BranGur (1) - - MAY 6, 2017 does not count
Good body, less head than desired for Scottish style. Tastes closer to an amber alert than a Scottish Red. Color is as expected for the style.

kaser (6366) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - JUL 3, 2016
This was a nice surprise after the first 4 in the flight were almost Undrinkable. Red and cloudy. Sweet and some fruit notes. Had this as part of a flight at Monterey Coast Brewing in Salinas, CA.

Tap at the brewpub. Pours Amber, slightly ruddy, with a beige head. Malty, hoppy aroma. Flavor is malty; not getting detectable smoke; lightly hoppy. Drier than expected. Not very bitter. Very pleasant tho.

"this one was a winner. Smooth, sweet, rich, and just enough smoke to sit up and take notice. their best beer, would be good in any season. A touch of hops in the finish (with subtle peat) keeps the sweetness honest."

2.8
GIJOE (1250) - North Berwick, Maine, USA - FEB 11, 2014
Pours a deep burnt-gold color with a thin white head that dissipates quickly. Nose is faintly malty. Taste is a bit bitter with honey undertones. Medium body, lively carbonation, dry finish. Not bad. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

anders37 (26878) - Malmö, SWEDEN - APR 5, 2013
Draft @ the brewpub. Pours a pale amber color with a small off-white head. Has a fruity malty spicy caramel aroma. Fruity malty caramel flavor with spicy hints. Has a fruity malty caramel finish with weak hoppy hints.

3.4
brokensail (16633) - Dublin, California, USA - DEC 27, 2012
A light amber colored beer with an off-white head. The nose is sweet and malty with a nice toast and bread character. Some subtle fruit esters, a mild grass note, light peat, and yeast. The flavor has a slight dryness to it, particularly the finish, but is otherwise sweet. Bread, toast, and a light fruitiness. Some yeast, subtle spicy hops, and very light peat.

I had this on draft at Monterey Coast Brewing. Their sign said that the malts used in this were from Glen Eagles (well, it was Glen E.. it was a bit far away) and it did give this malty brew a taste of scotch. Unlike their description, it’s not full bodied, medium at best. It’s a tasty brew though

3.2
IrishBoy (4228) - Bakersfield, California, USA - APR 17, 2010
Draft at the brewpub. Nose was roasty and caramel. Rusty amber with a small off white head. Flavor was light bitterness, raosty wheat, and a hint of smoke.

Nothing inspiring but a generally good microbrew. Bought a growler from the tap in Salinas, it didn’t last too long.
