On tap at Fat Alberts in Greeley, CO. The clear red/brown body is thcik and smooth with sweet caramel (too sweet after awhile). Very low hop presence here, but a nice malty drink otherwise.

A little thin once it hits the lips, but this is a big beer. I agree with another rater who tastes more alcohol than is in the beer. Also grains and decent hops. Little malt and smooth finish.

tap-some bar in Salida, CO-pours deep amber hue with minimal white head. Sweet malt, but no peat on the aroma. flavors are malty, earthy and sweet. palate is flimsy and not all together. needs work.

3.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Slightly hazed dark reddish appearance, good head formation. Sweet toffee, caramel, biscuity, malt emphasised flavor. Good hop balance provides refreshing drinkability. Pretty good brew.

2.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
A cloudy brown with a hint of orange, looks like iced tea. Has a roasted nutty aroma. Not very rich, has a crisp dry taste. Bitter with hints of citrus and maybe even some iced tea flavor. It has a lack of real flavor.

I dont know what to think about this beer. It isn’t horrible and it isn’t good. I wouldn’t buy it again but I wouldn’t say it sucked. This was my first Scottish Ale.

2.5 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
Pours amber with a fluffy off white head. I can’t really smell anything except a light vinegar smell. Low malts, low hops. Decent body. Not much in the finish. Kind of disappointing.

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.
