2.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Draft at Rich Os. Light brown body with a fizzy, off-white head, rapidly diminishing. Raw grain aroma with notes of caramel, roast and toasted grain. The flavor is moderately sweet and lightly bitter. It finishes lightly to moderately sweet and lightly to moderately bitter. Medium body, watery texture and moderate carbonation. A sight tartness in the finish, along with some vinegary notes. Flabby, unclean malts. Lacking the richness of a Scottish ale. Disappointing.

Poured from 16oz can, pours a clear light brownish red with a thin white head and no lacing, the aroma is very sweet with a hint of scotch, the front end of the flavor is strong in the malt with some caramel in the finish, very sweet but it works for this one, nice.

Scottish style brown ale my butt. Straight up malt liquor is more like it. But a good one. Heavy corn flavors. Dusty hops. Oxidized malts with bits of paper, metallic, medium caramels. Light lemon tang. The texture is well done -- effervescent and lightly creamy. No fusels nor apparent alcohol. Weird but solid.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
Received in trade from phisigben, thanks for the opportunity!
Pours a crystal clear solid copper brown color with a good sized creamy white head that slowly dissipates, but leaves some spotty lace in its wake. Now this beer is still quite cold, freshly poured after coming out of the "regular" refrigerator, but most of what I’m getting from the aroma is an almost tart fruitiness. As this warms it opens up a little and I get more malt with sweet caramel and toffee, bread, and hints of dark fruit. Taste is mild toffee and caramel up front followed by some tart and dark fruits for the dry finish. Medium body with a moderate level of carbonation and a slick sugary mouthfeel. This one is a bit weird. There’s a tart almost metallic thing going on the aroma. The body is a bit to thin for the style and the flavor should have more rich caramel/burnt sugar maltiness in it, but it doesn’t. This one kind of falls short of expectations.

Draft in the tasting room. Pours a light apple cider brown bolor with a smidge of head. Big dry malty nose with a roasted nut character. Big toasted malt and toffee with plenty of nutty character in the finish. Medium body and dry. Tastey

Pours a dark reddish-brown that some light gets through. Malty sweetness on the nose and in the flavor. Some subtle roastiness in the finish. Very easy to drink and pretty tasty.

Tap at Scottys on January 17, 2012. Translucent light brown with some head and spotty lacing. Aroma was mainly malty caramel but had some chocolate. Taste was similar to aroma but was mild and maybe a slight dry finish.
