2.9 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
A very dry start . Almost citrus in quality, and quite crisp. Fairly hoppy, not the best scottish ale, but it is still good.

I didn't really like this. Came off a little too bland, and I think it could have had a bigger mouthfeel. Hard for me to believe this is a scottish ale. Decent hopping though.

nice brown clear colour, delicious head, nice lace work. Medium body, but nice flavour; a bit of the roasted barley taste

3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Dark hazy reddish brown in color with a decent off white head that sticks to my glass. Bready and caramel aromas, starts sweet and creamy with a hint of caramel, medium bodied, nice creamy and round mouthfeel, finishes smooth and clean, another good one from this brewery, very drinkable.

2.5 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
Pours a deep amber color, with a rich frothy head, small and some light lacing. A very thin mouthfeel, with a medium body and a subtle malt character. This is not really what I would expect in a scotch ale, the aroma is very off and astrigent, just unbalanced, like most of the outings I have tried from this brewery.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
Rich amber color with a small head but excellent lacing. Initial citrus aroma leaning towards grapefuit with some bready maltiness, brown sugar and butter notes. Nice caramel, toffee and grapefruit flavors with a medium dryish finish with a slight bitterness. Not really my idea of a Scotch ale but a well balanced and tasty brew anyway.

2.3 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
All I can say is nice try. ALmost an off aroma. Not much, if any malt flavor throughout. Not even what I would consider a good attempt at a Scottish Ale.

4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Dark reddish amber color with a nice medium head. Aroma has subtle hints of citrus and caramel. Nice tasting with hints of fig and a good hoppy finish. A very drinkable beer - one of my old reliables.
