Mike_in_Kansas (23) - Olathe, Kansas, USA - APR 13, 2013
Poured from a bottle into pint glass. Pours copper red with an average sized off-white frothy head. Head is fairly long lasting with good lacing. Beer is cloudy with just a bit of small particles. Nice balanced smell with both moderate bready malt smell and moderate grassy/citrusy hoppy smell. Initial taste is light sweet citrus that finishes moderately bitter. Finish is short; medium-bodied with a creamy/syrupy feel.

Not my normal style but a nice change definitely a Scottish ale not a spectacular appearance but makes up for it with a very nice medium body with a thick texture

Scipio (900) - Palatine, Illinois, USA - FEB 14, 2017
Pours a clear amber with a thin off white head. The aroma consists of toffee, toasted malts, and nuts, and it isnt very strong. The taste has some mild bitterness. Its very nutty, and has toffee, biscuit, earthy malts, and a bit of butter. Aftertaste is long and mild, with nuts and biscuit. Medium in body, smooth in texture, and average in carbonation. This wasnt very exciting.

chicagobears (460) - Elk Grove Village, Illinois, USA - FEB 4, 2017
Burnt amber pour into New Glarus, Wisconsin pint glass. I took a chance on this as it is new to our area. Aromas of caramel and a bit earthy. A bit of hoppy spiciness. This one is more malt forward but has good balance. Flavors of chocolate malts and rich caramel. Finishes spicy with and slightly dry. Good sweet flavors without being too sweet or cloying. A well rounded beer. I can see why this is there "flagship" beer. Good Scottish/Amber ale.

I had to revisit this as it was my main go to in college. It was okay, and I can see why I liked it; smooth and fairly rich, but it is not really to my tastes at this time.
