COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
The Great Scot! is characterized by its dark copper color, thick tan head, and slight malty sweet aroma. Our Scottish is a medium bodied malt forward beer with low bitterness and possesses a nutty, soft and chewy character in flavor and mouthfeel. A slight peaty/smoky characteristic is also present at low levels, but ultimately, this is a clean beer that finishes relatively dry. Melissa’s Peticolas’s favorite!

Bottle. This beer pours a fairly dark brown color that turns a rich shade of ruby when put to the light. A tall head of light tan forms atop the beer as well. Very pretty. The aroma on this was a little weak. Grainy and dusty smelling with perhaps a latent sweetness. The flavor however is much better than the aroma. Lots of lovely sweet notes and caramel malts come through. It is a smooth and slick sweetness that blends well with the surrounding grains and malts. Light bitterness on the finish with just the slightest amount of tingle over the palate. While I’ll admit I wasn’t much into the aroma, the flavor really came through in a big way. Very tasty. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

I’ve been looking for a good Scottish Ale for years it seems. This one very drinkable. Color right to style, very low carbonation, good. Flavor is nicely balanced malt-hops-peaty-smoke... they got that right. Only negative may be the water... hence the dissappearing act of any lacing. Other than that, perfectly drinkable and a pleasing mouthy finish. Very drinkable compared to a lot of Scottish ales where you may need a roaring fire and a view of some kind of slope ((; / yah maan.

Pours a nice dark orange color with off-white head. Sweetness, roasted malt, nuts, and caramel on the nose; follows onto the palate. Very nice scotch ale.

Ferris (5009) - Burnaby, British Columbia, CANADA - APR 18, 2014
Draft - Sweet grains and a bit of caramel. Deep amber with a thin beige head. Bit of grains and caramel, nothing fancy and a bit of whiskey sweet finish. Nice and simply well done.

on draft at Holy Grail; really starting to like this style and Peticolas is always solid. aroma of malt, slight smoke, caramel. dark copper pour. Flavor like aroma - sweet but not cloying; there was also a stickiness at end that was great but not sure of flavor. niiiiiiiiice.

Rated at BTBF 2012 (Backlog). Hazy brown with a decent sized beige head. Aroma is of peat, light fudge, caramel. Taste is of toffee, caramel, peat, and smoked pecan shells.

onceblind (4670) - Denver, Colorado, USA - NOV 26, 2013
Clear dark ruby brown with a foamy light beige head. The aroma is dark and malty with an earthy caratoffee aroma and a bit of leafy peat. The flavor is rich and dark with a sweet raisin and earthy toffee flavor, a wee bit peaty and earthy overall. Pretty fine scotch ale.

Decent Scottish ale. Nice sweet malty aroma. Dark brown color with a nice white head with some lacing. Medium weight palate with low carbonation. Full mouth feel. Flavors are heavy malt with some acidic sweetness. Very little hops. Good offering.

Tap at BTBF. Dark brown pour with creamy khaki head. Nose is caramel, plums, leather. Flavor is malty, caramel, plums, leather. Would like some smoked malts to counterbalance the sweetness. Syrupy mouthfeel.

From a growler filled at Tap and Growler. Very good, not great, beer from one of Dallas's great new breweries. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
