Pours copper, smells and tastes sweet. Was kind of plain and dry. Not bad but not great scotch ale. I wasn’t sure where it was going.

Nose is almost nonexistent. Small, white head with a good amount of lacing. Pours a clear sparkling copper. Flavor is sweet with a moderately sweet finish and a touch of alcohol. Medium-bodied with a watery feel around the mouth and a fair amount of fizz. Decent, although not particularly noteworthy. (Draft at brewpub in Philly)

Draught @ Brewery: Very little scent. Pourded medium brown color with small, non-lasting brownish head. Taste was pretty good. Not too malty, as I had expected it would be. Roasted and toasted notes with a bit of vanilla. Easy to drink. Overall, I could have a few of these, but I still prefer IPAs.

On draft at the Philly Fringe Festival Cabaret in Poor Henry’s old spot. Thin, weak, forgettable brown ale. Too bad.

Malty aroma, but weak. Copper-brown clear with thin off-white lacing head. Medium body with medium-high carbonation. Starts with medium malts, light acidity, no bitterness. Dry caramel malt, light sweetness. Hint of café, nuttiness. After is papery with some nuttiness.

very light interpretation of a scottish ale. has a light hint of smoked malt but is sweet and very thin, just smells of brown sugar

DocLock (10647) - Lower Pottsgrove, Pennsylvania, USA - JUN 21, 2004
Pours dark brown with some malt, toffee, and cognac aromas. Tastes of malt, toffee, some hops. A little thin on mouthfeel.

egajdzis (6499) - Pennsburg, Pennsylvania, USA - JUN 20, 2004
UPDATED: APR 21, 2005 Deep amber color with a small tan head. Malty and roasty aroma. Very light smoke and caramel taste. Some roast in there as well. Very nice subtleties in this cask conditioned beer.

Mild yet flavorful. Grain/malt/slightly chewy. Big of smoke in finish. Roasty aroma. Good example for the light scottish it is. I wasn’t expecting it to be a crazy wee-heavy because its not a scotch ale. Having sampled quite a few in the style made in Scotland, I think it was true to style. I just wish it wasn’t filtered.
