Tap. Pours with a ciopper to brown color. Aromas of caramel and a bit of hops. Flavors more dominated by malts, some hoppiness and a bit of chocolate. Hides the alcohol very well, almost too well. Very pleasant mouthfeel and palate, just the right body.

scanman (150) - Santa Cruz, California, USA - SEP 7, 2006
Pours a dark brown with a thick head. Tasty but very complex. Flavors dont seem alive or potent, but there is a lot of nice balance. Malt, hops, sweet creamy ale. Well worth trying. Needs an expiration date, I dont trust my beer store for good turn around.

Another fine product from the Rock steady Moylans! A nice brown ale colored. Very nice thick [two fingered at least] head, cream colored. Nice thick Brussels lacing all the way down! This is what a Scotch ale should be in my book. Some earthy slightly smokey aroma Malty well balanced flavor. Easy to drink, careful of the % Eugene! Seems like a session beer [minus a few alcohol percentage points of course] Tasty beverage!

beervana (781) - Libertyville, Illinois, USA - AUG 25, 2006
(06.26.06) One pint, 6 oz brown bottle from Liquorama.com. 8% ABV. Poured hazy brown with giant off-white head. Good carbonation. Caramel hoppy aroma. Medium bodied Scotch-style ale that starts semi-dry with light malt sweetness and toasted malt/caramel/hop flavors. Finished dry with light malt fade. Well-balanced and smooth. Definite alcohol warmth. This is a very good ale.

A pretty good scotch ale but nothing extreme. It has a very watery goodness that almost takes me somewhere and then it drops me on my bum. I was pleased with the first taste but as the beer went on... it went on for far too long. Moylan has not impressed me.

hopdog (11984) - Lansdale, Pennsylvania, USA - AUG 14, 2006
22oz bottle acquired in trade with DarkElf (thanks!). Poured a deep and lightly cloudy amber color with a huge, huge sized off white head. This one poured almost all head. Lots of little floaters. Aromas of peat, toffee, earth, and caramel. Tastes of caramel, light peat, light chocolate, and toffee. Not overly complex but enjoyable. I expected the body to be fizzy and overcarbonated from the loud psst upon opening and huge head, but it wasnt. Alcohol content well hidden.

Lighter in color than most of the other scotches Ive tried recently - kind of copper/mahogany. The 8% alcohol is well masked and the malty sweetness is overpowering. Little to no hop aroma/bitterness to speak of.
