Served on tap before a husker game at Lazlo's (the Empyrean affiliated brew pub).
A dark yet clear amber color. More carbonation than I would have liked. The beer came with absolutely no head. I don't know if the bartender messed up or if this is how the beer is supposed to be poured. Appearance wise this is not what I was expecting. Smells of sweet roasted malt and caramel. Tastes pretty much exactly like it smells--- sweet roasted malt and caramel. Dry finish. Overall I thought this beer was a poor representation of the style, but was still a decent brew.
Serving type: on-tap

Clear light copper color with a small off-white head that turns to just a skin quickly but hangs around and leaves some decent lacing.
The Aroma is caramel malt with a hint of warm bread.
The taste is also light caramel malt with hints of peat smoke and a bit of fruitiness - apple, I think.
Light-medium bodied, smooth and easily drinkable.
Altogether a bit light on the "Scottish" style but a nice enjoyable brew on it's own merits.

Sampled back on 11/3/13. Chilled down to 36 degrees F in my beer cooler and poured into a brandy snifter.
Pours a nice copper in color with a small off-white head. Lots of lacing was seen with each sip. Perfect carbonation. The aroma is of roasted malts with some caramel sweetness. Very pleasant. The taste was even better than the aroma actually with a touch of smoke. Very easy to drink and no harsh bitter aftertaste.
