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.

A good anytime beer that has a basic barley flavor. I had it with nachos and it was fine.

Chudwick (2288) - Cincyucky, Kentucky, USA - JUN 13, 2012
12oz bottle - pours slightly murky amber with creamy off-white head. Nose is caramel, wood, brown sugar and a little smoke. Flavors adds a little chocolate and floral hops. Mainly sweet with a lingering bitterness. (really digging the new live Skinny Puppy album). Sticky palate. I like this beer, though I wish it were stronger.

Patrickctenchi (4449) - Coxs Knob, columbus, Indiana, USA - MAY 29, 2012
Pours tea-like with a quick off-white head that fades rapidly to a ring and an island. Scent is mild....toffee....dry hay/grass. Taste is very subtle..caramel/toffee without excess sweetness...grassy dryness..malt. Rather nice....smooth.

TURDFERGUSON (4004) - Durham, North Carolina, USA - MAY 20, 2012
Bottle. Glowing, mostly translucent amber. Nose is super bready, some caramel, pretty much spot on what I smell in many American made scotch ales. Some are smokey, this one is not. Flavor is caramel, light toffee, bread, and an earthy bitterness. Kinda watery palate. Kinda like a scotch ale on training wheels.

Quite malty and a sweet with caramel, nut, and a hint of cocoa. Smooth finish and full body, though not at all heavy. Very nice.

rondphoto (2545) - Lakeside Park, Kentucky, USA - MAR 15, 2012
Dark amber with an out-of-control head and spotty lace. The taste has sweet caramel malt with an odd overtone of pruney anise. The finish is hurt by a general lack of any bitterness. Not a very good brew, especially with so many Thirsty Dog winners to drink instead.

Ok beer. It was malty with caramel spice and earthiness. The aroma was slitly doughy.

JFGrind (1881) - Glenside, Pennsylvania, USA - FEB 18, 2012
Malty Ale that lacks the earthy peat flavor I enjoy in a Scottish Ale. The roasted malt and bitterness are no more than a whisper. Decent Buckeye State session beer.
