bdleedahl (424) - , Saskatchewan, CANADA - APR 17, 2017
This beer is far too thin and low on body for a scottish ale at 6%. Not a lot of "scotch" taste to it either. However, it is cleanly made. Taste & tap SD.

Shared 12 oz. bottle. Pours amber with a small off-white head. Malty aroma. Taste is malt, caramel, spice, yeast, some fruitiness. Really kind of a mess - flavors all over the place. Flavor is not particularly pleasant. Did not finish.

BroSpud (2147) - , Massachusetts, USA - FEB 14, 2017
On tap at one of the airport restaurants in Phoenix. Should have known this was an AB-InBev deal. Tasted of a macro version of a scottish ale. A bit too sweet and malt heavy but drinkable. Alright I guess.

This is the best beer Id had in the 20 years since I got back from serving in Germany. The flavor dances on the tongue and you can have it with just about any meal. I absolutely love this beer, but unfortunately I dont live in Arizona anymore and cant find it in Oklahoma.
