Decent smell, hits the nose sour. Very nice color but a little to opaque for my preference. Nothing spectacular about the taste or texture, but nothing very unpleasant either. Not a bad beer but not great either.

Ambrée foncée avec une petite mousse blanche. L’arome de malt et scotch. Le gout et légèrement sucré et du scotch. C’est pas aqueux, mais je trouve qu’il manque un peu du corps.

I love this reddish delightful beer. It is easy to drink, slightly malty sweet at the end and finishes without any horrible bitter hoppiness.

Pours amber-brown with a small white head that dissipates quickly. Aroma is caramelized malts. Taste is identical to aroma with a very light bitter finish. This beer is earthy and comfortable.

2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
22 oz. bottle. English pint shows a dirty, light amber color with low carbonation giving almost no head. Nose is mild peat and malt. Taste is light malt sweetness with a bit of touch of peat flavor and a grassy, Earthy hop. Something is not quite balanced with this brew. Thin body with an oily texture. I don’t really enjoy the hop and malt mixture here. Nothing real horrible about it; just not my thing.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Tap at Pike Pub & Brewery, Seattle - 09/11/12.
Clear mid amber with a thin off white head that clears to the edge and forms a small pond.
Nose is light caramel, ribena, smoke, dark malts.
Taste is malt forward, incorporates light wood tones, toffee, dark sugars, puff of smoke.
Medium bodied with light prickly carbonation.
Drinkable for a style that doesn’t exist with a comedic (not) Scottish name! Would I order it again - nah!
