bottle from Mondiale ’07.
dark ruby color, thin beige head, good lacing. Very nice malty aroma, and also hoppy aroma. Flavour is incredibly balanced. This isn’t spectacular, but a perfect session beer!

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 15/20
Picked this up at Hy-Vee, let it sit for a couple of months and poured it into an english pint. Has a hazy amber color with a 1 finger tan head. Floral hops immediate come out when pouring, followed by fresh grass and chocolate. Weak cohcolate milk (more milk than syrup), pine, light citrus, and a floral bitterness on the taste. Aftertaste of cereal malt, floral hops, and chocolate. A smooth medium palate and very light carbonation, almost as if it had been hand-drawn into the bottle. A delightful blend of sweet maltiness and light bitter hoppiness. The palate was easily my favorite part and really made this a great beer for me.

Bottle. Amberish copper color. Taste the malt right away, with a nice touch of hops. Sweet, caramel taste is there too. I was quite surprised by this one as I normally am so so with Scottish Ale.

Bottle from Mystery Swap 2.0. Hazy medium brown pour with 1-finger khaki head. Aroma of bready caramel malt, nuts, slight hops. Tastes caramel malty, but not richly malty, with some hops, mild tannins, slight almond and fruit notes. Not terribly complex.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
Draught @ Falling Rock Tap House: Deep copper, fiery, moderate foamy off-white head, very nice lacing.   Seems like a Vienna malt on the nose, slight caramel, a bit roasty even.   Soft roasted malt tongue, fairly thick and rich, low hop profile.   Slightly nutty, but seems to be missing the peat and smoked aspect.   Warming, but no alcohol is noticed.   Very malty brew, but not that sophisticated.   Thick on the tongue, but a bit dissapointing overall.   Give me some Chub!

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 (where’s the peat?).
