Draft at GABBF 2012. Murky brownish amber. Aroma of caramel. Taste is butterscotch with a bitter finish. Not bad. jercraigs (10592) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - SEP 11, 2008
2008-09-06. Deep ruby tinged brown body with a small tan head. (3+) Flavour has a good sweet malt base with earth character and touches of sugar, alcohol. Surprisingly amount of bitterness is okay, but not what I look for in a scotch ale. (6+) Mild malt aroma has an earth character that foreshadows the same in the flavour. (6+) Average palate is adequate but thin for my preference. On tap at the brewpub.

[1668-20080906] Tap. Sweet honeyed malt aroma has a bit of caramel. Clear, dark brown red body with a quick bubbly light tan head. Caramel malt and roasted sweet leaves flavour. Medium-full body. A little rough but so was the man, I hear.

Had on tap at the Resurection Roadhouse in Seward, Alaska. Dark amber appearance, with frothy, off white bubby head. Toasty, nutty aroma - very sweet. Flavor has some caramelly sweet notes with some candied sugar notes in the back end. Very malty, like a Scottsih Ale should be. Alcohol hidden well. A decent Scottish Ale for a brewpub. Smoooth mouthfeel. Look forward to visiting them later this week in Anchorae, AmEricanbrew (6878) - Same Trailer, Different Park, Louisiana, USA - AUG 12, 2013

On draft at the brewpub 7/6/05: Brown beer. Smooth malt with an undertone of sweet sugar and sharp finish. Drinkable, but not a "scottish" to be sure. nearbeer (5463) - Knoxville, Tennessee, USA - MAY 15, 2011
UPDATED: MAY 20, 2011 Draft at Humpy’s in ANC. Deep, dark with a small film of bubbles that try. Nose is cocoa and orangey-caramel. Flavor is similar with maybe a hint of earthy smoke, but I may have just been wishing, Medium body is watery, drinkable and well-balanced. BrewDad (5328) - Olympia, Washington, USA - APR 1, 2012
Reddish Amber in color, clear with a thin head. Nice balance light earth like qualities. Good balanced flavors with a light extra bittering from the hops. Sweet in taste with a dry finish. SHIG (4962) - Wasilla, Alaska, USA - JUL 2, 2012
Draft: Poured a burnt orange brown with a white to off white head. Aroma is sweet malts. Taste is toffee, caramel malt, and nice hoppy blend that feels sweet but balanced. jsquire (4525) - St. Marys, Ohio, USA - JAN 28, 2006
On tap at the 06 Great Alaska Beer and Barley Wine Festival. Murky dark amber color with a foamy tan head that quickly dissapates to a ring. Roasted grain nose with some hints of something I’ll call leather. Malty beer with some ripe plum, dark sugar and an almost burnt grain roastiness.
