COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
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.

BrownALEx (247) - Portland, Michigan, USA - NOV 7, 2012
Poured from a can (thatís all they do). A reddish brown fills the glass behind a roaring off white head. Two fingers at least that has a creamy top. Amora has caramel and biscuit smells. Rather sweet. Tastes like spiced caramel. Again, rather sweet. Palate is light to slighty medium. Leaves a small spicy burn at the end. Keweenaw states that they have a goal to turn beer drinkers into craft beer lovers. With that said thier beer is going to be on the watery side in hopes of getting "da uppers" to drink it. Overall this is a good beer, could be a little more bold, but thatís not thier mission.

12 oz. can. Clear amber color. Modest head and body. Sweet malt, with no hops! Probably on target for the style.

strongpieman (1390) - Mount Airy, Maryland, USA - FEB 2, 2013
Can. Amber clear no head. Moderate malty aroma, some light peat ... Not overly strong though. Medium body, smooth. Overall good... No strong aroma / tastes.

dekester1 (299) - Neenah, Wisconsin, USA - SEP 23, 2012
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 itís not sold locally.

Onslow (1102) - Kalamazoo, Michigan, USA - JAN 2, 2012
Pour from a 12oz can. Medium amber brew with moderate off white head. Sur aroma of unripe fruit, Taste reminds me of wheat ale - thin, light, a bit of bitter malt and grain ending in a tart / sour taste. Reminds me of Bellís Oarsman Ale, but a little more malty. Thin palate, light bodied. Not at all what I expect from a Scottish Ale. I was humming "O Guid Ale Comes" when I popped open the can, but I fear this would fall short of Burnís expectations...

CaptainCougar (7129) - Columbia, Maryland, USA - SEP 26, 2011
12oz can thanks to nuplastikk: Pours a clear deep mahogany with a spotty-lacing white head. Has a lightly sweet light caramel malty nose with some light tartness and fruity notes. Starts with light effervescence and toasty caramel maltiness with a touch of peat and some vinegar notes before a thinner finish.

BigBeer45 (1210) - Michigan, USA - JUN 6, 2012
Can, this beer had a clear medium red pour with darker red and brown hues at the edges, the pour made a one finger off-white head that recedes quickly to a thin open cover and ring, effervescence was a little less than medium, the glass had a center stream of less than medium flow of bubbles, and there was a little lacing on the sides of the glass, there were aromas of toasted and some roasted malt, malt sweetness, and some caramel, this ale had toasted and light roasted malt, some caramel, malt and faint brown sugar sweetness, very faint dark fruit in the background, this drink starts with some sweetness but finishes less so, the mouth feel is about medium or a little less, easy to drink, aroma and flavor are similar to a Scotch ale but not as intense, no peated malt aroma or flavor but ok.

Dark tea color weak head from the can. Rich caramel aroma with a slightly sweet start. Slightly bitter in the finish that is refreshing.

BVery (5617) - Burnsville, Minnesota, USA - APR 30, 2012
UPDATED: DEC 30, 2013 Can. Wow - this is not good at all. Decent clear amber pour with a foamy head. Aroma isnít all that malty - more sweet. Super thin palate. Taste is green apple, kind of bland, a bit sweet and tart.

wmubronco1992 (589) - Coldwater, Michigan, USA - SEP 16, 2012
Can. Poured a dark amber. Medium sized off white head. Caramel aroma. Flavor of malt and sweet caramel. This was an enjoyable beer, but for me the body was lighter then what Iíd like to see in a Scotch ale. No noticeable peat. Would drink again, but hard for me to think of as a Scotch.
