2.2 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 9/20
Bottled. Mahogany colour, no head. Aroma of green apples. Sweet and very woody. Syrupy, clean, mouthfeel. Malty but mellow. The woodiness is nice, but it’s extremely one dimensional. There’s nothing under this kilt.

2.6 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Cloudy deep brown/mahogany with a small tan head. Smell: caramels, sour milk, black cherry. Nothing special, or overly appealing. Taste: earthy and dirty, slightly unsweetened black cherry, bitter, and smokey, with a dry finish. Not really great, but drinkable.

Aroma is fruty, with lavender, grape, cherry notes, malty and a little sweet. Flavor is malty, with a bit of smokeyness, sweet, with caramel, maple. Smooth dry finish. A very nice brew. It won't amaze you, but it's a solid brew and one of the better scottish ales I've had.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Deep mahogony, with a thin fizzy biege head. Aroma is sweet and earthy. Smokey malts on the tongue, along with wood, hops, and earth. Overall it's a rather bland and boring beer. It's kind of fishy. There's nothing that really defines this beer. It's just very blah.

Have often felt this is one of the better beers from Pyramid. Has good flavor. Certainly more impressive beers out there, but this is still a very drinkable beer.

Nice dark brown color with a small head. There is an earthy aroma with hints of herbs or spices. Roasted malts and a fairly dry taste with only a hint of a hop presance are noticable.
