All I have to say is WOW! If I was wearing a kilt, it sure would have tilted mine. An excelent beer. Too bad I can’t pick this one up locally or I would make it a regular purchase.

I have eyed this scottish ale on shelves for some time, but wanted to wait until I had it on draught at the brewery. With my wait finally over, this beer did not dissapoint. Rich ruby amber in color and wafting up a warm whiskey aroma this beer lured me in for a closer inspection. Distinct whiskey element nicely rounds the flavor. This scottish ale succeeds in being full, without being rich--as far as malting is concerned. The malting blends with the product so well that it becomes undetectable--no flavor spike whatsoever--and exceptionally well balanced beer--though it does have a dry note mixed in with it. Expertly balanced with the whiskey flavor becoming even more apparent as the beer warms.

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

This stuff looked and tasted like a porter. I thought it was pretty damn good. I would definitely drink this again given the chance. Pyramid makes good beers.
