12 oz. bottle from Total Wine, Virginia Beach, VA (listed as 8% ABV on the label). Pours light brown with minimal head and shows reddish-orange highlights in the glass. Aroma of graham cracker, chocolate, and light floral hops. The flavor contains the malty sweetness I expect from this style, has undercurrents of chocolate, yet there is just enough citrus and floral hop flavor to keep this from becoming too cloying. The alcohol content is perfect letting you know it is there but certainly not overdone. I have had beers in this category that I like better but none that represented the style more perfectly.

No aroma, dark amber colour, no head. Pleasant taste of malt. Sweet palate of malt and syrup.

A good wee heavy with a lot of spruce and cedar. Medium finish. Nice weight. Perhaps not as bitter as it should be to fall on the scottish side of a red ale.

guzzler67 (1672) - Hanover, Maryland, USA - NOV 20, 2014
Clear, strong tea appearance with a small beige head and decent lacing. Earthy aroma of caramel, smoke and ripe fruit. Flavors are sweet malt, brown bread and dark fruit. Unassuming spicy hop presence. A hint of wood in the aftertaste. Medium bodied, modestly carbonated mouthfeel. Finish is cleaner than many Scotch ales

Bottle. Clear, copper colored beer with no head. A little syrupy with some sweetness and rusty flavors but good for style overall. Higher alcohol makes it a little warming as well.

Mmm, slightly thick and loaded with caramel flavor. Deep red pour without a head and virtually no lacing. The aroma is quite sweet and tempting. The taste is clean and so smooth at 8%. Im a huge scotch ale fan and this doesnt disappoint!

Sampled at VA cheer & beer. Typically not a scotch ale fan, but this is a great example of the style. Pours ruby with a little pillow of cream head. Very balanced sweet, bitter, and malty taste.

Bottle poured a clear reddish brown hue w/ a small creamy beige head. Moderate sweet malty aroma. Initial taste is moderate sweet with a moderate bitter finish of moderate duration. Tastes are malt, earthiness, grass, and vodka. Full bodied, soft carbonation, and a warm boozy finish.
