Off tap at wob cap hill. Pours clear amber. Sips crisp and amber ale like. Low abv and not too malt forward as you might expect. Finish is the most Scotland thing about it. That is where the malt comes stronger. My kind of Scottish ale. I recommended it to a cust who usually drinks bass and she chose this sample over Anderson valley boot amber, so it clearly crosses lines. oregontarheel (45) - - NOV 28, 2013
IBU20. Frosted mug. From a growler. Thin head dissipates quickly. Beautiful dark copper color. Aroma is fine. Not bad but not anything to "lift your kilt" (see what I did there?). Crisp flavor with a light bite. Slightly hoppy. Carmel malty with faint nutty flavor. I'd put it somewhere between an amber and an ipa.

Very malty oaky aroma with a light brown or copper color. Hazy. White head. A bitter primary taste and a malty sweet finish. A medium bodied and a good carb on the tounge.

Sample from firkin at the 6th Annual Rogue Firkin Fest at Green Dragon. Pours a hazy dark amber color with a medium beige head that recedes slowly. Rings of lacing on the glass. The aroma consists of earthy malt, caramel and fruit. Light to medium body with flavors of peaty malt, grain and caramel. The finish is malt with a short earthy aftertaste. Decent overall. altonbrownd (5898) - Chevy Chase, Maryland, USA - APR 14, 2013
Can from Portland supermarket. Caramel body with medium head. Nose is malty, sweet, metallic. Taste similar. Was okay.

On draught at Gubancs. Not what I expected based on it being a Scottish ale. A little too light, but tastes nice and malty. bb (9241) - Alamo, California, USA - AUG 31, 2012
Draft. Caramel beer with a dark cream head. Rich malt and caramel aroma. Caramel and light nutty flavor with malt. Medium bodied. Caramel and light toffee linger. jimmbo123 (44) - Washington, USA - JUL 28, 2012
Tap: Smooth, creamy, bready, caramel, beer flavor, bit honey flavor, nothing offensive. Not too sweet or cidery like many Scottish ales.
Much better on tap. Took me 50 days to finish a keg & it was good all the way through. Previously I had bought some cans of this on sale at New Seasons for only $1.50 each, first few where maybe a 3.8, rest got lost in a move for about 6 months and degraded to about a 3.0.
