Growler from the brewery. Pours a deep amber with a thin white head. Malty aroma with subtle floral and citrus notes. Big malt and caramel flavors with a hint of citrus at the finish. Medium carbonation and body. Nice session beer. cbfobes (2883) - Quad Cities, Illinois, USA - JUL 4, 2012
Poured from 16oz can, pours a clear light brownish red with a thin white head and no lacing, the aroma is very sweet with a hint of scotch, the front end of the flavor is strong in the malt with some caramel in the finish, very sweet but it works for this one, nice.

Given to me from some friends from Indy in a 32 oz growler. Definitely easy drinking. Rich in malt characteristics. Not overly sweet. Caramel and nut brown flavors. A bit of spice. Color is a medium dark brown. Rich off white head. I’m a fan. Admittably I just played golf and I’m thirsty as hell, but right now this tastes great. impaleyou (24) - Indiana, USA - FEB 27, 2013
Good sweet aroma. Very smooth drinking beer. Sweet smooth flavor. Good for those that are new to craft beer. 48FanInCali (851) - California, USA - APR 29, 2013
Tall boy can. Maple ruby pour decent head not a lick of retention. If Scottish Ales are Wee Heavy Lights then this is a Scottish Ale Light. Light on peat, malt, and caramel but still tastes pretty good.

16oz can courtesy of StFun (5.3% AVB) pours with a crystal clear amber body and copper hues with a fairly week light tan head. The aroma offers up earthy prunes, cherry meat and Skittles candy as well as molasses and thin ribbons of caramel malts. This smells pretty fruity. The taste delivers a mix of prunes and cherries and sweet malts mixed with molasses and caramel. It gets a bit earthy with malts about midway and evens out nicely into the finish. madvike (3251) - Middleton, Wisconsin, USA - JUN 23, 2015
On draft at the happy hour of the Staybridge Suites I was staying at (!). Pours dark brown with a bit of tan head. Nose is caramel and light toasted bready malt. Taste is the same--mostly dry but with enough caramel to balance it out and make it super smooth. Nice medium body that doesn’t get in the way yet gives it enough heft. Decent stuff--could drink a lot of this and not realize it. 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. DavoleBomb (1867) - Pennsylvania, USA - JAN 16, 2016
Poured into a snifter.
3.25 A: Clear deep amber light brown color. One and a half fingers of nitro-esque beige head. Retention is below average and no lacing is left.
3.75 S: Nutty and toasty from the start like a good brown ale. Caramel and brown sugar. Crisp, clean maltiness. On the drier side, but still enough sweetness to hit the spot.
3.75 T: Like the nose this is crisp, clean, and tasty. Plenty of toastiness and caramel. Nuttiness underneath, dry grainy maltiness. Not as rich or as sweet as most of the style out there, but I don’t think it’s supposed to be. It works quite well for what it is.
3.75 M: Lighter medium body. Good moderate carbonation. Lightly creamy and super smooth.
4.0 D: Super drinkable with a good taste.

A-pours a clear ruby red color with orange edges, a white head with little retention and no lace.
S-the nose is light, toasted bread, a touch of grain, sweet caramel, herbal hops in the back.
T-a toasted breadiness right up front, slightly grainy with notes of toffee in the middle. some sweet dark fruits blend in at the back with notes of tropical fruity hops to finish off.
M-very light body but smooth on the palate, good carbonation to hold the feel throughout and a clean soft finish.
D-easy drinking and tasty, nothing huge but a good balance and flavor profile.
