Bottle courtesy of bitbucket. Pours a clear red-orange with a small white head. Aroma of sweet malts, brown/maple sugar. Flavor of sweet malt, toasted caramel malt, maple sugar, light fruits (raspberry). Quite sweet, but tasty. Light-bodied. This is an ok beer but a little on the sweet side. maekchu (3944) - Hirakata, JAPAN - FEB 23, 2014
Draught at the Tap Room in Tillamook. Rich malty nose. Bright reddish/brown color. Rich roast initial / light hopping and a touch of spiciness / spritzy and balanced finish. Okay. True to style and fairly ordinary. jake65 (3942) - Meridian, Idaho, USA - FEB 13, 2008
Draft @ KLCC Microbrew Festival: Pours a dark brown color with a smaller off-white head. Aroma is sweet with malts, caramel, and kind of sugary. A little hoppiness in the flavor is coved by the brown sugar and caramel sweetness. Some dark fruitiness too. Quite enjoyable. Steve_0 (3745) - Denver, Colorado, USA - JUL 8, 2014
On tap at the Tillamook location. Pour is clear amber-orange with a small white head and good lacing. Husky, grainy, light caramelly, doughy and toasty aroma. Taste is doughy, cereal, caramel, brown malty, and bready with a touch of earthiness on the backend. Medium body with soft carbonation. Meh. SpringsLicker (3644) - Tennessee, USA - DEC 1, 2012
Beautiful clear copper pour under a generous, creamy, off-white head.
Sweet nutty, malty aroma. Bit-O-Honey candy.
The flavor is lightly sweet with no real hop bitterness. Simple, safe, easy drinking.

Draft at brewery: Even though it tasted OK in general, stylistically, this beer seemed a bit off. For one, it lacked the typical characteristics (i.e., higher alcohol, burnt roast, peat, light smoke, little sweetness) you find in most Scottish Ales. And for two, it had an odd cola-like sweetness and a slight fruitiness. Not undrinkable, just curiously odd. beerbuzzmontreal (3487) - Montreal, Quebec, CANADA - AUG 6, 2006
Pours a cloudy amber color with a thin white head. Aroma of earthy and caramel malt with floral hops. Flavor of of caramel and earthy malt. The body is light with medium carbonation. Ordinary, I would have like a thicker malt in there. OldGrowth (3474) - the Containment Area, North Carolina, USA - OCT 10, 2003
Draft: Sour malt nose. Clean amber color. A certain taste I associate with lager. Nutty/sour. Clean drinkin, some linguring bitterness. Good beer, though it seems off from what I think of a scottish. kiwianer (3428) - Otorohanga, NEW ZEALAND - DEC 13, 2012
The head is medium, the body red-brown. it smells malty, aromatic, full bodied. The taste is malty, fruity, full bodied. Nice! 11/11/11/11/11/11 dfinney23 (3360) - Houston, Texas, USA - AUG 12, 2012
Pours clear copper with white head. Grain and malt, maybe a hint of smoke. Needs a bit more substance.
