Nice mild malt aroma, clear copper color with decent head retention. The beer had a smooth mild malt flavor with a very slight hint of smoke. I would like to see more malt and some more smokey flavor. Not a bad beer but it could be better.

2.2 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
This beer pours a golden color with a small head that dissipates quickly. The aroma is dominated by sweet malts. The taste is sweet malts and that's pretty much all there is to it. I didn't care much for this beer because I'm not a fan of the single malt beers.

Not very good for a Scottish ale but decent anyway. Sweeter malt aroma. Malty and kind of smoky flavor. Medium body. OK

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Pours a dark golden caramel color with an almost flat apperance, next to no head and minimal lace. Aroma is sweet toasted malt with faint hints of butterscotch, vanilla, and caramel. Flavors are a little bland and very light. Palate is slightly sticky with a mild astringentcy and a faint lingering bitterness.

1.8 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 1/20
Dark amber. No head. Looks exactly like whisky in the glass.Smell is caramel malt, vanilla and whisky. Taste is whisky and honey with a bare hint of hops. Glad this isn't available in sixers; one is more than enough for me.

Not a bad beer at all. Sweet malty taste, that ends pretty mucht the same as it began. Leaves a gentle honey taste on the tongue, with almost no hop presence to speak of. Very mild and unoffensive.

Has a clear, golden-red appearence with a large white head. The taste is a bit weak and has a hint of honey within. I don't like this style of beer, but Saranac does a decent job at it.

3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Pale bright copper with med bubbly head. Nearly the color of scotch whiskey. Light malt aroma, hint of apricot, plus herbal hops. Nicely balanced presentation, with a rounded honeyish malt profile with the herbal notes of Fuggles hops.

Bottle. Good, sweet and drinkable. If you're searching for hops, search somewhere else.
