I enjoyed this offering. The day I visited they also had a Bourbon Aged Plaid Ferret Scottish Ale which was far better, deserving a rating easily into the >4.0 range. Beer advocate has yet to add this one to the list of beers to review, but if your there and they have it on tap, try it!!

Pint from the taproom.
A: Pours a copper red, small tan tinged head, not a ton of lacing, but then again, most of his beers are a little lacking in retention.
S: Earthy English hop, toast, caramel, and a light breadiness. A slight whiff of butterscotch.
T: Follows the aroma, minus the butterscotch. Very nice earthy hop presence.
M: Creamy, medium body, finishes clean. Nice.
O: Easy drinking beer, not offensive in any way. Good stuff here :)

On tap at Weasel Boy this past weekend.
Pours a dark brown with a good tan head and a bit of lacing on the way down. Nose brings forth caramel and a faint nuttiness and a bit of an earthy character plus some hops in the background. Flavor features caramel, toffee, toast, and a nice bit of hops. Medium body with good carbonation. Solid brew all around.

This is an extremely quaffable ale. It has a nice amber color. This is unfiltered so there is a little cloudiness in the glass which I like because it creates that mystery wondering whether it is a beer that might have that extra surprise of flavor that is unexpected. A nice head with some lacing left on the glass after tasting.
This is a pretty straight forward beer with nice caramel, some yeastiness with some underlying complexity creating a longer finish that you might expect. There is a very good mouth feel and good balance. The hops are integrated and the finish is one of the cleanest I've had with a Scottish. It is a surprise because many of the Scottish ales I've had go over the top with the IBU's in your face. This one has the hops on the mid-palate but the finish is exceptional.

This was the best beer I tried during my visit to Weasel Boy with Jabier. On the sampler, this was the first beer I tried that lacked the crisp dortmunder malt characteristic I've described in the Ornery Otter blonde, River Mink amber, and even the White Weasel White. Missing that characteristic was a good thing, as I was starting to think that this might be a flaw endemic to the brewery itself. This beer was different; malty, peaty, true to style and nice.

Pours a very nice copper color with a bit of head and some nice lacing. Great malty scent, fairly heady, although with no detectable peat scent (which isn't that bad, this is a scottish ale, not a scotch ale). Very nice taste, too, hints of caramel, a little bit of jerky flavor (british hops maybe), a great malty-sweet taste to it. It's extremely smooth and goes down great, with a wonderful finish.

My crew and I from "Dunkles & Jaffa Cakes" were eager to try this newcomer to the Columbus Microbrewery Fest.
Brewmaster Jay Wince eagerly greeted us and engaged us in a wonderful display of salesmanship and genuine love of his products and the "work" we do for our internet viewers.
The Plaid Ferret pours up a nice head and keeps its head (good thing if your not facing the guillotine) over a nice dark Muskingum River looking color.
Yum yum, it smells nicely of malt and hops! I smell a winner! The roasted malt jumps up on the front and the bittering hops linger
into a nice long finish. There are some toffee and coffee undertones with light caramel hints - but this is a very crisp and refreshing brew.
It too is a little thin (a tad watery) like it's brother the Weasel Boy River Mink Mild Brown Ale. It "IS" another good beer from the 2 month old brewery!
I look forward in helping Jay and his wife grow their business in the only way a true beer lover can...by drinking their brews!

Tried this on-tap at the North Market Microbrew Festival in Columbus. Poured a dark caramelly color with a nice, foamy white head. Pretty good retention; left a bit lacing on the pint glass. Smells and tastes of slightly toasted malt, caramel. Hints of the hop bitterness, but overall very well balanced. Nice, clean finish. Appropriate mouthfeel for a Scottish Ale: not too watery, but not super thick like a stout. Overall, a great session beer. I'm always a fan of Scottish Ales, and I'm happy to see another one brewed in Ohio! Hope to see this offering on-tap in more places soon.
