COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
A bold Scottish ale with a complex malty body derived from roasted and crystal malts balanced with just the right combination of hops. This ale pours a deep ruby color, has a sweet malty nose with layered caramel and roasted notes and a full body. Robust yet smooth, Robert The Bruce is a malt loverís delight.

Why is this not rated higher? Could it be the lower scores are from lads and lassies who just cannaí stand up to a huge caber toss of taste?! Itís musky, itís fruity, itís sweet, bitter, tart, and tangy! And itís bitter and sweet and musky again and tart and tangy again! A real highland fling (and could cause you to reel, if youíre not careful of the alchohol content). If youíre looking for ímellowí ...this is not the idea Iím trying to convey here.

This is the best damn Scottish Ale I believe I have ever laid my lips on. A tad sweet, smooth, excellent aftertaste. ;)

nice easy drinking scotch ale. little bit on the sweet side (as is the style). relatively light hopping, not as carmalized or syrupy as other scottish ales. enjoyable if not all that special

UPDATED: FEB 23, 2003 Bronz-like w/ a thin layer of bubbles..aroma of burnt sugar and granny smith apple skins..malty goodness in a half shell..
Big malts in the flavor ending in an apple-like sweetness..hops barely noticeable in this bottle save for a tad of a bitter end..Caremel apple goodness and a warming alcohol tingle

Not that this is a bad beer, Its just that Iíd seen so many Three Floyds in the "best beer", I guess I was expecting more. Nice flavors, but a watery body. Seemed a bit weak.

Hoppy as always, and smooth. Lots of malty character and Goldings hops. Fairly robust as well. A very respectable scottish ale, but not the best.

Nice. 9%?? I donít believe it. Seems so light. Not to be drunk ice cold as mine was. Swallowed it up in about a minute. Very good.

Malty but crisp. A great Scottish Ale.
