fidelis83 (2383) - Clinton, Iowa, USA - APR 5, 2013
Nearly clear copper pour with a thin, creamy, slightly soapy eggshell head that has good retention. Aroma is woody, toast ed nuts, toffee, light planty, herbal and spicy hops, maybe just a hint of smoke. Flavor is caramel, toffee, and nuts up front, some bready yeast, grass, light peat smoke, cereal, and light spicy and floral hops. Finishes pretty clean, with a pleasant smoky roasted nut fade. Fairly light body with a chreamy to chewy entry, moderate carbonation and neutral to off dry finish. Pretty tasty stuff, I could see myself buying this from time to time if it sticks around. I think I would probably consider more of a Bock than Scottish Ale, though, especially since it is a lager.

12 oz botttle from HyVee in Council Bluffs. No bottling date or expiration date anywhere on the bottle. Slightly clear and color amber with fast dying head. Aroma is lager yeast, light malt, dried leaves.

Very thin and watery with a light smoked malt aftertaste. Might have been good if it wasnt a lager base. Just a tad too thin.

12 oz botttle from HyVee in des Moines. It is as advertised, a German Scottish hybrid. It really does not know what it wants to be. However with Bamberg smoked malt flavor and a Scottish ale background, this beer is very good yet confusing.... in a good way... Love it
