Nice hoppy Scottish. Good peaty aromas. Body is brownish to amber coloured with little head and a lace sheet. Smooth mouthfeel. Good hops that kicked up the taste and drinkability.
On tap at the brewery. douglas88 (9504) - Portland, Oregon, USA - JUL 3, 2011
CC growler. Pours a dark red color with some brownness, a medium white head. The aroma is sweet herbs and fruity malts. The flavor is a very smooth and quaffable Scottish Ale; sweet dusty malts, berries, lemons, very nice. An easy going brew. Ibrew2or3 (8743) - Tempe, Arizona, USA - MAY 9, 2011
Poured up on tap at the CCB tasting room with clear amber body and copper hues as well as a thin white head. The aroma offers up dark fruity esters, some earthiness and roasted malts. The taste is a bit bright with hints of yeasty spice and dark fruity esters rolling into roasted malts, chocolate malts and a nice sense of earthiness. This comes together very well and with a refreshing quality too. JaBier (8112) - Capital City, Ohio, USA - MAY 5, 2011
On tap at CCB on 4/28/11. Clear copper pour with a medium beige head. Malty and peaty nose with caramel and a bit of fruit. Flavor starts malty with a hint of diacetyl with some peaty character and a bitter finish. BückDich (5464) - McCall, Idaho, USA - APR 26, 2011
Tap @ CCB: Dark amber, malty with some light caramel. Decent scottish ale, thin body and a vague mouthfeel. Even the nose is a bit lacking in malts.

On draft at Cigar City. Pours a hazy orange-brown with a white head. Nose is some grain, a bit of sweetness, some dry tobacco, and a hint of fruit, and some yeast. Flavor is similar with a light body and a dry finish. dchmela (3078) - Orlando, Florida, USA - APR 29, 2011
Tap at Cigar City. Pours a reddish brown with a thin off white head. Musty hops, malt and toffee peaking through in the nose. Taste is malty, slightly bready and nutty. Not as complex as some other brews, a decent session beer. kiefdog (1826) - Tampa, Florida, USA - APR 20, 2011
Pours clear brown with thin white head. Aroma is sweet and earthy with notes of malt, bread, nuts and slight sweetness. Flavor is sweet and slightly earthy with notes of bread, nuts, light honey, faint toffee notes. Finish is sweet and lightly bready. JAF737300 (1291) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - MAY 17, 2011
Pours deep amber with nice dried fruit notes. The palate shows strong malt nuances with the effort bringing out the abv and the caremlized fruits. steelcitybrew (454) - Orlando, Florida, USA - APR 15, 2011
Pours a golden brown with a nice white head. Aroma is wheat malty caramel, grassy. Ehh. Kinda malty macro like that has earthy and wheat notes. Palate is weak for this brewery. Wasn’t a fan of this brew
