3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Dark amber in my chalice. I got a little foamy biege head when I poured it out of the bottle that settled into a fine whispy slick. Nutty grain nose. Caramel sweetness with some bread, nuts, and faint peat. As it warms the sweetness almost turns into white sugar. Struck me a thin for a Scottish ale.

dark amber in color. The aroma is of malts. The flavor is of sharp dry malts, and bread.

I have to say this is a terrific beer!!! Great flavors, mix hoppy citrusy, amber smoothness and nice bitter finish under the layers of flavors. This is a must for anyone who hasn’t had this style or tried this breweries products. Its great.

3.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Dark brown color with a tinge of hazy copper. Tan head with light lacing. The aroma is light but sweet with some malt & caramel. The flavor is balanced and nicely sweet with a light alcohol bite. Finishes fruity and zesty. quite good for the Denver airport.

4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 17/20
Sweetness dominates the flavor, aroma and mouthfeel. Not much in the way of hoppy flavors or bitterness. The only detraction I find is a slight astringency.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
A dark gold-copper color. Very malty sweet. Nice malt aroma. Full mouth feel, without being a big beer. Could be a little richer, but still a routine favorite. Best on tap.

2.8 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 12/20
Light brown in flavor with a quickly diminishing head. Smells malty. A little watery taste, not quite thick enough for my impression of a 90 shilling.

2.7 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Copper color with almost no head. A slight malt aroma. Spritzy on the tongue, with a slightly thin body. Sweetish on the start and drying on the finish. Some hop bitterness. So so scotch.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
12 oz bottle, snifter. Plums, figs and caramel are the main components of the aroma. Deep maroon body with a tight, off-white head. Heavily sweet flavor becomes a moderately sweet finish. Medium-heavy body, oily texture, soft carbonation. The bottom line is: not bad by any means, but just not exciting.
