3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
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.

Nice sweet malty aroma, head was not really a factor, it was gone so fast. Nice malty flavor with very little notice of hops. Smooth drinking spring ale that is easy to drink.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Aroma is of medium strength, pleasent with hints of plums and hops, and quite sharp. This beer poured a dark brown with slight red hue. Taste is spicy and hoppy, with undertones of caramel syrup. Medium body, right amount of carbonation. Finish is mild.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
A nice, deep ruby color and decent head start this one. Aroma doesn't quite measure up to the color, and seems a little weak for a scots ale. The flavor is alright and seems to last a very long time. A decent effort from Pyramid.
