Poured from a 12 OZ can into a pint glass.
Aroma- Has a very sweet malt and vanilla aroma.
Appearance- This beer is a light brown color with a small tan colored head.
Taste- Has a mellow malt flavor with a mix of vanilla, i did not care for the aftertaste.
Palate- A heavy bodied beer with mild carbonation and an oily texture.
Overall- I have not jumped on the "Scotch Ale" bandwagon yet. I have tried several and none of them have blown me away yet. I will try this beer again once I have sampled more of this style. KajII (800) - Macon, North Carolina, USA - MAR 7, 2015
Pours a medium caramel brown with a pillowy off white head and has notes of sweet toasted malts, caramel and a light herbal hop. It has a lightly malty sweet carmel taste with a small dark fruit presence at first, then a decent bitterness slips in to balances it out...

Nice scotch ale. Dry malty body. Caramel. No head. Bready at first, the rounds out to nice hoppy after taste. Tmoney99 (14381) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - FEB 28, 2015
Can. Poured clear brown color with an average to large tan frothy head that mostly lasted with good lacing. Moderate earthy and toasted malt aroma. Medium body with a smooth texture and soft carbonation. Medium toasted sweet flavor with a medium sweet finish of moderate duration. Good brew. ronaldtheriot (1920) - Laplace, Louisiana, USA - FEB 20, 2015
French Broad Wee-Heavy-Er Scotch Style Ale has a thin, beige head, a red-brown, somewhat bubbly appearance, some ascending bubbles, and minor lacing left behind. The aroma is of an odd sweet-sour, some peat, a touch of smoke, caramel candy, and brown bread crust. Taste is of the same strange sweet & sour sauce, moderate bitterness, lemon, lime, and bread. Mouthfeel is on the light side, and French Broad Wee-Heavy-Er finishes mostly dry and not unlike Bud Light Lime, in some respects. RJT

Can. Pours a clear brown with no head. The aroma is scotch and peat. Thin mouth with strong scotch, light smoke, a bit watery. tnkw01 (1753) - Knoxville, Tennessee, USA - OCT 31, 2014
Can. Just an average Scotch Ale. Amber color with not much head. Aroma is a malty, caramel, dried fruit smell. The taste is where it falls flat. The flavor starts off fine. Caramel and such. The after-taste is terrible. Chemical-bitter taste. hayduke (5188) - Eureka, California, USA - SEP 29, 2014
From a 22 oz bottle this poured a rich red-amber color with a beige head. No appreciable lacing. Nose of caramel malts, and ripe dark fruit. Medium body. Flavor oaf rich malts and a little bitterness in the finish. Good. jgb9348 (6199) - Arlington (Pentagon City), Virginia, USA - SEP 22, 2014
Rich, deep hazy brown coloured body with a very hazy glow of lighter brown at the bottom and a thinnish, single centimetre tall tan head. Aroma of nuts, alcohol, paint, pecans, earth and some milk - quite pungent. Medium-bodied; Assertive flavour of cherries, lemons, turpentine, grass, nuts, alcohol and toasted malt - all over the place, really. Aftertaste shows a complex melange of citrus, malts and caramelised sugars, naturally not making sense together, but working sort-of in a kind of funky mix. Overall, a decent beer with some odd flavours - some work and some don’t, but a decent beer to try if you like the style, since it’s atypical. I sampled this twelve ounce can purchased from Total Wine in Cary, North Carolina on 02-August-2014 for US$2,49 sampled at home in Washington on 22-September-2014. User134089 (1644) - - SEP 17, 2014

Poured a dark mahogany semi-opaque color with 2-to-3 fingers of khaki-tan frothy lacing. Healthy dose of bubbles coming up from the bottom at lots of different locations. Minimal lacing on the sides of the glass. Average-to-above average retention on the top all the way down. (Sight - 3.80)
Smelled dark apple, caramel, toffee, red apple, Scotch whiskey, dark sour fruit and apple juice. Apple I tell you. (Smell - 3.80)
Tasted similar to the nose. Got dark apple, red apple, apple juice, caramel, toffee, light butterscotch, Scotch whiskey, honey and more dark sour fruit. (Taste - 3.53)
Medium body. Oily texture. Average carbonation. Long, smooth finish. Alcohol was well hidden. (Feel - 3.87)
This was a better than average scotch beer, although I feel like I slightly overrated it (without looking at the eventual ratings). (Overall - 3.79)
