Draft at MacNiven’s.
Poured a clear brown color with an average frothy off-white head that mostly lasted with excellent lacing. Moderate toasted malt and earthy aroma. Medium body with a smooth texture and soft carbonation. Medium toasted sweet flavor with a medium sweet finish of moderate duration.
Smooth and drinkable beer that is more like a brown ale.

Copper pour. Aroma is so mild that I was barely able to smell anything other than a light caramel note. Funny the flavor is much the same. Cant say its offensive, but its not really much of anything.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
16 ounce can shared by BrewEngineer at Butters Slutfest 2.0, Richmond, VA, 4.23.11. Pours a clear medium brown color with a thin tan head. Fair head retention and lacing. Grainy aroma with a faint bit of caramel. The taste is caramel, grain and a cola-like note. Medium bodied. Not bad and fairly refreshing but weird for a Scottish ale.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Can… Clear, light copper ale with a large, frothy, off-white head. Good retention. Malty, nutty bouquet – toffee, cashews, pistachios, mild biscuit and cocoa with a hint of nickel. Medium-bodied with dancing carbonation. The flavor is a totally quaffable merger of Scotch ale and English brown ale – lightly sweet praline and caramel with kisses of chocolate and roasted tree nuts. Short, crisp, refreshing finish. Kudos to StFun for providing a very nice example of my favorite style of beer!

UPDATED: OCT 21, 2013 Can @ home. Pours a bit hazy, red orange appearance with a cream colored head. Sweet, toffee, caramel malty, slightly citrusy, sweet creamy aroma. Somewhat cloying, sweet caramel, toffee flavor. Seems a little unbalanced to me. Grassy. Kind of weird.

Sample at Ale Wine & Spirits in Powell on 04/27/2012. Deep mahogany color with a medium off-white head that evaporates steadily. Spotty lacing. Caramel malt and citrus in the nose. Light to medium body with a sweet malty character and flavors of caramel, fruit and slight hops. The finish is sweet with a caramel and toffee aftertaste. Pretty average overall.
