Extremely thin, no nose, and little character in general. Just a very thin and weak beer. Not a fan.

Unfortunately the restaurant ran out of Anastasia, so I settled for this Scottish. Underwhelming - taste is reminiscent of Newcastle.

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.
