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 (898) - 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 (5898) - 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..

JStax (2772) - Devola/Marietta, Ohio, USA - JUN 25, 2012
Poured on draft. Appearance is a murky amber with a creamy head of beige foam. Aroma is nutty, peaty, and earthy with some darker malt characteristics shining through. Taste is earthy and sweet without much in the way of bitterness. Not a bad scottish, just a tad uneventful.

On tap at Weasel Boy this past weekend. Pours a dark brown with a good tan head and a bit of lacing on the way down. Nose brings forth caramel and a faint nuttiness and a bit of an earthy character plus some hops in the background. Flavor features caramel, toffee, toast, and a nice bit of hops. Medium body with good carbonation. Solid brew all around. Serving type: on-tap
