2.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
Poured from a can into a pint glass. Cloudy light brown with minimal cream colored foam. Dissipated quickly to a light film with a ring. Very little smell. I get a little malt but not much else. Taste is light almost washed out. There is some malt, caramel maybe hops but it is tough to tell. The carbonation is high and somewhat off putting. Very sharp and an assault to the tongue. Overall I didn’t really enjoy this beer
Shared from can into nonic half-pint glasses, thanks Jake! Near-opaque brown colour with beige foam, lasting with lace. Fantastic soft fruit aromas, better than flavour. Malty, just a little earty hop presence, mild bitterness, as is typical of this style. Cola, caramel, mellower than many American craft-brewed Scottish style ales. Light-medium body, moderate carbonation, lingering malty aftertaste. Good stuff. zoucrew102 (2046) - - SEP 30, 2017
Can. Rich caramel malt aroma with notes of cocoa, hazelnut and a hint of smoke. Pours deep caramel brown with a thin white head that has little retention and some lacing. Starts with with rich caramel malt and cocoa flavors. Finishes smooth with nutty character and just a little bit of smoke. Nice Scottish Ale. Panzuriel (2333) - Westerville, Ohio, USA - SEP 30, 2017

Nose: Rich caramel malty nose. Bready with a slight bitter edge.
Taste: Medium roasted malt forward, moderately sweet caramel. Lightly bitter finish
Body: medium to lighter with light carbonation.
Parting thoughts: a decent Scottish ale.

Pours brown with a beige head that faded very quickly. The aroma is a little more subdued, with toasted malt, caramel, raisin, nuts, and bread. The taste is dry and has a light bitterness found early in the sip. The flavor is more nutty than anything else, though the toasted elements are rather strong as well. Its mildly floral and has buttery hints, an unusual cola flavor, and caramel. The caramel serves as a short and weak finish. Light in body and with a thin texture. I found this to be rather bland.

Taste: roasted dark malts, cocoa, hazelnut,sweet toffee notes. Same with the nose. Dark brown, partly clear, with a delicate head and lace. Medium/full body. Clean finish.

It pours bronze with an off white head. It has a light body with mild carbonation. The taste has dry toffee, dried dates with light toast. Okay Scottish ale. sawbuck (755) - Round Lake, Illinois, USA - FEB 16, 2017

A pretty decent scottish ale. Darker than most. Chocolate and coffee. Some caramel and sweet bread. Picked this up at the Indy airport in 2016. kaser (6366) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - OCT 17, 2016
Dark reddish pour from 16oz can at Home. Carmel and malty flavor. Rich and full body. Not bad for the style
