Scottish style brown ale my butt. Straight up malt liquor is more like it. But a good one. Heavy corn flavors. Dusty hops. Oxidized malts with bits of paper, metallic, medium caramels. Light lemon tang. The texture is well done -- effervescent and lightly creamy. No fusels nor apparent alcohol. Weird but solid. ryanfolty (2604) - Bourbon County, Minnesota, USA - JAN 17, 2012
Tap at Scottys on January 17, 2012. Translucent light brown with some head and spotty lacing. Aroma was mainly malty caramel but had some chocolate. Taste was similar to aroma but was mild and maybe a slight dry finish. boxofrane (2559) - Spring City, Pennsylvania, USA - NOV 15, 2013
Can. Pours clear brown with a small off white head that quickly dissipates The aroma has light caramel but is far from diverse or complex. The taste is sweet caramel, very basic. tmongoose (2504) - Louisville, Kentucky, USA - NOV 18, 2015
Pint can shared poured a light clear brown color with tan head. No lacing to speak of, the aroma is caramel malts with hints of chocolate malts slightly sweet malts. The flavor brings more of the same with the caramel and chocolate malts being predominate. Slightly sweet malts mild to medium body easy to drink. arkurzynski (2463) - Combined Locks, Wisconsin, USA - DEC 18, 2011
Can courtesy of motortoddhead. Deep brown red with fluffy off-white head. Toasted malt, light caramel, and a touch of plastic. Toasted malt, biscuit, grain, mild fruit punch, with a dry, lightly bitter finish. Pretty light on the palate.

Right down the middle Scottish to me. Pours a dark orange. Malt is everywhere you look. Roasted notes predominate here. Panzuriel (2371) - Westerville, Ohio, USA - SEP 30, 2017
Appearance: Darker red brown. Nearly opaque. Thin layer of small tan bubbles. Good lace
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.

Pint can courtesy of StFun – Thanks big J! Muddy brown with a one finger tan head that faded fast. The nose is caramel and faint chocolate. The taste is caramel, dark fruits and light cocoa. Medium bodied. Not great, but happy to try it – thanks again Josh! That1Guy (2237) - Colorado, USA - AUG 28, 2011
Pours a dark reddish-brown that some light gets through. Malty sweetness on the nose and in the flavor. Some subtle roastiness in the finish. Very easy to drink and pretty tasty. dcschiller (2211) - Scottsdale, Arizona, USA - OCT 5, 2013
can. Pours clear brown-mahogany color with a tan head. Aroma is caramel, dried pit fruit, and some chocolate. Taste is a little tart and sweet. Some light bitterness on the end. Ok.
