COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
In centuries past, to ensure a plentiful crop, the Celts would donate a variety of malts for a community ale to please the Shony, a local water spirit. Sadly, the custom dictated that they throw it all in the ocean. Our traditional 80 Shilling Scottish-style ale is a robust brew with notes of sweet caramel and mellow roast--best enjoyed on land, not in the sea!

This 12 oz bottle was sent to me by Strykzone. Thanks Dave. Pours amber to brown with a tan head and thick lacing rings. Nose is rich caramel malts with some light fruit. Medium to full in body with as almost oily mouth feel. Flavor runs to malts and the finish is sweet. Very tasty and quite enjoyable.

Pour is a dark brown with some red highlights and almost no head at all. Aroma is a decent dark fruit with some brown sugar. Flavor is more dark sugar and dark fruit with an earthy malt finish. This was a flavorful Scottish ale boarding on German dopplebock territory. vanilla,

Strykzone (7043) - Wood River, Illinois, USA - OCT 3, 2016
12 ounce bottle. Deep amber brown and opaque. A beige head leaves rich lacing. The aroma is of a Scottish ale and is rich to the nose. The flavor is also authentic and classic. A sweet maltiness. Sweet toffee and a dry bitterness seems to be an Americanization. Some fruit and a little floral, too. Toast and bread, almost fruit cake.

vyvvy (6125) - Florissant, Missouri, USA - SEP 5, 2016
The beer pours brown with a beige head. The aroma has toffee, brown sugar, toast, candy and smoothness. It has a medium body with fairly soft carbonation. The taste mirrors the aims pretty much and is pretty decent.

Homer321 (4519) - Melboring, Florida, USA - AUG 2, 2016
Draft at source. Light smokey and stable flavors toffee and faint roast. Taste follows but overall seems to lack the malt complexity and mouthfeel of a Scottish export. A touch thin.

bnokk (511) - Lee, Massachusetts, USA - MAY 12, 2016
APPEARANCE- dark copper color. A bit hazy and light head with good lacing. NOSE- strong malt, littlest bitterness possible. Some kind of root beer scent to it. FLAVOR- kind of bland. A bit of maltiness, but no other strong flavors.

kaser (5978) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - MAY 5, 2016
Carmel and scotchy notes. Coffee flavor and maybe some nuts. Good full flavor, just not a huge fan of the style. Dark brownish pour from draft at Beermiscuous. not bad.

Patrickctenchi (6364) - Coxs Knob, columbus, Indiana, USA - APR 28, 2016
Bottle: Cloudy, medium brown with a creamy, light beige head. Toffee, slightly toasted grain scent. Buttery, cola and toffee malt taste. A bit of a tang to it.... Ok, but a little bland and weak bodied.
