3.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
On tap. Aroma of nice but unremarkable sweet, dark malts. Flavor has a delectable roasted character that is the gentlest such character Iíve experienced in a long while. Sweet, rich, but nicely roasted, pleasantly hopped. I guess Iím just writing a lot of very unspecific words at this point, but hey, it was a really good, really smooth (even though thatís a meaningless term), uncomplicated beer.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
On draft at a Dakotaís steakhouse in the Hartford area. Poured amber-copper in color, looked like a regular old amber ale (was expecting dark Scottish ale). The aroma was hoppy, citrus and pine, caramel, bread. The flavor was lighter than a dark scottish ale with caramel and bready malts the feature, finishing hoppy, slight grass elements too. Mouthfeel was moderate-heavy for an amber type ale, the malts plentiful.

From a big bottle at Whisky Live New York. Pours light brown. Malty, slightly burnt aroma. Tastes like vomit, dumped it in the nearest spit bucket.

Growler. Pour looks good, but lighter than i expected. A bit dry, some burnt notes. I would much rather have the dirty penny by these guys.

2.6 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Bottle: Cola in color, thin sudsy light beige head, sparce lacing. † Very light chocolate malt on the nose, slight peat, ash, and campfire. † Fairly strong sour notes as well. † Wow, quite sour on the tongue. † Actually, I would say this is more tart. † Its like a mini-gueuze. † Very minor shadow of anything Scottish like. † Tart and thin. † Only a very minor presense of something roasty. † Otherwise, tart, tart, and more tart. † Considering I like Gueuze, this one sorta appeals to me. † Being a flip-top, it had no shrink-wrap around the flange. † Possibly opened before? † Who knows. † A little lactic sourness on the finish. † Certainly deserves a re-rate as this is no Scottish Ale. † Thanks for the bottle John!

On tap on Pettibones Tavern. Served in ice cold glass, was hard to get much aroma until the end. Taste was subdued, a little sweet, very bready. The malt was nice with just a bit of hops on the end. Overall too boring, but serviceable.

On tap at the Eastern States Exposition in West Springfield, Massachusetts (a.k.a. the Big E). Pours a copper-amber color with an off white head that fades after a bit, but not entirely. A malty aroma is noticeable. Medium mouth feel. A tad bitter with some aftertaste, but nothing offensive. Overall a decent brew.

Lght fruity malt aroma. Clear orange color with a small white head. Lightly spicy in the begining with some bitterness. Bitterness dies off in the finish becoming a smooth spice flavor.
