Purchased at the brewery.

16oz. Can poured into a tulip.

A: Pours a ruby tinted amber with great clarity. Medium head on the pour with only a bit of retention but decent lacing.

S: Great Scottish aroma. Malty but not too sweet. A touch of almost wheat aroma. Somewhat dry.

T/M: Great maltiness, smooth and not too sweet. Great Scottish flavor and nice yeast. Maybe the slightest hint of hops? Body is medium with smooth carbonation.

D: Very drinkable. A fantastic example of the style. Probably about 60, while Robert The Bruce is about an 80 with some hops... Very different from each other but this one is probably better. Impressive.

Had this on tap at MacNivens in Indianapolis

Appearance: Carmel color with a very nice head which stuck to the glass.

Smell: Malt up front, with a soft hint of hops following behind it.

Taste: Very malty, but with a crispness that cuts through.

Mouthfeel: I was expecting this to be a wee bit heavier on the pallate than it was, but it was perfect for drinkability

Drinkablility: This beer is definitely sessionable to my pallate.

Also had this at Hal's Vegas Bar and Grill in Greenwood, IN.

Before I write this, I admittedly am a hophead, and malty beers are not my favorite.

Poured a dark cherry mahogony, with nice tan frothy lacing.

Smells of roasted malts, very smokey. Very aromatic.

Intial tastes of the roasted malt, tobacco was in the background. Great mouthfeel,smoothe and mellow. Noticable hops, more so than most Scottish Ales I've had. Nicely carbonated with just enough bite. The more I sip, the more complex this tastes.

Sun King is 2 for 2! I could drink this beer all the time. Id really like to pair it with a cigar, and help bring out all those tobacco flavors hiding behind the malt. Im not sure I would call this a Scottish Ale, but call it what you want, it's fantastic. Sun King, please make your way to South Bend.
