Perfect, perfect, perfect! I drink this by preference by the six-pack since I can get it at my local grocer, but on draft.... Oh, hell yeah! Amazing flavor, perfect head, aroma that soothes, palate pleasing, smooth finishing beverage of perfection. And its from Arizona? Too perfect!

This is the best beer I’d 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 don’t live in Arizona anymore and can’t find it in Oklahoma.

I used to go to school in Arizona and I became hooked. I now crave it and wish there is some way that I could get some sent to me in Illinois. But alas.....I cannot *tear*

I’ m not sure why a comment is needed but I like this beer. I also try to support local so it’s a win win for me as I live in AZ.

Pours a clear amber/copper with little head, but lots of carbonation. The head is off white with very fine bubbles. Aroma of stewed fruitiness with a slight dryness. The taste is fairly dry, with a bit of maltiness in the back of the throat. Slightly roasty. The bitterness seems to kick in a few seconds after you swallow. Slight alcohol warming. Light to Medium bodied, surprisingly little carbonation in the mouth, considering the carbonation in the bottle. Bitterness definitely lingers. I will happily drink a fair amount of these. 355ml bottle, Poured. Thanks Amanda for bringing this for me!

Again do not see the scores reflecting that this brew is a great Scottish ale. Amber to garnet, big head and carbonation brought out wonderful malts and dark fruits. Taste is just like smell with added peat to it and some anise. Excellent.

UPDATED: JAN 7, 2003 Real deep amber color. Malty nose. Sweet malt start, medium body, smokey alcohol finish.

Great, great dinner beer! Robust yet smooth, sweet smokey flavor, slightly bitter finish resembling a vodka soaked martini olive. I think it’s got great balance and would recommend this ale to anyone!

This is a decent beer, not the best, but definatly among ’em. Good color, dark golden. Decent head. Kind of sweet, not too hoppy. Not bad.

Tap. Great beer, separate alcohol taste at times, but overall an extremely enjoyable beer. On the strong side and definitely easy to drink - so buyer beware. Great beer for the winter as well.
