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.

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 Iíve 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 (606) - 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 arenít well pronounced. Just sort of there and not much else. Little to no lacing. Medium carbonation. Thin-bodied mouth feel.

Bottle. Pours a dark copper. Malty with not much else. Pretty average beer.

12oz bottle. Clear dark red / slightly brown color. Little bubbly off-white carbonation, not much lace. Medium body. Lighter carbonation, but with a bit of a pronounced texture. Nice caramel nose, toasty malts, some light smokiness. Light bitter taste, light sweet. An alright scotch ale, really. Just not too much complexity or character.

Bottle at Amp 150. Brownish orange pour with a sizable head. Mild caramel malt, slightly earthy. Okay brew.

Fritz123 (783) - Boca Raton, Florida, USA - JAN 13, 2013
12 oz bottle. Poured a orange, light brown color with modest head. Aroma was sweet with the hint of scotch flavors and malt. I was kind of disappointed with the actually taste. I found it too sweet and malty for my tastes. A little roasted barley. Not my favorite scotch ale.

12 oz. Bottle. A so-so brew. Brown toffee scent with some hoppy bitterness. Huge bubbly explosion of a pour, bronze color. Way too bubbly feel. Brown, toffee flavor to bitter.
