. light carbonation, light to medium body - oily, semi-sweet spicy-pepepry-grassy finish. had hopes with a its nice aroma. falls more than short.

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.

12oz can, purchased from Woodstock Wine in Cheese in Michigan. Enjoyed at night on a windy pontoon (rating live). Poured into a glass... Like I said, it’s very dark, but against the pale light of my laptop it looks amber. Thin off-white head. Leaves some loose lace. Caramel malty taste, mostly. Musty. Some dark fruit. Moderate sweet taste, light bit of tart, some spiciness. A whatever amber / scottish ale.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Appearance - 4/5 - murky brown with a nice off white head that sticks. Laces a bit too.
Aroma - 7/10 - creamy maltiness and some light peat. Brown sugar.
Taste - 8/10 - nice creamy malt, malted milk, light peat, very light caramel and chocolate
Mouth/palate - 4/5 - creamy, slightly watery, alc covered, aftertaste is creamy malt extract
Overall -- 13/20 - great beer, goes along with their mission of getting people into craft beer, good for big 3 drinkers and craft drinkers alike!
