COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Limited Release. 100% Scottish Maris Otter malt was used in the brewing. The combination of the scottish malts and slow aging process produces a unique brew as distinctive as single malt whiskey with a subtly different taste than any other beer. Look for a sweet malty taste with a backround of floral notes from english fuggle hops. To not be confused with the Scotch Ale that Saranac sells.

Not quiet as special but it is unique. Bit too flat, not really exceptional in taste or palate.

Scottish 60/- style. Slightly sweet. Not much by way of hops or aroma. Thin and boring. Still a drinkable session or "convert to good beer" beer.

I liked it but expected more from it. Saranac needs to quite worrying about mainsteam beer drinkers and make something that stands out in every kind of there beers.

Sort of a light amber with a small head and a sweet malty nose. Light but malty flavor. As with most Saranac beers, too weak to be a contender.

Dark golden color, subtle dry malty taste. Thin.

Bottle- I was expecting more from this beer based on the description on the bottle. It’s actually quite bland and boring.

2.5
Drew (2411) - Kent, Ohio, USA - NOV 16, 2002
Sweet, doughy malt with some hop finish. Nice and smooth, but could be thicker

Big fuggle nose. Pasteurization is big on the palate. A bit sweet and bland.

3.7
UnionMade (621) - Connecticut, USA - SEP 22, 2002
Surprisingly light and refreshing. Not typical of a scottish ale. The malt is sweet and very mild, with very subtle hops in the background. I like this stuff a lot, even though I was expecting something much heavier. One of Saranac’s better brews.

3.3
Hopistotle420 (1178) - Amherst, Massachusetts, USA - SEP 13, 2002
reddish golden. White head slightly diminishing, with some lacing. Bready malty aroma. A little earthiness. Malty sweetness first, enjoyable. Earthy textures, light to medium bodied, with some hoppiness in the finish. Nice earthy notes, i feel this is fairly well rounded, i just wish it had some more flavor, and some more body.
