3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Caramelized malt aroma and flavor. Taste is a full bodied malty ale. Has a lagerish funk feel to the finish and maybe even a bit of a metallic finish as well?? Ok. Has some good points but not great. Had a weird sediment and also the Carmelites malt has a bit of a fake feel. Drinkable and an ok beer but not great.

2.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 6/20
Bot. Smell is sweet old lager. Looks like iced tea. Has littel bits of things floating around inside. Decent carbonation for a Scottish beer. Taste is sweeter odd peat. Difficult if not medicinal. Not sure what to think, perhaps its something like a peat flavored Vienna? Can’t even be in the same style as Crooked Tongue Edinburg Scottish 70 Ale,
East End Session #01 - Mild Scottish Ale/80 Shilling,
Weasel Boy Plaid Ferret Scottish Ale or even

2.7 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Pours up brown with a brown foamy head. Not much on aroma, just light caramel and hint of booze. Taste is thin and watery, a bit of peaty malt on the tongue, a mild hop presence and thats it. Finishes a bit dry. Not their best offering.

3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
12 oz. looks like it was bottled 05/19/2015. Nose is earth-spiced toffee, dark bread, apple, dried grass and cola. Pours clear copper-brown with a thin smattering of lasting foam. Body is to the lighter side of medium and has a smooth medium carbonation. Nice balance to the flavors with the toffee malt taste countered by earthy leaf, acidic dry cocoa, husky grain and apple tones.

2.9 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Good beer. Caramelized sugar is the most notable part of this beer. Easy drinking. Not much nose on this one and the finish is nothing special but this is a very drinkable beer that will not disappoint.

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Soft copper brown pour with one finger of tan head. Malty and sweet aroma with notes of caramel, toasty malt, earthy bready notes, fruit, and a touch of alcohol. Medium body. Grain and toast malt profile with some heat and sweetness. More rustic/earthy than aroma.
