3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Draft at Old Chicago in SD. Clear copper color with a huge frothy off-white head that lasted and had good lacing. Moderate balanced malt and hoppy aroma. Medium body. Medium balanced sweet bitter flavor with a medium bitter finish of moderate duration. First beer from this brewer and it was better than my expectations.

Brown with a small off-white head. Sweet malty toffee and caramel aroma. The flavor is nutty with hints of caramel. Too mnay hints at a brown ale for my taste.

3.9 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
Poured from a 12 oz. bottle as a reddish-orange, with lingering off-white head and excellent lacing. Aroma was slightly detectable hoppiness, but flavor was a perfect blend of hops and malts. Finish was very smooth, somewhat warming, and long lasting. I really enjoyed this beer.

A medium body amber ale with smooth but not powerful flavor. It has a crisp dry taste, not very malt rich. A smooth hop finish. Not my favorite, but is a good beer.

This is a pretty decent ale. Crisp with a good, full-bodied character. Not exactly up to par with the real deal from Scotland – but good. We got a pony keg of it for a party and it’s a great drinking beer. Nice compromise between a full-bodied amber and something you can continuously drink all night without getting too full. I would put this as my third favorite from Odell after their Cutthroat Porter and Easy Street Wheat.

Mountain Brewers Beer Fest 2006. Lack of appearance judging reflects opaque plastic sampling cup.
Only average brown ale, a style I’m not a huge fan of to begin with.

This is a Scottish Ale? I would have pegged this as an American Pale, certainly not an Amber Ale which is what it states on the label. Piney hops and light on the malt. A little fruit and spruce in the nose. I like it better than their wheat beer.

On tap at their tasting room. They call this a Scottish? Def. thought it was more of an Amber....pretty light in taste. Decent beer, though one of the weakest I tried at Odell.
