16oz can. Pours a dark copper/brown color with a thick fluffy tan head. Aroma of roasted malts and toffee. Taste of light roasted malts, toffee, light citrus, and some sourness in the finish.

Can. Pours a deep brown color with a nice head that fades. More of an amber brown ale then a scotch. Booze and flavor isn't there

Growler share at DLD - nose and sip remind me more of a brown ale. It was kind of flat but a nice change of pace from BA stouts.

Can. Pours clear brown with a small off white head that quickly dissipates The aroma has light caramel but is far from diverse or complex. The taste is sweet caramel, very basic.

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.

Right down the middle Scottish to me. Pours a dark orange. Malt is everywhere you look. Roasted notes predominate here.

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.

Pretty weak Scottish ale. Muted aromas... Some peat and sweet malt. Flavors are a bit of caramel and banana. Thin and watery.
