Rich, red hue and malty overtones are reminiscent of a "70 shilling" Scottish ale adapted by American brewers to what is now the amber style. This malty brew is combined with Cascade mountain water and our own strain of yeast making for a smooth and rounded "session" ale.

Cask-conditioned at the alehouse. Fuzzy mouthfeel, subtle coppery and malt flavors. Creamy head.

Going on memory here since it’s been a while, but I remember a deep amber pour with a moderate white head. Hefty on the malt in both aroma and flavor, with zero complexity and a too sweet and cloying mouthfeel.

A great color for an amber. A very deep and rich red shade of amber. Apart from a neat color...

Had this ber on 5/27/1998. Color is a deep rich brown with a touch of amber, very good carbonation and nice head. Aroma has is a sweet malt scent with slight hop tones. Taste is earthy and a little woody. It starts off with a medium body with the malt flavors coming threw, then it goes down easy and begins to turn earthy. The finish has what I can only describe as a wood like taste as if it was fermented with tree bark. Is not bad but I prefer an amber that has a good malt taste not the taste of a tree.

Excellent overall beer. I recommend it widely for those looking for a new beer to try.

Very malty orange/red color with a nice head. Good rich mouthfeel and palate. Its all about the malt

CaptKirk (175) - Hephzibah, Georgia, USA - OCT 22, 2005
Rich deep red hue with a malty aroma. Their description is a scottish ale, but I found it to be a just plain red ale. Good malty beer that finishes clean. I liked this beer, but is not my favorite. If you thought this one was ok, try the Ebenezer.

A very good draft after a very long flight. May have influenced my decision
