Poured from a can into a pint glass. Pours out a cola-like brown with no noticeable highlghts, minimal head that dissipates quickly. There is a vegetal aroma that is quite noticeable that is mixed with a muddy peated aroma. Tastes a bit off and perhaps this particular can is a one off? Vegetal flavor with muted sweetness most likely from caramel malts. The peated flavor is a bit one dimensional. Yeast esters are non-existent and tastes as if it was brewed with a clean ale yeast. Mouthfeel was a bit soft for a scottish ale, we were expecting something a bit more alkali. We were severely disappointed because we were hoping for so much more. Alexmestas (29) - - JUN 3, 2012
Low hopped. Session beer, really which I don't usual encounter with Scottish ales. Moderate malty but mostly amber tasting, with, for lack of a better word, a lager finish.

I’m being generous with my review because for the price paid this is an outstanding beer. I paid a whole $1.99 for this beer. I drank it out of the can so my rating on the appearance is based on the artwork, which is badass. Taste is pretty typical of a Scottish ale. Not too hop oriented with that sweetness that only a Scottish ale can really give you. This is easily drinkable and I could see myself using this as a session beer easily.

Lightish and easy-to-drink Scottish ale. Light notes of earth, wort and possibly even a little peat. Fairly clean. Has notes of fresh bread, light toast and nuts, plus a touch of caramel. Faint hints of fruit, such as red apples, grapes and pears. Mild bitterness. Not overly exciting, but it would make a good session beer. reebtogi (6341) - Edmonton, Alberta, CANADA - FEB 21, 2012
473ml can pours amber in color with a finger of off-white head that leaves only small hints of lacing. Aroma is caramel malts with pine and hints of smoke and earthy hops. Taste is caramel malt sweetness with the pine and slight smoke and an earthy hop bitterness. Medium body and light carbonation. A nice Scottish style ale, but the ABV is a little low for the style.

Amber with full silky head. Slightly smokey presence atop an amber malt background. The body exudes and easy maltiness accompanied by some sweet candied notes. Straightforward and simple Scottish-style brew. Zymurgeist2 (2327) - Redwood City, California, USA - NOV 30, 2011
Pours a deep, clear copper with an off-white head that lingers and has nice lacing. Beautiful, rich caramel malt aroma. Well rounded full, chewy malt. Nice bitterness. 5000 (6862) - Hardened Liver, Washington, USA - NOV 26, 2011
Can:   Deep amber, hazy, moderate frothy light beige head, sparce lacing.   Malty nose, a little
toasty, somewhat mealy, slight forest notes... like sweetened pine or something.   It actually kind of reminds me
of sap on a pinecone.   Very interesting.   Tangy semi-sweet maltiness on the tongue.   Again with the
pine tree and/or pinecone.   It actually lends itself well.   Not much in the way of peat or campfire.
Remains malty flavored on the finish, but its not overly heavy.   I like this one, a little different but also
unique.   Finish is slightly nutty, with a little bit of cocoa.   Yeah, pretty tasty if you ask me! AmEricanbrew (6878) - Same Trailer, Different Park, Louisiana, USA - OCT 21, 2011
Clear amber color/ ivory head. Mild spicy caramel, earthy hop aromas. medium body. Spicy sweet smoky caramel flavors with a smooth finish--not bad after4ever (8025) - Mukilteo, Washington, USA - SEP 12, 2011
16-oz can. Pours a cloudy dark brown with a dense and creamy tan disc of mousse on top. Mild brown-bread malt and gingerbread nose. Creamy medium body with subdued carb. Brown bread and gingerbread mid-palate. Mild finish. Pleasant, but a bit dull. More like the indifferently made browns that plagued that style for years.
