Draft at Solana Beach. A brown beer with a thin off-white head. The aroma is sweet with strong notes of caramel and medium notes of malt, as well as light notes of butterscotch. The flavor is sweet with strong notes of caramel, medium notes of malt, and light notes of butterscotch, leading to a dry, bitter, and hoppy finish.

Deep amber hue with big tan head. Caramel malts dominate with a touch of peat, light esters, and slight alcohol. Flavor is caramel and peaty malts, finishes prickly and drying. Thick and rich Scottish ale, great example of the style, easy-drinking! alexanderj (3605) - Branson, Missouri, USA - FEB 3, 2009
This was a bit of a dissapointment for me. On tap at Solana Beach. Color was reddish brown with an off white head. Aroma of caramel, fruit, yeast and flowers. Flavor was where the surprise came in, as it just was not great and almost seemed like it was off or something. More yeast like notes instead of nutty maltiness. Maybe I’ll try it again. jimbowood (1036) - Freeport, Georgia, USA - JAN 4, 2009
Draft @ PP Carlsbad under the heading Wee Heavy Scottish, but close enough. Nice, substantial, malty, and nutty. Very nice. Theis (15151) - Frederiksberg, DENMARK - OCT 30, 2008
Draught at GABF 2008. Clear amber - offwhite head. Roasted, caramel, knækbrød, thin body, berries, raisins, nutty, thin finish. Boring.

Loads of rich malt flavor. A very sweet beer. Faint subtle hoppiness, not much else. Brown sugar and toffee, sweet roasted notes in the nose. Interesting, just not my cup of tea. hopscotch (11246) - Vero Beach, Florida, USA - SEP 3, 2008
Draft... RBSG... This beer rocks!... Beautiful, clear, dark copper ale with a small, creamy, white head. Big caramel and light milk chocolate in the aroma. Full-bodied and fatty with lazy carbonation. A slight nod toward the sweet side of balance. Loads of caramel malt kept in check by earthy, herbal hops. Lengthy, crisp, mildly acrid finish. World class Scottish ale! bb (9789) - Alamo, California, USA - AUG 20, 2008
Draft. Bronze beer with an off-white head. Caramel malt aroma with a bit of background smoke/spice (?). Caramel, earthy flavor. Medium body. Caramel malt lingers with some earth. yespr (47581) - Copenhagen O, DENMARK - AUG 6, 2008
From tap at Solana Beach. Pours clear and cobber brown wit a lacing white head. Spiced and light breadish malt aroma. Flavour is liqourice and roasted malt. Nice and flavourful. Lingering spiced and liqourice hops finish. dalekliz (925) - New Jersey, USA - MAR 8, 2008
On tap at Port Solana, shared with WeeHeavySD. Reddish-amber with a light, quickly fading head. Sweet aroma of malt. Flavor is also sweet malt, and I tasted a hint of sourness. Light lingering bitterness. Tasty overall.
