hopscotch (9064) - Vero Beach, Florida, USA - FEB 12, 2004
Crystal clear, deep mahogany ale with a light brown head. Poor retention. Decent lacing. The nose is of beef broth, smoke and port with a hint of bacon grease. Medium-bodied with an oily mouthfeel and medium carbonation. Astringent, bone-dry finish.

Deep reddish-brown color. Tan head that quickly faded. Complex malt aroma. Pleasant flavor that made it very drinkable.

Best before 5/20/04 bottle.Tastes like their snowcap ale.No discernable scottish ale qualities that I could detect.Just some kind of artificial flavor that was in the snow cap ale(maybe in the rest of their beers too.Sellouts.I heard this used to be good.Nice color/decent head blah

Murphy (1759) - Fort Collins, Colorado, USA - FEB 1, 2004
Dark mahongany color, no head. Sweet aroma. Taste is bubblegummy and sweet, with a mildly tart finish. Really not bad for a Scottish Ale, and certainly a better offering from a brewer that usually doesn't have much going on.

Alcoholist (570) - Peoria, Illinois, USA - JAN 20, 2004
Rich brown color, thin creamy head. Very complex malty flavor with a touch of hopps. Full bodied, good carbonation.

SubstanceT (1092) - Saint Louis, Missouri, USA - JAN 16, 2004
This average on this is way too low. Dark brown in colour with a thin frothy head with excellent lacing on the glass. The nose is heavy with a very malty and caramelish feel. The taste is sweet with very present roasted malts. The body is full and very filling.

Came in the short-neck brown 12 oz bottle, with the usual Pyramid label framed in red tartan Pours a nice dark amber/red into the glass, atop the beer sits a nice sized creamy head, which dissapates to leave a good laceing down the glass..very attractive beer. The aroma is a little subdued, but I can make out the roasted barley malt, sweet and chocolaty. A nice dark unsweetened chocolate malt flavour. Also a dry peaty taste is discernable..very good! Later in the gulp a smoky aftertatse makes its appearance.. I like this beer. Feels very smooth on the tongue nice finish to this beer. I liked this beer, its pretty drinkable a nice spring seasonal from Pyramid.

hotstuff (4069) - Indiana, USA - NOV 3, 2003
When poured, this beer had a small sized tan head with fine-small sized bubbles that fully dissipated.The body was hazy with carbonation observed and a reddish-brown hue.The nose was that of malt and caramel and the flavor was malty and a hint of caramel.The mouthfeel was slightly tingly/bubbly and medium bodied.The lacing was very sparse.

thedm (4935) - Fort Wayne, USA - NOV 2, 2003
This brew poured a small head of fine to medium sized light brown colored mostly diminishing bubbles that left behind a softly carbonated hazy dark brown colored body and a fair lacing. The aroma is nice with notes caramel malt and roasted nuts. THe mouthfeel is different with an initial bubble feeling then smooothing in the finish. There is something a bit off in the flavor of this ale. I am not sure how to describe it. There is mild caramel, malt spiceyness and something either more acidic or at best unnatural about it.

Indra (2606) - Overland Park, Kansas, USA - SEP 20, 2003
Sweet, malty aroma, just a hint of the peat, some caramel/toffee and dark fruitiness. Deep garnet in color, with a subsiding head. Malty, fruity, sugary flavor, some breadiness and caramel and having a mildly earthy, bittersweet finish that is briefly reminiscent of apple butter. I believe the hop presence may have faded somewhat in the months since it's release. Nevertheless, if they were going for something along the lines of McEwan's Scotch, they certainly succeeded. It's practically a clone.
