Ambe rin color, clear with a thin head. Nice scottish ale rich thick malt with a light hops. There is a smoky finish like a nice scotch.
Very chewy beer with a lot of carmelized complexities. Barely bitter. A good brew to sip. JaBier (8156) - Capital City, Ohio, USA - JAN 10, 2010

scottish ale with nice malts and a little sweet. The hint of smoke is a nice touch. auerbrau (3203) - Ithaca, New York, USA - DEC 30, 2008
On tap at the brewpub. Aroma is non-existent faint generic malt. Pours a darker amber caramel, with a rim in off-white. Flavor is very, very plain. Not offensive, but not nearly characterful enough. This is plain. Generic malt. Faint, faint smoke and some toasted wheat. A bit of bread and some alcohol. Palate runs a little sweet. Meh. Drinkable, but nothing to get excited about. jcwattsrugger (12517) - Florida and, New Jersey, USA - SEP 1, 2008
