Pours brown from tap with very little head. A bit of caramel on the nose. Faint maltiness on the tongue. Finishes clean. Meh!

A pretty decent Scottish ale, but didn’t have the level of bitterness I was expecting. It is very drinkable nonetheless.

On tap. This has a lot of opening Koelsh Ale attributes with fresh fruits, but then has a nice ho finish, cloudy light Amber, enough malt and just a little pleasant funky subtle tatse in the middle

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Draft sample at brewpub. Pours red with orange hues and a small, eg shell head. Big malty nose, caramel. Taste is a smooth caramel with mild chocolate undertones and a nice crisp finish. A bit watery. Tasty.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Draft. Body is kind of amber with a sweet aroma and a little bit of hops in the flavor. Pretty bland and hard to separate from the ESB.

2.5 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 13/20
UPDATED: DEC 31, 2007 Creamy head with a slight staw aroma. Color of darker cream soda or lighter root beer. Initial palate is pretty flat. Earthy flavors with some hints of fruit or flowery taste. Finish is mild building bitterness, but justbarely.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
Buckwheat honey and flowers, malty nose with smooth fruitiness and mild hops aroma. Dark amber maple syrup clear with thin head. Medium watery body with medium carbonation. Starts with honey maple sweetness, light acidity and mild hops. Bit of smoky character to it, too. Malty throughout with nice sweet-hop balance. After is mild sweet and nutty. Not bitter at all. A decent Scottish ale.
