3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
650ml bottle pours a pale amber color with a finger of white head that settles down to reveal a few spots of lacing. Aroma is light fruits and malts with some hints of pine and citrus. Taste is quite sweet for a scotch style ale with only mild pine and citrus bitterness and none of the peatiness that I have come to expect from a scotch ale. Also, lighter in body for the style. A decent tasting brew, but does not represent the style well.

2 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
pours a clear amber with a very small white head that goes away qucikly and no lacing.
smell is faint, some caramel, some malt, and a tad bit of roastiness.
taste is thick, butterscotch, malt, caramel, earthy, and a few hops. ends a little bitter and a little dry.
overall not that impressive.

Pours clear copper with white head. Grain and malt, maybe a hint of smoke. Needs a bit more substance.

I honestly do not know how professional brewers dare to put their name on beers like this, much less call it a certain style. This beer is thin, smells like straw, tastes worse, and has no redeeming features.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle… Clear dirty-orange ale with a small, creamy, off-white head. Great retention. The aroma is a toasty, malty blend of roasted barley and rich, buttery toffee. Medium-bodied with a milky mouthfeel and tingly carbonation. The perfectly-balanced flavor offers moderately roasted caramel malts and faint acidity. Crisp, clean finish. Not exciting, but very drinkable.
