3.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Quite the drinkable beer, but nothing to shout about. Just an unassuming, well made tasty beer. Aroma is malty sweet, slightly roasted, a little caramel...very nice! Appearance is a dark amber color, decent head and lacing. Mouthfeel was a little thick which I didnít care for too much, but it wasnít anything horrible. Flavors were a little earthy, sweet, slightly roasted (again) and perhaps a tiny bit in the smoke department. Overall an average brew but for less than $4 for a sixer you get excellent beer for what you pay for. Another good beer from Pyramid.

A weak scottish ale. Pours a red/brown color. Sweet malt flavor with very light chocolate and wood notes. Not one of my favorites.

Pours a deep reddish brown color. Aromas of wood smoke and some chocolate/coffee. Flavor is big dark malt, some nice hop, and a touch of nut.

well, my friend in everett seattle had this in his fridge, said its been there for a year or so...of course i indulged him to íget rid of ití/. dark malty flavors of warm alcohol and cocoa beans and toffee candy. a bit syrupy and flat. probably due to the age, this one was over the hill.

This bad boy will definately tilt your kilt. On tap this can be a damaging beer. Puts you on your hind end easy.

11.10.03 12oz bottle. Hey Iíve got papers due and I canít sleep and this seemed like the right beer to get me there. Well, I had no idea it would bore me to sleep. Dark reddish gold with big foamy head. Obviously sticky malts as the head itself laces down the glass. the beer smells sweet and earthy but not so much peaty. Some bakers chocolate, more dirt, apple pie, smokey peat. Not at all exciting, and at times cloyingly sweet. Still, as with so many Pyramis brews, you canít beat the variety:dollar ratio which helps make this a winner.

After reading the other reviews- Iím not sure if I got a bad batch or what. Overriding cirtus tastes- could have been a cider or a chandy or something. Just tasted another and theyíre distinctly different. This oneís got less citrus and more typical Scot ale. Hard to rate based on inconsisentcy and crazy flavors....

Dark brown/red color with a light tan head that greets your pour, then goes away, leaving a lacy ring aroung the sides of your glass. Nice full, malty flavor that I look for in a Scottish ale. Could have been stronger. A slightly bitter finish, which is good.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Big, creamy tan head, nearly black in appearance, looking closer to a stout than other scotch ales Iíve encountered. Sweet toffee notes in the nose, cream, butterscotch. Soft texture, high carbonation, slightly bitter, solid malt, and excellent integration. Lots of play on the tongue here, utterly delicious and satisfactory.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Dark brown/ruby colour. Aroma: Sweet malty, barley wine-like, a little buttery and cheesy with smallish chocolate notes. Flavour: Woody, just like I know Scottish Ales with a little milk chocolate, and quite tasty. Clean mouthfeel.
