It offers a finely wooded nose hinting at hazelnut, and is therefore distinct from traditional British scotches. It has a more rounded taste letting a discreetly full-bodied bitterness come to the fore, and will naturally seduce you.
Ingredients: Water, pale ale malt, caramel malt, aromatic malt, sugar, yeast, Kent hop, hallertau hop.

Mainuh_man (258) - NETHERLANDS - OCT 29, 2014
0.33L bottle. Pours clear red-brown with a frothy, off-white head. Rich malt aromas: carmel, butterscotch, bread, some bubblegum. Flavor is quite sweet, with lots of caramel and tpbacco. Balances well in the middle and end with herby and resiny hop. Full body with a thick mouthfeel and mild carbonation. Overall, really nice malt character on this beer. A bit sweet, but delicious nonetheless.

mine was so cloudy you couldn’t see any light through it...more like an unfiltered apple cider. the smell was nice and sweet, an so was the taste, but i didn’t get any peat malt aspects. outside of the sweetness (which i liked), there was a heavy coppery taste and a slightly astringent finish. I don’t know if i got a bottle past it’s peak, but i won’t be back."

Silly is one of the last breweries in Belgium which still brews an old school Scotch (a genre once more popular in Belgium than in Scotland but now usually considered obsolete) ànd dares to effectively call it that, as it is my theory that Belgium still has dozens of Scotch beers ’in disguise’, not in the least many of the Christmas ales. This one has a pretty bronze colour under a light beige head and a very malty aroma, caramelly and nutty, with brown sugar, raisins, chocolate, estery fruitiness and liquorice, and a gentle roasted bitterness in the finish. I enjoyed this a lot and consider it a classic in its style - at least of the ones which are actually still called ’Scotch’, and those can be counted on the fingers of one hand.

Mooi robijnrood. Zoete geur en smaak, erg fruitig. Wel lekker, maar met sterke nasmaak. Grappige combi.

Alusmamuts (829) - LATVIA - OCT 5, 2014
Brown with medium light brown head. Sweet and bitter taste, easy drinkable, some sourness in the tongue tip.

Excalibur123 (250) - Soria, SPAIN - SEP 29, 2014
Vierte color ámbar claro con media cabeza de espuma beige de retención baja; se aprecian aromas a caramelo, albaricoque y dátiles, en boca la entrada es suave y maltosa con notas picantes y azúcar candy, pos gusto largo y dulce, cuerpo y carbónico medios; una cerveza compleja e interesante fácil de beber y con el alcohol bien integrado.

Vighals (1806) - Sørumsand, NORWAY - SEP 29, 2014
Mørk brun noe uklar med lavt beige skum. Lukter malt og brunt sukker. Smaker søtt av brendt sukke, med lett bitterhet i avslutningen.
