On tap at brewery. Dark brown with a small off-white rocky head. Almost no lacing. Medium-bodied. Smoky, toffee, malty sweet, piney nose. Earthy yet crisp taste, good balance with just the right hint of smoke. Oily and soft mouthfeel. Dry finish. Recommended.

This is my first experience with this style so it should be interesting. Cloudy, light-amber body with creamy head that doesn't stick around very long. Good carbonation. Smells of sweet malt and toasted honey with slight traces of acidity (think vitamin C pill smell). Thin to medium viscousity in the mouth. Complex flavor consisting of light hops, caramel, roasted chocolate, fruits AND all are wrapped in big-time MALT. Average length aftertaste is of sweet malt, subtle hops and yeast. Not my favorite style but certainly not below average.

Well, it is hoppy for a Scottish but since I like the bitters it's fine by me. Nice Ruby red color. Substantial beige head w/lacing. A Scottish you can drink year round.

Smooth drinking. Carmely, malt aroma and flavor. Fairly tasty. As smoosh say, I'm also surprised not to be overwhelmed by hops coming from 3F.

Bottle - Malty! Something I thought I'd never say about a 3F beer. Light brown with a small beige head. Not like any of their others I've had, but pretty nice!

Slight bread aroma. Malty tasting beer with a roasted, slight smokey flavor. I didn't think I would like this beer, but it was a pleasant suprise.

Light ruby brown hue. Lightly smokey nose. Small sticky beige head. Very smooth. Medium bodied, great fruitiness, liight smoke in the background, and a hopped up finish. Very nicely done, I really enjoy this. These guys brew some hefty s***.

Draft - My first taste of this Brewer's beer and I really enjoyed it. Very full-bodied and malty. Finish is long and dry. I can't wait to try the rest of their beers.
