3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Live review poured into my pint glass.
A- Body is a transparent mahogany color that pours with a 2-3 finger soapy white head. Head subsides quickly to 1/2 finger-but has great retention from there. Some lacing is left behind in the glass. Bubbles can be seen steadily rising to the top.
S-Nose is moderate in strength and offers a lot of caramel malt as well as some chocolate an toffee.
T-Flavor is much lighter than the smell and offers a decent earthy hop profile in addition to a mild caramel and chocolate malt presence. What lingers on the palate is some earthy hop flavor as well as a hint of caramel, toffee, and chocolate malt.
P- Medium to high tingly carbonation and a very light, thin body.
O- This is a decent, above average Scottish Ale. Its very light, sessionable and drinkable. Also seems to be an interesting, somewhat unique brew. Its nice to sample someone else’s locals occasionally and I’d like to trade for more local growlers.
Serving type: growler

2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 10/20
Pours an earthy brown with off white head. Nose and taste is mellow, unassuming, notes of dark malts, caramel and chocolate. A bit muted. This is not a big beer in ABV or flavor. Worth picking up if you come across it, but not a must try.

Like their Sunlight Cream Ale, this beer just doesn’t bring a lot to the table. However, the light brown body and small pale white head offers a decent nose and taste. Touches of caramel and oats splash on the tongue with a light to medium body. While Wee Mac is one of their better beers, I can think of over a handful of Scotch ales that put this to shame. Its just a Wee bit off.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 10/20
Pours a need ruby, nice head that dissolves pretty quickly, aroma is weak, taste is weak, not sweet, a little malt bitterness. But I like the can.

3.6 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
UPDATED: AUG 11, 2010 Another great offering by Sun King. Pours a light brown color with lots of amber. Just a hint of a head, and minimal lacing. Aroma is full of malts, toasted nuts, and a hint of warm chai. Flavor is incredibly balanced between the malt and the roasted nuts. Hints of yeast and caramel. Slight candy in the finish. Really good and sessionable.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
16 oz. can. Dark, coppery brown color with a foamy two-finger light tan head. Aroma is creamy malt and lightly roasted coffee. Taste is creamy, roasted malt and a hint of vanilla toffee. On the low end of medium bodied and not a very pronounced finish. A bit more like a brown ale than a Scottish but still a good beer, just a bit off for the style.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
On tap. Pours a deep amber brown with a fluffy, creamy beige head. Nose is dark caramel and earthy, grassy hops, with a slight peated note. Taste is tingly bitter with some stronger sweetness appearing underneath there. Palate is bright, lighter, active, and refreshing. Not heavy at all. Nice flavor profile, very easy to drink, and great for pub food. I liked it.

Tall boy can. Maple ruby pour decent head not a lick of retention. If Scottish Ales are Wee Heavy Lights then this is a Scottish Ale Light. Light on peat, malt, and caramel but still tastes pretty good.

16 oz can from Sherm1016....Thanks. Pours a fairly clear brown....minor head that quickly departs...no lacing. Malty nose and mild taste. Nothing negative...just not much notable....good smooth session-able beer...but there are better ones out there.
