Traditional Scottish ales, these beers focus on malt color and flavor with hops being almost imperceptible. Aged in American Red Oak our Shillings finish crisp and a wee bit sweet. Our Scottish ale is on the lighter end of the spectrum with our 36 Shilling being more robust and darker.

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.

rosenbergh (10639) - Tampere, FINLAND - SEP 24, 2016
Draught at the KBC, Houghton, MI. Clear copper color with a small white head. Wood, metal, dry malt and some sweetness in the aroma. The flavor is nutty and woody dry, caramel malt and some metal. Thin. Quite typical Scotch Ale. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Skyview (5696) - Papoose Jct, Minnesota, USA - SEP 5, 2016
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…..

mfhennig (281) - McHenry County, Illinois, USA - JUL 19, 2015
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.

Nero55 (919) - Wisconsin, USA - APR 11, 2015
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.

czar (7869) - Québec, Quebec, CANADA - OCT 20, 2014
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.
