3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
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

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

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.

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
A-pours a clear ruby red color with orange edges, a white head with little retention and no lace.
S-the nose is light, toasted bread, a touch of grain, sweet caramel, herbal hops in the back.
T-a toasted breadiness right up front, slightly grainy with notes of toffee in the middle. some sweet dark fruits blend in at the back with notes of tropical fruity hops to finish off.
M-very light body but smooth on the palate, good carbonation to hold the feel throughout and a clean soft finish.
D-easy drinking and tasty, nothing huge but a good balance and flavor profile.

Can: brown with a tan head. This is an awful example of a Scottish ale. This is crap and tastes like a dark lager essentially. Meh.

3.4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
16 ounce can. Served in a nonic pint glass, the beer pours a clear copper/brown color with a half inch off-white head that went away quickly. Thereís a small amount of lacing left behind on the glass. The brew smells like toffee, nuts, and toasted malt. It tastes like toffee, nuts, peat, and caramel/toasted malt. Mouthfeel/body is low/medium, itís smooth and has moderate carbonation. It is pretty easy to drink. At $11.49 a 4-pack I wouldnít buy it again at that price, but I do think itís a brew thatís worth trying.

3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
From the can, dark amber/copper pour, aroma is minor peat with lots of malts, taste is very similar with a little maple. Good, but not great.

2.2 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
Can. Pours clear brown with off-white head. Smells nutty. Tastes very nutty, slight chocolate, boring. A bit flat, light bodied, lacking flavor and anything remotely exciting. Not worth a dump in the sink, but not worth getting.
