nose of weak malt. color is appropriate but flavor matches the aroma which is lacking in true definition, only bare bones caramel. this is an almost average brown ale but truly cripple scottish ale. MIBRomeo (2570) - Wisconsin, USA - AUG 10, 2008

On tap at Fratellos Oshkosh. Copper with thin off-white head. Aroma of caramel, sweet malts, wheat and mild roasted malts. Taste of sweet malts, caramel, roasted malts with a touch of toffee and mild hops. Smooth and decent, I’d have this one again. phishpond417 (2088) - Madison, Wisconsin, USA - JUN 1, 2008
It was a very light colour for a scottish ale, clear amber colour with a small head. Very little caramel taste. Mouthfeel was incredilby light, very weak for its style overall. IlanMan (1015) - Appleton, Wisconsin, USA - MAY 16, 2008
Pours a dark golden with an aroma of caramel and slight hop bitterness. Flavor is medium malty caramel with ever so slight pale hops. Decent brew. Nothing special for a Scottish ale. Probably won’t buy again.

On draught at both brewpub/brewery locations (Appleton and Oshkosh).SHANER4 (500) - Green Bay, Wisconsin, USA - SEP 8, 2007
Rating base on Oshkosh version - pours a clear dark coppery amber brew with a thick/creamy off-white head that has excellent retention and lacing. Aroma of sweet caramel malt, a touch of peat, flowery hops and a touch of earthy herbs. Taste is medium bodied, light carbonation with a slight metallic texture of caramel malt and peat. Finish has a mild bitterness with a powdery caramel malt aftertaste. The Appleton version pours a dark coppery amber brew with a thick and creamy off-white head that has good retention and lacing. Aroma of butterscotch, caramel malt, some flowery hops and a touch of honey. Taste is medium bodied, light carbonation with more of a butterscotch flavor than sweet caramel malt. Finish has a semi-sweet butterscotch flavor. The two locations versions are quite different from each other.
On tap at Fox River Brewpub. Poured a reddish brown color with small head. This is my first scottish ale so I’m not quite sure if this is a good one. Tasted like rootbear and a hint of grape soda. Not that bad but not that great either. Overall a simple beer with very little flavor. Jabswitch (278) - Green Bay, Wisconsin, USA - JUL 6, 2007
This was a nice improvement over the Weis which I sampled just before. Deep brownish-red in color. Sweet, malty aroma and taste. Pleasant tasting and very drinkable. Not a big fan of Scottish ales but I would give this one another try. jewedekind (450) - Middleton, Wisconsin, USA - APR 27, 2007
tap in Oshkosh. Deep garnet with a thin head that laces well. Very dry, dusty with cookie dough aroma - only a faint hint of smoke. Not a lot of heft...not a lot of malt. More like a dry brown. Bockyhorsey (2628) - Mesa, Arizona, USA - AUG 2, 2006
Bottle, Sweet spicy aroma. Amber body with thin head. Flavor was dominated by the spice and had a mild sweet malt mixed in. Too spicey and little harsh on the palate.
