3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle... Pours murky and brown with a tiny, creamy, mushroom-colored head. Decent retention. The aroma offers a dab of milk chocolate with some nice toastiness and nuttiness as well. Light to medium-bodied with tingly carbonation. The flavor is sweet, toasty and a little chocolaty with a fortified wine note, but not much else. Didn’t expect much. Didn’t get much. Bottle courtesy of BBB63!

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. I’m not sure if I’d call this an amber ale or a Scottish ale, but it was worth a try.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
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.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
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.

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.

2.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
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.
