Dark brownish color. Sweet nose with a sweet malty body. On tap at the Bristol Brewing company. Thaichile (599) - 10aFly, New Jersey, USA - APR 28, 2007
Bottle. Pours an iced tea brown with a normal head. Nose is malty toasted nuts. Flavor is very thin and not as robust as others of the style have been. Slight roasty notes and continuation of the toasted nuts. I am not a big fan of Scotch Ales and this was just a reinforcer of that. ph0tik (92) - Denver, Colorado, USA - APR 15, 2007
Had this at an Old C’s from a bottle. Nothing special as far as scotish ales go but not bad either. Pours a dark brown/red with fairly little aroma. There wasn’t enough other flavors going on to balance out the sweetness. hepburn82 (143) - SCOTLAND - APR 11, 2007
An OK scottish ale. Ruby brown. Very malty, earthy US hops, slighty sweet. Not smoky enough for me.

Pours a slightly hazed brown with a vanishing head. The aroma is extremely malty, a little earthy with a touch of black tea. Very sweet and malty. No actual hop aroma or flavor. allfreej (556) - Louisville, Kentucky, USA - OCT 11, 2006
Bottled. Poured reddish copper, tan head. Big, malty nose, caramel notes. Malty, sweet, caramel, nutty flavor, with a hint of smoke. Finish was nicely hopped, without being too bitter for the style. MrEcted1 (144) - Wheat Ridge, Colorado, USA - OCT 5, 2006
UPDATED: MAR 7, 2008 This is a decent scottish ale produced by Bristol Brewing. Pours a nice dark ruby red (but leaning a bit towards brown) hue. Caramel, roasted - nutty flavors and maybe some over-ripe apples come through. Average head and lacing but the color is beautiful. Very good beer for brew newbies, but also satisfies the aficionados. iskirwan1 (66) - monument, Colorado, USA - SEP 30, 2006

12oz bottle-An aroma of malt and caramel on an amber medium body with an off white head. Taste of malt and caramel. Not a bad tasting beer but I don’t know if it fits the style.
