Amber colour, small white head. Aroma has mainly caramel malts. Flavour is sweet malty, and that’s basically all. TaktikMTL (7999) - Montréal, Quebec, CANADA - JUL 22, 2008

22oz bomber from a trade. Seriously this is now my third or fourth infected McNeills beer. Do they intentionally infect their beers?? Well I did watch American Beer and after seeing the "great" brewing and botteling facility they have there it’s no wonder they can’t ship an uninfected beer. I have one more McNeill’s to try but I’m pretty sure of the outcome already. Avoid this brewery unless you lke throwing your money away. nramsburg (259) - New York, New York, USA - JUN 5, 2008
Pours light brown with a nice sized creamy head. Really not too much on the nose except for some caramel. Nice mouthfeel -- fairly thick and rich. Other than this not too much is going on in the glass. Sammy (12844) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - MAY 24, 2008
picked up at the Co-Op in Burlington. This is a malt and caramel play,taste and aroma, and very drinkable for what it is. Caramel yellow colour with some head. Above average mouthfeel. Lunchtime sessionable.

Poured from the bottle a nice brown color but little to no head. The aroma was carmel and malt. It was smooth but a bit watery. It was a nice drink but not in the top for Scottish Ales. Sregnar35 (1033) - Rotterdam, New York, USA - APR 2, 2008
Terrible. Poured a nice reddish brown with a good sized head. Aroma is faint but musty and sour. Beer was bad, tasted like vinegar, poor job. puboflyons (3508) - Allenstown, New Hampshire, USA - MAR 23, 2008
From a 1 pint 6 fl. oz (US) bottle - hand brewed and individually bottled with a cheap glued on label that looked like someone designed it on a sketch pad. Carmelized in the kettle. Pours amber red with a beige puffy head that stays around for the session. Aroma of malts and some kind of fruity sweetness. The flavor was more of hops. It was a very good brew and probably hand delivered earlier that week to the bottle store in Vermont where I bought it. thornecb (6092) - Marblehead, Massachusetts, USA - JAN 31, 2008
Pours bright mahogany into a tulip. Off-white pancake head has good retention. Roasted malt aromas. Flat caramel upfront with a crisp metallic finish. DocLock (11108) - Lower Pottsgrove, Pennsylvania, USA - DEC 23, 2006
Pours turbid deep brown, with aroma of caramel malt, some figgy fruit, slight banana and spicy floral notes. The aroma and flavor is a lot like Stone 666. It has more fruit than most scottish ales, with the heavy malt component.
