Pour is a murky brown with a average tan head. Aroma is sweet malt, brown sugar and molasses. Flavor is a nice brown sugar and sweet molasses heavy malts. Finish has and almost cola like flavor. This could have used a dash of cinnamon or nutmeg to really bring this home. Still this is a malt heavy winter warmer.

Muddy brown pour, thin white head. Malty aroma. Flavor is also a bit muddy, dark malt flavors, a bit of hop at the finish with some sourness. So-so.

Bar in Waltham with Smiths. Basic brew pub style ale. Not what I would consider a Scottish Ale.

Bottle. Deep amber brown color with barely any head. Aroma was very malty, with toasted wheat. Sugary malts and caramel in flavor, slight smokey finish with bitterness. Not much else, but overall drinkable.

2.6 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
12 oZ bottle: pours chestnut brown thin head that dissipates quickly. Aroma of leather toasted malt sour yeast & resin hops. Tastes like a dishrag with caramel and some toffee thrown in to mask the flavored. Not fun or easy to drink. Not very good.

Been quite a while since I rated a scotch ale. Pours a lightly deep amber with a frothy head. Aromas of toffee, caramel, slight hint of bubblegum, slight banana, and light grain. Flavors of slight banana esters, light toffee, slight smoke, and light caramel. All the flavors are light. Leaves a slight smoke aftertaste, but not noticed much in the flavors or aroma. Lightly bitter and lightly sweet. Interesting off the beat brew than what I’m used to.
