2007 edition thanks to crushinator. Te aroma is consistent with the Scottish style, malty and peaty. It drinks very smooth, even creamy above average mouthfeel. There is lots of lace. It is very drinkable for the style, which is a swallow ata time. slowrunner77 (12455) - Reno, Nevada, USA - DEC 25, 2014
Scores a touch low. A wee heavy this is not, but it warms up nicely to be a malty toffee and fruit forward Scottish ale. Very light smoke and hops. Finished sweet. Pleasant, if not too complex.

A bit watery.
UPDATED: FEB 17, 2007 Bottle... Clear copper ale with a mid-sized, creamy, khaki head. The nose is malty, beefy and herbal. The flavor is beefy and kinda funky with earthy, peppery notes. Moderately sweet. Medium-bodied and oily with tingly carbonation. Bland, lightly bitter finish. Well, that was a bit of a disappointment. daknole (11049) - Scottsdale, Arizona, USA - APR 1, 2009
Pours an amber/red color. Aroma is malty, some spices, caramel malt and some good fruitiness. Flavor has a touch of hops that melds well with the caramel, spices and bit of dark fruit. Good beer. Goes well with enchilada pie! kp (10882) - Woodstock, Georgia, USA - FEB 24, 2008
