look: 4.25 | smell: 2.5 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3 | overall: 3.5

Pours a gorgeous red brown with a light haze and scant light tan head, settles to a non-sticky ring... generally appropriate for Scottish ale in my experience.

Aroma is malt, toffee with a little wet golden retriever. A spicy note (Fuggles hops?) and dates as it warms

Good solid malty backbone, hops totally appropriate to the style (not noticeable, other than a hint of spiciness in the aftertaste). Nothing off, not a lot going on compared to iconic Scottish ales. Then again, what is the chance of finding peat in Tuscon.

Mouthfeel seems oddly watery given the decent malt backbone and the huge sweetness.

Overall a decent Scot. The aroma and mouthfeel are the weak points, but neither is "bad" or out of bounds for the style, just there are other beers in the style I prefer. Not a style I drink frequently, and I can think of a couple in the style I'd grab over Rojo if my wallet was willing, but really not a bad brew at all.
