2.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Bottle purchased in Omaha. Poured a light brown color with a weak head and poor lacing. The aroma was light roast and smoke over a coffee type base. The flavor was coffee, licorice, ash, and other roast flavors, a bit astringent or rough, though. Finishes with a little bit of a citrus hop zing, but the malty side of this one was a bit disappointing, coming off more like a porter than a scottish ale (whereís the peat?).

Floral hoppy nose on this very brown pour. Faint seaweed flavor in the body with more hops and some malt. Not too great.

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Brown body. A slightly hoppy beer that really just doesnít stand out. Maybe I would think of this as a better beer, but it was going up against some better competition and just fell a little flat. Nothing really offensive here, but not so memorable either.

2.7 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 13/20
Tap. Pours a hazy dark amber color with minimal off white head. Hardly any aroma, malt, some faint hops, peppery. Flavor is bland as well, caramel, malt, some hops. Palate is thin and watery, mildly carbonated, semi-malty finish. Boo.

3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
One of the plantiest brews Iíve ever tasted: Aromas of grasses and some minute malts are complemented by bark, seaweed, and...more grass. Definitely different but not entirely too bizarre.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle (trade with ford9719). Very different aroma - lemon, green pepper or light jalapeno and leather. Hazy dark amber color with moderate head. Lightly sweet fruity flavor initial followed by a moderate malty flavor and ending with a hops and ash flavor. Different and really hard to compare to anything else Iíve drunk.

A 12 oz bottle with a best buy date stamped on the label. The beer poured a amber/copper color with a one finger tan head. A smell of hops and a citrus. The taste is mild bitterness with lemon . A crisp clean mouth feel and good carbonation.

Grain stored in a barn aroma,with touches of sweet carmelly malt,a bigger but still lightcarmel toffee malt taste,a little hop bitterness at the beginning ,but no real hop taste,somewhat standard for a Scottish Ale. Very tastey,yet light enough to enjoy several. Thanks Kingpin
