Pours a two finger cream head that fades to a thin layer leaving some lace. Clear amber color. Light-medium carbonation and medium bodied. Malty nose. Didn’t realize this was a Scottish Ale more like a brown. Mellow sweetness, some spiciness. Very drinkable. $1.42 for a 12oz bottle from Valley Liquors Methuen, MA. Best by Mar 2007.

12oz bottle. This is from a local brewery to me so I have tried most of their offerings. As with their other beers there is nothing special here. Just OK.

2.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 11/20
UPDATED: APR 4, 2005 Tap at Redbones: pours dark amber with a creamy beige head. Mild caramel aroma. Flavor seems a bit off, almost vegetal. Mild earthy hop flavor. Decent but something seems off with this.
Bottle: pours clear copper with a smallish tan head. Light aroma of anise. Light flavor of anise. Better than the tap at Redbones.

3.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
12oz bottle courtesy of Secret Santa lackenhauser poured into a pint glass.
Pours a dark clear reddish amber with a small head that lingers as a ring for a while and leaves some spotty lacing.
The aroma is subtle but nice, with sweet caramel and toasted malts as a base with some sweet fruits on top, maybe some raisins and figs. The aroma is definitely on the sweeter side of things.
The taste is sweet, but the caramel malts always seem a little subdued with the toasted character and hints of smoke getting into the mix.
The mouthfeel is fairly light for the style with moderate carbonation.
This is a decent enough effort at a wee heavy and very drinkable. However, nothing stands out and its pretty run-of-the-mill overall.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Sampled at Mass Brewers Fest @ Julio’s. Poured a clear red/amber with a small, dense off white head. Sweet caramel nose with just a hint of smoke. Fairly sweet taste with more caramel malt and some nuttiness. Some spices. Sweet, but not overly so. Full bodied and warming.

3.3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
On-tap. This is a nice rich amber colored brew with plenty of malt character. The middle is a tad sweet and the finish is rather bitter and dry. One of the better ones from this Brewer.

Bottle. Poured a nice deep red body with nice head. Aroma is chocolate, spices, smoke. Flavor has all the above that are mentioned plus a sweet side to it. Smooth. Possibly their best.
