COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
It offers a finely wooded nose hinting at hazelnut, and is therefore distinct from traditional British scotches. It has a more rounded taste letting a discreetly full-bodied bitterness come to the fore, and will naturally seduce you.
Ingredients: Water, pale ale malt, caramel malt, aromatic malt, sugar, yeast, Kent hop, hallertau hop.

EnSiFeRuM (501) - Quebec, - APR 1, 2009
Bouteille de 330 ml. La bire est de couleur acajou surmonte dun col de mousse fauve qui simpose du dbut jusqu la fin de la dgustation. Au nez on dcouvre des armes de grain grill, de caramel brul, de sucre brun, de sel et de pain brun. En bouche le corps est rond avec une effervescence faible. On gote des saveurs de caramel sal, de toffee, de sucre brun, de grain grill et dalcool mtallique. Trop sucr.

LCI. Poured from the bottle. Nice sweet and malty scotch ale. Also a small bitter through the strong flavour of caramel. Not bad!

Scotch Ales can be somewhat imposing malt bombs. This approach from de Silly seems to be a bit more light-hearted. Brown color. It comes across with a feel thats more medium-bodied but still extremely smooth. Roasted grain and cocoa aromas. Fat malts and some fruitiness. Caramel, toast, chocolate, and succulent dark fruit flavors. Tasty.

November 21st, 2014 - With just a strip, or a mustache, of kilting pattern, Id hardly say this is silly. But the Scotch part is evident right from the pour, releasing the murky, muddy brew into the glass, and letting the head cling to the glass, even as it splashes around in the roiling aftermath of filling the glass. Given the style, and its tempestuous appearance, the aroma is lighter than expected, with a fresh Spring air smell, like a luxury version of Irish Spring soap, mixed with white wine and chardonnay. The flavor is brilliantly balanced, light, with a slight tang and a lot of stickiness. Red wine and white juice sugars blend together effortlessly, and brighten up with the addition of tartaric acid, resulting in a flavor similar to top quality maple syrup. Sticky but drinkable, this is a memorable Scotch Ale, and disappears quicker than expected.

jamaty (2081) - Madrid, SPAIN - JAN 18, 2017
Caoba, cremosa de espuma blanquecina abundante y poco duradera que deja pelcula. Aroma licrico con notas de madera y fruto seco. En boca buen punto de gas, rico sabor malteado, muy acaramelada y con recuerdos a crema de almendra. Alcohol bien disimulado, buen cuerpo y muy agradable.

umestre (41) - - NOV 12, 2016
Buena cerveza blanca de sabor dulce afrutado con un aroma muy agradable a bodega. Sabor dulce con toques albaricocque y frutas tropicales mezclando dulzor y un toque final aspero agradable. De aspecto muy limpio con poca turbidez de color burdeos oscuro y espuma cremosa pero no excesivamente abundante. Graduacion alcoholica elevada pero no parece q sea por un exceso de azucar algo habitual en cervezas belgas. Una buena cerveza para una tarde de libro y musica.

Medium low frothy tan head with low retention. Hazy reddish brown. Aroma is spicy (clove, nutmeg), drupe fruits (peach) and molasses. Taste is sweet with low bitterness, intense, toasted sugar (caramel) and sweet malty.

DocJitsu (1894) - Pensacola, Florida, USA - OCT 5, 2016
Pours a caramel amber with a light khaki head. Toffee and caramel nose. Starts more light on the palate, but becomes more heavy. Caramel flavor becomes increasingly sweet, but never becoming overly so. Flavor becomes richer after a moment on the palate. Finishes as sweet as it becomes. The bitterness, again, subdued, increases along with the sweetness.

Gluepot (578) - Ottawa, Ontario, CANADA - OCT 5, 2016
A soft off-white head with excellent lacing. The body is dense and opaque. Colour is a rich chocolate caramel. The nose features caramel and berries. This is a top notch euro scotch ale. The carmel body is smooth and rich. There are touches of banana from the yeast and blackberries. this is not my favourite approach to a scotch ale - I prefer roasted malt, more nuts and a touch more hops in the background. But this is extremely well crafted.
