COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
A smooth malty offering, amber in color, and low on hop bitterness. Beltaine is a festival held every spring with patrons running throught fire and taking some embers home for the hearth.

Draft to taster at Shoreline. Looks good for the style; a hazy deep amber with light caramel head. Smells semi-sweet and malty with notes of caramel. Tastes like it smells with a fairly smooth mouthfeel. A solid example of the style.

Reddish brown with white Gead at the shoreline brewery. Carmel and malty flavor. Plum and raisin. Pretty good. My favorite of their beers so far

22 oz. bottle from brewery pours a cloudy brown with small tan head and a bit of lacing. Aroma is all malts and something earthy like mushrooms. Taste is slightly sweet with a dry, hoppy finish. Body is medium to light with average carbonation. Im not sure if Id call this an amber ale or a Scottish ale, but it was worth a try.

ICEatALAMO (924) - Troy, Michigan, USA - AUG 12, 2013
Draft at brewery. The pour is a deep amber. The aroma is mostly malt. The taste is almost more of an amber than scotch in my mind. A little light on flavor. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Strykzone (4911) - Wood River, Illinois, USA - JUL 4, 2013
Sampled at the brewery. Clear amber. Lots of rich malts are smelled. Those are tasted, too. They are sweet and smooth. Grassy hops are fairly big. Earthiness. Grass. Roasted notes grow late and it thinned out.

Onslow (1151) - Kalamazoo, Michigan, USA - APR 28, 2013
Pour from a 22oz bomber. Cloudy brown brew with small late forming tan head. Aroma of malt, brown sugar, a little earth and ash. Taste is lighter sweet malt at the start with a modestly dry finish. Light body and thin palate. Enjoyable.

jcr (2198) - Jasper, Indiana, USA - APR 21, 2013
Bottle. Muddy brown body. Fizzy off-white head. Aroma of dirty peat, roasted malts, caramel. The flavor is moderately sweet and lightly bitter. It finishes lightly to moderately sweet and lightly bitter. Thin to medium body, watery texture, lively carbonation. Strong peat and smoke flavors, raw, leafy hops, but the flavors, what few are there, are muddled. Watery for the a Scottish ale. Slight metallic notes round out this forgettable beer.

Pours dark brown with a short tan head. Aroma is caramel, nuts... Flavour is caramel malt..very slight woody bitter. Mild, pleasant...nothing fancy, just good.
