COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Our Scotch Ale starts with a beautiful off-white head above an intense amber body. A faint peaty aroma compliments a light caramel sweet entrance that gives way to a hint of smokiness and a dry finish. This is an ultra clean, malty beer that will get your bagpipes blazing!

vyvvy (5529) - Florissant, Missouri, USA - MAY 12, 2016
Pours tawny brown with an off white head. Itís lightly nutty, toasty and has English slant. It has a medium crisp body with biting carbonation. Had nice nuttiness and scotch and caramel/toffee, but the spice and carbonation is a little too intense. Still nice though.

Nate (4114) - Indiana, Pennsylvania, USA - APR 8, 2016
On tap at the brewery (5/15/15). Mild peaty smoke aroma and some Band-Aid. Light toasted grain. Dark caramel clear with thin head. Medium body with medium carbonation. Starts moderately dry with peat smoke and Band-Aid. Nutty hoppy bitter notes in the finish with moderate sweetness. Band-Aid smoky nutty after.

DCLawyer (2443) - Falls Church, Virginia, USA - APR 17, 2015
Draft taster at the brewpub. Medium brown with small lite tan head. Smoke, caramel malt, peat, as expected for the style. Not particularly well executed.

nuplastikk (5708) - Madison, Wisconsin, USA - NOV 1, 2014
Tap at MBC. Amber caramel brown body. Thin off-white/beige head. Light to medium bodied. The UK yeast sort of takes over. Not so impressive.

boto (2078) - Granby, Connecticut, USA - OCT 12, 2014
Draught @ Brewpub: This one pours a clear, very dark copper color. There was a small off white head that didnít linger or leave any lacing. It has a nice nose. Caramel malts, some peat and smokiness. The taste is also good. A good malt body, but no real sweeetness. A somewhat dry finish. Some peat and smokey notes. A good solid beer!

Aubrey (3509) - Bellingham, Washington, USA - OCT 3, 2014
Smooth and malty with sugary notes of caramel and toffee. Subtle aspects of roast, toast, peat and light smoke follow. Good, but a little too sweet for my buds.
