Pours copper, smells and tastes sweet. Was kind of plain and dry. Not bad but not great scotch ale. I wasn’t sure where it was going.

spikee (96) - Providence, Rhode Island, USA - FEB 24, 2005
Nose is almost nonexistent. Small, white head with a good amount of lacing. Pours a clear sparkling copper. Flavor is sweet with a moderately sweet finish and a touch of alcohol. Medium-bodied with a watery feel around the mouth and a fair amount of fizz. Decent, although not particularly noteworthy. (Draft at brewpub in Philly)

Draught @ Brewery: Very little scent. Pourded medium brown color with small, non-lasting brownish head. Taste was pretty good. Not too malty, as I had expected it would be. Roasted and toasted notes with a bit of vanilla. Easy to drink. Overall, I could have a few of these, but I still prefer IPAs.

On draft at the Philly Fringe Festival Cabaret in Poor Henry’s old spot. Thin, weak, forgettable brown ale. Too bad.

Nate (4200) - Indiana, Pennsylvania, USA - AUG 23, 2004
Malty aroma, but weak. Copper-brown clear with thin off-white lacing head. Medium body with medium-high carbonation. Starts with medium malts, light acidity, no bitterness. Dry caramel malt, light sweetness. Hint of café, nuttiness. After is papery with some nuttiness.

very light interpretation of a scottish ale. has a light hint of smoked malt but is sweet and very thin, just smells of brown sugar

DocLock (10000) - Lower Pottsgrove, Pennsylvania, USA - JUN 21, 2004
Pours dark brown with some malt, toffee, and cognac aromas. Tastes of malt, toffee, some hops. A little thin on mouthfeel.

egajdzis (6136) - Pennsburg, Pennsylvania, USA - JUN 20, 2004
UPDATED: APR 21, 2005 Deep amber color with a small tan head. Malty and roasty aroma. Very light smoke and caramel taste. Some roast in there as well. Very nice subtleties in this cask conditioned beer.

cb (810) - Roeland Park, Kansas, USA - JUN 11, 2004
Mild yet flavorful. Grain/malt/slightly chewy. Big of smoke in finish. Roasty aroma. Good example for the light scottish it is. I wasn’t expecting it to be a crazy wee-heavy because its not a scotch ale. Having sampled quite a few in the style made in Scotland, I think it was true to style. I just wish it wasn’t filtered.
