Rusty brown pour with a thick creamy lightly tanned head. Citrus, florals, and hints of pine jump out in the nose, but sweet toasty caramel malt tones lie just beneath the surface. Smooth grapefruit and piney bitterness flavors up front, slightly grainy throughout, with a light sweet caramel malt bringing it home. Medium to full bodied, soft carbonation, dry, bitter finish. Very nice as with most of BRs brews, but Scottish Style Red Ale?? Hmmmm....lets just call it an IPA and move on please....

22oz bomber. Dark brown color with a small tan head. Sweet malt and hop aroma. Flavor is lightly sweet malt on first sip, before turning dry and bitter with the hops coming through.

ojclark (69) - Santa Monica, California, USA - APR 23, 2005
UPDATED: MAY 2, 2005 Subtle hoppy, malty aroma. Poured with a very thick light beige head that lingered a while. Deep reddish brown color that was dark, but translucent. Roasted, caramel malt flavor offset by a restrained hoppiness. Pleasant aftertase was a good blend of the flavor characteristics. Fairly rich, well-carbonated mouthfeel bordering on creamy due to the fine carbonation. Overall, a very nice beer: a balanced and rich amped-up red ale.

Bottle from LoweredSixth. Pours a ruddy brown color. Nice compact off-white head and good lacing. Aroma is pleasantly malty with just a touch of hop presence. Body is medium and smooth. Decent carbonation. Malty initial flavors are overridden with a long slow hop buildup and finish. LIngering bitterness. Nice.

IMtheOptimator (1167) - Brookfield, Connecticut, USA - APR 10, 2005
Poured a clear effervescent reddish brown witih a creamy off-white head. Clean aroma of grapefruity hops. Taste is predominantly hops with small notes of a smooth sweet malt backbone. Not especially complex, but well-crafted and very enjoyable.

XL-amount of fir tree hops. Red to brown bodied with a slightly dirty white head. Large head and tons of lacing. Strong and flavorful. Flavor: fir tree hops and some florals with a hint of citrus. Slightly bitter finish. Nice name ;)

HopsOrDie (687) - New Lenox, Illinois, USA - MAR 26, 2005
Pours a dark amber with a huge fluffy off white head. Theres a ton of carbonation in this brew. Earthy hop aroma with caramelly grain. This is like a soupped up American Red. The high carbonation leaves a unwanted tingle which makes it hard to taste other qualities.

pivo (2672) - GERMANY - MAR 18, 2005
Fresh hop and grain nose - caramelly malt too. Dark auburn color and a low head. Caramelly and toasted grains in the flavor. Medium body. Lingering hop bitter acros the whole mouth. Nice ale. Big enough to stand alone, but would also complement food well.

Cornfield (5570) - Oak Forest, Illinois, USA - MAR 14, 2005
This has a beautiful, deep red color with a creamy, rocky head. The heavy hop aroma masks the malty scents with pine, flowers, and orange. The caramel flavors of the malt do come through with power matched by strong hop bitterness. Nice bitter hoppy finish. Im not sure why BR is disguising this as a Scottish Red Ale - - its got plenty of merits as its own style.

aspidites (1272) - manteca, California, USA - MAR 14, 2005
Big floral and resinous hop nose with caramel and roast malt notes. Clean with a touch of bread dough and crytal malt flavors. Nice bitterness big for style but fine with me. Nice mild dark fruit comes in at mi palate, Plums and raisins. Resinous and malty mouthfeel. Big resin and oil finish with some roasted malt.
