Draft sampler pours amber with a off white head. Aroma of malts, smoky and floral. Taste is caramel, grains and bready. FROTHINGSLOSH (7796) - GREENSBURG, Pennsylvania, USA - MAY 24, 2016
Sampled on draft at the brewpub this beer poured a medium caramel color with a medium sized foamy white head that left decent lacing. The aroma was sweetish and yeasty with a hint of fruit. The flavor was tangy and sweetish with caramel and a bit of fruit. Medium length finish. Medium body and smooth. Pleasant. HonusWagner (2168) - Florida, USA - OCT 22, 2015
A rather uninteresting but plenty drinkable example of the style. Light malty sweetness, nondeScript hop profile, low bitterness. ads135 (4607) - Omaha, Nebraska, USA - APR 25, 2015
A pretty solid scottish ale. Sweet and rich. Slick mouthfeel. Caramel, toffee, and bread. Bulk_Carrier (6065) - Vermont, USA - MAR 15, 2015
Part of my discounted flight.
The appearance was a nice looking hazy amber to orange color with no head nor lacing. No worries, it is a sample glass.
The smell had a smooth semi - smoked maltiness running into a light cocoa and light coffee.
The taste was mainly the same balanced underneath and glossing into the aftertaste and finish.
On the palate, this one sat about a light to medium on the body with a fairly decent sessionability about it. The carbonation was somewhat controlled.
Overall, I say this was a pretty good Scottish ale as ratebeer suggests. I would have it again.

On tap, poured into a sampler glass. A dough and chalk chalk impression is the first aroma to come through with toffee and citrus following. It pours an oily, clear caramel color with a thin, fluffy white ring, a dusty surface, and it leaves behind a light lace on the glass. The taste is a medium sweet and medium light bitter blend. The thin, medium body beer is mostly flat with just a light, thin carbonation. It goes down smooth with flavors of butterscotch, grass, and a touch of a roast quality. A waxy, citrus character finishes the drink with a light caramel and roast aftertaste. DialSquare (5028) - Columbus, Ohio, USA - SEP 30, 2014
On tap at smokehouse. Brief note: gold pour, dirty white head. Malty aroma. Tastes: malt, tea, caramel, floral. 6.2 Strykzone (7356) - Wood River, Illinois, USA - AUG 9, 2014
Sampled at the brewpub. Clear amber. Sweet and malty with the Scottish notes that should be there. Floral and caramel hints. b3shine (8870) - Indiana, USA - APR 26, 2014
Draft to taster. Looks decent; light for the style though. A transparent gold with eggshell head that steadily dissipates into lacing. Smells mildly malty with notes of caramel. Tastes like it smells with a solid mouthfeel. Not bad. DrSilverworm (9671) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - APR 26, 2014
Taster on tap at Barleys on Dublin. Clear golden orange color. Thin ring of white head. Good bready malt, lightly spicy, some caramel. Smooth, kind of crisp, lighter carbonation. Lightly dry finish. Good earthy hop, light pine. Moderate bitter taste, light to moderate sweet. Good hop on this one, not as sweet and malty as other scottish ales. Makes it a little more bright and refreshing for the style.
