Shot (166) - Westerville, Ohio, USA - AUG 1, 2014
On tap at Columbus Brewing. Dark brown with a thin head. Aroma of sweet malt and biscuit. Malty flavors with toasty, bready notes. Bone-dry finish with muted hop flavors. An interesting departure from typical malty sweet Scottish ales. Malty, yet dry and crisp. Medium to light mouthfeel. Good, but not great.

phaleslu (6665) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - APR 27, 2014
Draft at Columbus Brewing Company. Pours a clear amber with a small white head. Notes of toffee, brown sugar, butterscotch, and leaves. Starts a bit on the cloyingly sweet sides but gets blander as it warms. Light-bodied, with a malty, clean mouthfeel and moderate carbonation. Doesn’t leave much of an impression.

Fritz123 (1078) - Boca Raton, Florida, USA - APR 20, 2014
Draft at the CBC Restaurant. Pint glass. Pours a deep brown with a moderate white head that lasted and mildly laced. Aroma of nuts, earth, peat, roasted malts, and leather were present. Slight booze smell as well which was odd for a 4.5%. Taste was similar with the heavy malts. Didn’t seem terribly balanced. Kind of off for me. Medium body, medium carb. Finish was kind of messy.

DrSilverworm (6805) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - JUN 29, 2013
On tap during Ohio Brew Week 2013, taster from Crystal. Mostly clear golden orange color. Minimal off-white head, no lace. Medium body. Lighter, kind of crisp carbonation, lightly soft texture. More dry finish. Caramel malt is featured here, along with some spicy hop / malt. Bit of tropical fruitiness. Sweeter taste, light bitter. OK Scottish..
