COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
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.

Very differnt. A yeasty but yet very malty beer. The malts are very chewy yet it has a light mouth feel. I love the fact that this beer runs at 8%, and hides it very well.

Suttree (5050) - Knoxville, Tennessee, USA - NOV 16, 2003
How do you pass up a beer with "Silly" right there on the label? You don't, thats how. Clear brown, tan head. butterscotch, grain, and caramel aroma. sweet, big malty flavors upfront, then a herbal peppery flavor. Finish is comparatively weak and watery, but still a nice beer.

bierkoning (9999) - La Tropica, NETHERLANDS - NOV 16, 2003
Hoppy, earthy aroma. Creamy off-white head. Sweet and hoppy with licorice, caramel and butterscotch. Some metal and peach. Too sweet to be a really good beer, but has some complexity.

Cobra (1100) - Banned City, - NOV 10, 2003
11.2 oz. brown longneck bottle. No freshness date seen. Poured out a cloudy, murky darker shade of brown, with a fast fading tan head. Aromas of malts, mostly. Some fruitiness noticed, but not much in the hops department. Tasted smooth, with a silky, rich mouthfeel. Sweet caramel malts blend with the hops in a most unusual way. Very tasty, as far as beers go. Strong malt backbone literally smothers any hops trying to make it through. Finished sweet, and smooth.

maltdog (616) - Colorado, USA - OCT 24, 2003
Slightly murky, ruby-tinged, deep deep copper color. Fantastic, eternal, fluffy beige head clings to the glass. Aroma screams Twinkies! and (tropical?) fruit. Surprising juicy nectarine flavors, along with candy corn, bubble gum, vanilla, and a hint of road tar. Mouthfeel starts quite thick, is cleansed by bubbles, ending up tingly and resiny. Interesting finish- lingering fruit (plum and something else?), sorghum, slight oiliness and earthy bitterness. I'll be buying more tomorrow.

Caramel, dark fruit aroma.Chestnut appearance.Sweetish fruity raisin cherry caramel flavors with very mild hop finish.

larsniclas (5556) - Billdal, SWEDEN - SEP 29, 2003
Sampled draught at The Rover, Gothenburg. Dark brown. Aroma from a medicine-cabinet. Early, sweet bitterness. Let me quote Maria: Like a stupind blond! Sweet and uninteresting. Never went to kindergarten.

rickgordon (3843) - Göteborg, SWEDEN - SEP 28, 2003
Sampled draught at The Rover, Göteborg, Sweden. Chestnut colour, off-white head. Rich yeasty aroma and flavour. Clear prune flavour, kind of sweetish with notes of tit bits. Long aftertaste.

JoeM500 (1902) - Crown Point, Indiana, USA - SEP 21, 2003
A really nice scotch ale, very lively and fresh tasting from the bottle. Peated malts are nice and there is an unusually high amount of biscuity yeast flavor in the finish. Yum.

Lively mouthfeel. Really bubbly. Didn't notice the alcohol. Some spiced malt flavors. Just liked the feel.
