2.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 7/20
(Bottle) The worst Scottish ale I’ve had. Cola taste, thin body, astringent aftertaste. This is a very bad beer.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle to mini snifter. pours dark copper to red with a medium of white head that dies quickly to leave nearly nothing. Aroma is sweet and toffee with a slight crusty and bready note. Taste is a mix of hop bitterness with a sweet toffee and caramel back bone. Finish shows just a tad bit of dry roastiness in the very back of the finish. A very faint smokiness or it could be the light chocolate. I’m rather impressed by this one, considering it is typically a less than exciting style.

3.6 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
Restrained aroma with cloudy copper colour. Flavour is nicely balanced to start and gently gives way to a light bitter finish. An interesting alternative to the regular pale ale.

Poured from tap to glass. Golden hue with creamy white head. Aroma is burnt malt, honey, esters, hay. Mouthfeel is ok with a medium body and soft carbonation. Taste is sweet with an astringent following and estery finish. Overall this isn’t that great.

3.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 16/20
Draft pour at Bambinos. Pours a dark red color with little to no head. Very mellow tasting scotch ale with some nice, calm malt flavors and some spice. A nice, balancing, yet light hop presence to round of the finish. Nice caramel like flavor throughout as well. Kind of a stand out scotch ale for me. Very tasty and drinkable. Good beer here.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle. Pours a mostly clear darker amber color with a somewhat thick light tan head on it. Nose is light but malty, with some subtle bread notes in there, and just a bit of leather. Taste is lightly bitter up front, but has just a hint of sweetness to mellow it out.
