COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Robust and strapping, our Scotch Ale takes BIG Beers to a whole new level. Rich malt balances perfectly with delicate hops to provide a concentrated and intense flavor; an ideal companion for hearty foods, or as a meal unto itself. Allow this ale to warm slightly in your glass to enhance its truly bold character. Sharing is encouraged, as this is one beer that lives up to its name! Hey! No peeking! Slainté!

GIJOE (574) - North Berwick, Maine, USA - MAR 8, 2013
Pours deep amber, pops a good, foamy, white head. Light lacing with thin filmy head after a couple minutes. Smells like a loaf of white bread with a hint of grapefruity, citric acid. Taste is balanced sweet malt and hoppy, citrus bitterness. Not a bad brew at all. I don't know that I'd say it blows my kilt up, but I grab one from time to time at local pub.

Solid reddish brown smallish off-white head. Earthy wooden and musty mineral aroma. Flavor starts sharp and woody and finishes same with a little caramel malt flavor. Nice sessionable Scotch. The bite is the.l best part

Bomber...tried it again after at least 8 years..nothings changed. Really unremarkable ale, not much flavor..not much of anything. Moylan’s always disapoints me..too bad they’re just up the highway..

Pours a beautiful reddish-golden brown with an off-white head. Light, malty aromas with hints of currant. Flavor starts like a rich barleywine and ends with a smooth nuttiness. Taste gets richer as it warms in the glass.

Pretty good. Opens up after a bit as initially I thought this was lacking something. Good malts and would drink again. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
