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 :) (449 characters)

Extremely thin, no nose, and little character in general. Just a very thin and weak beer. Not a fan. (100 characters)

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!! (291 characters)

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. (354 characters)

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. (585 characters)

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. (401 characters)

Unfortunately the restaurant ran out of Anastasia, so I settled for this Scottish. Underwhelming - taste is reminiscent of Newcastle. (133 characters)

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. (461 characters)
