3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
UPDATED: JAN 14, 2015 Very clean and alty brew. some yeast which is almost bubblegummy. Overall it is solid but I would have liked more toasted malt character and a different english ale yeast. 2 year aged bottle: Darker pour than I remember, hazed amber poured with lees, the creamy off-white head sticks forever. Aroma of a brandy old fashioned, bubblegum, vanilla, oak, poached pear, ginger, and spice. Flavor is toffee and dark fruits, hit of alchol, some earthiness and spice. This aged really well. Bumped to a higher score

Enjoyed at a friends house prior to going to 3 Floyd's. Appearance is a moderately cloudy caramel with a very rich slightly off white head. Aroma of ale yeast, a bit of spice, with a touch of caramel and toffee. Taste is crisp like other New Glarus brews, definitely malty with a bit of a roasted flavor. Good stuff, happy to have enjoyed.

Solid for the style, but it?s not really my thing. Very malty, delicious but not refreshing. Boozy as it warms up.

Bottle. Hard to call this a Scotch Ale...Light Orange in color, with aromas of dried fruit- apricot and cherries. Some spicy yeast in there too. Taste is hot, with the alcohol noticeable right away. More dried fruit, sweet and malty. Toffee and caramel towards the end. More apricot too. More like a Dubbel than a Scotch. This is good, flavorful, and well made, despite the label...

Bottle from Ray’s in Tosa. Pours a golden orange with a foamy white head leaving nice lacing. Aroma has toffee, fruits, some bread and a tinge of a metallicness. Taste is of sweet toffee, tangy fruit, toastiness, peat and some alcohol. Smooth and easy. Finishes sweet with a little tang and some kick. Nice smooth scotchie.

Pours well out of the bottle with a medium bodied head and an orange / brownish hue. Very Pungent aroma with notes of citrus and scotch. Heavy tasting scotch ale.

Aroma of raisin, white grape, and apricot. Flavor also reminiscent of raisin, white grape, and apricot. It is balanced toward sweetness, but has a mild bitterness in the finish. Also has a bready finish. Medium full body with a mouth filling carbonation. Delicious little beer.

12oz bottle, courtesy of New Glarus. Thanks! Pours a deep, clear orange-amber color; creamy, fine-bubbled light-tan head with nice lacing. Aroma shows a lot of candied sweetness and red fruits, though the sweetness itself is well restrained. Medium body; medium-high carbonation; a modest acidity and lean profile (for what otherwise seems a hefty brew) keep this from being overly hefty; lots of hard candy, toffee, and red fruitiness throughout; again, it never goes cloying, offering pretty pinpoint mouthfeel and composition. The finish offers some ascending bitterness and a candied balance overall.
