3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
6 oz. from a pint can; from Keg Liquors (Clarksville). Aroma: Moderate almonds; moderate toast; a touch of tootsie roll. Appearance: Copper brown with soft carbonation holding up a scant tan head. Flavor: Combined malt notes with more chocolate for the duration; a light leaf tobacco hop presence comes out near the finish, which is semi-dry. Palate: Medium body, creamy texture, soft carbonation, abrupt finish. Overall: Nice beer, and close enough to session strength to enjoy a few.

1.1 AROMA 2/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 2/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 2/20
This is weak sauce. Reminds me of home brew made with canned malt. Flat head, sweet malt, weak body. Nothing Scottish about it.

Aroma is malty beer, but nothing that reminds me of Scotch Ale. Flavor does deliver a little in that way. Body, despite being malty, is still a touch thin. An ok beer. Iíll enjoy this one, but not get another.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Poured into a snifter.
3.25 A: Clear deep amber light brown color. One and a half fingers of nitro-esque beige head. Retention is below average and no lacing is left.
3.75 S: Nutty and toasty from the start like a good brown ale. Caramel and brown sugar. Crisp, clean maltiness. On the drier side, but still enough sweetness to hit the spot.
3.75 T: Like the nose this is crisp, clean, and tasty. Plenty of toastiness and caramel. Nuttiness underneath, dry grainy maltiness. Not as rich or as sweet as most of the style out there, but I donít think itís supposed to be. It works quite well for what it is.
3.75 M: Lighter medium body. Good moderate carbonation. Lightly creamy and super smooth.
4.0 D: Super drinkable with a good taste.

Pint can shared poured a light clear brown color with tan head. No lacing to speak of, the aroma is caramel malts with hints of chocolate malts slightly sweet malts. The flavor brings more of the same with the caramel and chocolate malts being predominate. Slightly sweet malts mild to medium body easy to drink.

Can, straight from the can. If this beer was green Iíd have no idea. I assume its normal appearance so I gave it a 3 for that. Aroma is caramel malts, sugar/sweet with a hint of chocolate. Quite nice actually. Thats a 7. Beer is sweet, malty, no hops. Caramel/chocolate undertones. Pretty nice, smooth and easy drinker. Nothing spectacular. Probably a 6.5. I gave it a 6. Palate? I donít have a fucking palate. Its easy to drink. 3. No idea how this is rated so poorly. Its not great but its certain pretty good, especially for the style. 3.4-3.6

Comes reddish brown with a small tan head. Mild aroma of malt, fruit, and caramel. Taste is similar. Somewhat sweet, but very drinkable. Too much like a brown ale. 1/15
