Nice aroma, without being overdone. Wonderful taste, but if you are expecting a Bud/Miller/Coors, donít bother. This beer is meant for those who enjoy and appreciate european ales. None of the alcohol harshness that some Scottish ales have. I highly recommend this one.

Now this is a brew that is very enjoyable I think. A nice small bitter finish, with a head that last for a little while. I really would like to try more of it.

3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Medium beaded head vanishes almost instantly. Pours the color of the brown glass it comes in. Significant amount of carbonation, considering the disappearing head act, lending a tingly mouthfeel. Malt has interesting peat influence, and a musty, leathery tinge, intersected by a dry hop finish. Well crafted, balanced, and masks the alcohol quite nicely. I had only one of these, but I can imagine how one could have many without a second thought, fulfilling the monikerís prophecy.

4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Large beige head, the lace clings to the glass in sheets, the color a clear orange-brown. Strong hints of caramel, sweet fruit, wineish, toasted malt. Quite sweet at the start, the middle is medium, the finsh is lightly carbonated, nicely hopped, and slightly dry. Beer two to add to íSample More Oftení list.

Strong sweet air, clear ruby colour, not much head. Heavy on the malts, but quite smooth. Tastes of barley, has a nice warming sensation, a fine ale. Nice on a winter evening.

Good sweet scottish ale added bonus is a kick in the pants. Cool label, you can get a better Scotch ale though.

This scottish ale has a strong slightly fruity taste that is pretty good and will also leave you shitfaced. This stuff could clean the paint off your dadís old Buick.
