COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
This Scottish Style Export Ale gets its unique flavor and aroma through a special time consuming, extra long and vigorous boil. The caramelization blends perfectly with the malty flavor of roasted barley and complementing hops. Raise a glass of this very drinkable ale to ANY occasion.

Dark brown pour with a deep dark ruby cast. Fair head with little lacing. Light nose of sweet and toast malt. The body is light medium and the mouthfeel is smooth. Well carbonated. The flavor is rather subdued - not bad, just not much there. It has an underlying tartness against a weak malt background. The finish is crisp. Since TD doesn’t bottle date, this one may be old. I was expecting more than what was delivered.

Tap at the Ohio University Inn. Pours clear dark brown with ruby highlights and a medium, frothy off-white head, long retention with good lacing. Aroma is caramel and toffee malt, dates, light earthy hops and smoke. Flavor is malt dominant with dark fruits, light hops and bitterness with a sweet finish. Medium body and light carbonation.

Ehh. Good. No aroma. Nice red brown color. Taste isn't too unique and the palate isn't spectacular. Good session ale. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

BlackWarrior (203) - Spartanburg, South Carolina, USA - SEP 28, 2013
Pours mahogany, fairly clear and very little head. Aromas of toasted malts, caramel and some dark fruits. Mouth is smooth and bit low in carbonation, though whats there is crisp. Flavors are sweet caramel and roasted malts up front with a hint of candy apple and some earthiness. Overall decent brew. Improved carbonation might help.

quickly becoming one of my favorite styles - this was a solid representation of the style - nice aroma of caramel and maybe smoke? taste was caramel, malt and slight drying hop.

Draught. This is one of the worst scotch micro scotch ales I’ve ever had. Off the mark.

Amber colored beer with a quickly dissipating off white head. Big malty nose. Sweet caramel flavors with some light toast, earthiness, and some green hops in the finish. Not a bad beer but not much of a Scotch ale.

Chuckaduck (674) - Highland Heights, Kentucky, USA - APR 6, 2013
Bottle. 4/7/13. Pours translucent green-gold with a fluffy white head. Aroma is malty; bread, grass, caramel; not highly complex. Taste is earth, grass, spicy, bready, caramel; with a very subtle bitter coffee finish. Not bad; somewhat plain. The aromas and flavors aren’t well pronounced. Just sort of there and not much else. Little to no lacing. Medium carbonation. Thin-bodied mouth feel.
