COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
The colour of burnished copper, strong with a caramely sweetness. A malt driven beer, lightly balanced with our own Goldings and Willamette fresh hop flowers. The grain make up in this beer is a tightly kept secret. It has taken 7 years to perfect and is a very special blend of English Malts, some of which are dark roasted to impart the toffee and sweet flavours of this ale.

omhper (19447) - Tyresö, SWEDEN - FEB 6, 2006
Bottled. Clear nut brown. Flowey nose. Sweet and soapy with medium boody and notes of molasses. I found the malt profile to be bold and simplistic, and there was not much hops to cover it up.

harrisoni (13793) - Ashford, Kent, ENGLAND - JAN 12, 2010
Bottle at the Chriso Gaylord tasting 09. Russet colour, haze, lasting beige head. So what is it that makes this a Scotch Ale? Not much hop presence, some toffee malt. What is it? Sweetish toffee is the overall impression.

MesandSim (7119) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - JAN 14, 2010
A Mes rate. Bottle at Chris O’s Night of the Gaylords.
Dark dirty brown with a thin off white head. Sharp fruity malt and hints of alcohol. Faint burnt plastic notes. Earthy finish and that’s about it. Very one dimensional and under hopped.

mkel07 (3446) - Brisbane, AUSTRALIA - JUN 18, 2010
330ml bottle. Creamy latte coloured crown of foam. Deep brown in colour and appears solid and inviting in the glass. Strong biscuity malty aromas with a hint of caramel. Well balanced flavour that is very tasty. A little thin in the body when you drink it but this does nothing to detract from the overall enjoyment you get when you drink this.
