look: 3.5 | smell: 3 | taste: 4 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.5

a - a light reddish brown in pour with a nice-thick head, that quickly recedes to a half finger in depth...

s - bit metallic on the nose, bit a carmel & malt...

t - not sure of scottish ale, almost seems more like a brown ale with slight tendencies of scottish ale? reminded me somewhat of a new castle... malty presences mixed with nutty tones and a tinge of vanilla.. interesting..

m - slightly lighter than I would have expected in body, but this fact made it quite easy to drink - not sip... :)

o - very drinkable... my first from Sun King. I've an Osiris waiting...

look: 3.5 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 4 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.5

P: Drank straight out of a 16 oz can.

A: Have had this before in a glass. SRM is light/medium brown. Translucent and clear filtered. Head is off white/cream, puffy, 1 in, dissipates to line the top of the beer. Medium carbonation. Light/medium lacing.

S: Malty (medium roast), slight carmel notes. Smells slightly sweet and slightly nutty.

T: Much lighter than the smell, but medium roast malt and carmel tones still come through. Nut flavors are light but noticable. Balanced and easy drinking. Aftertaste is malty, slightly sweet, slightly nutty.

M: Medium body. Mf is reflective of ingredients. Light creaminess from the malt and toffee/carmel aspect. Robust quality comes from the light nuttiness of the brown ale component.

O: Easy drinking. Not huge flavors, but very well put together and very good at what it does, which is be an everyday drinker. Nice malt and carmel tones, nice touch of combining Scottish and Brown Ale components.

look: 4 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.5

A: Brown/crimson hue with a one-inch but steady head and decent lacing

S: Lots of sweet malts: toffee and caramel and bready perhaps as well as a grassy, herbal quality

T: Malt forward and not as sweet as aromas indicated; some earthy, grassy undertones--at times this fels closer to a brown than a scottish but it's still quite enjoyable

F: Medium body; though perhaps a touch thin on the back end

O: A decend canned Scottish ale; nothing that blows one away but it's a nice easy drinking beer nonetheless

look: 3 | smell: 2 | taste: 2 | feel: 2 | overall: 2.5

Poured from a can into a pint glass. Cloudy light brown with minimal cream colored foam. Dissipated quickly to a light film with a ring. Very little smell. I get a little malt but not much else. Taste is light almost washed out. There is some malt, caramel maybe hops but it is tough to tell. The carbonation is high and somewhat off putting. Very sharp and an assault to the tongue. Overall I didn't really enjoy this beer.

16 ounce can. Served in a nonic pint glass, the beer pours a clear copper/brown color with a half inch off-white head that went away quickly. There's a small amount of lacing left behind on the glass. The brew smells like toffee, nuts, and toasted malt. It tastes like toffee, nuts, peat, and caramel/toasted malt. Mouthfeel/body is low/medium, it's smooth and has moderate carbonation. It is pretty easy to drink. At $11.49 a 4-pack I wouldn't buy it again at that price, but I do think it's a brew that's worth trying.

My first experience with this brew, and my second ever from Sun King. Again, thanks to my buddy Matt for picking this up for me!

A: Pours a murky Brown, but it is a bit translucent. I can see the outline of my fingers on the other side of the glass. Poured a nice off-white head, a little less than a finger's worth, that dissipated quickly.

S: Faint notes of traditional sweet barley. There is not much to smell here.

T: Brown Ale meets Scotch Ale. The "sweetness" of scotch ale meets the dark nutty notes of a classic brown. All of which is down at a "moderate volume". And everything comes together here rather nicely to make a nice easy-drinking beer that has some enjoyable flavors.

M: Light and smooth, carbonation is a little low but plenty of very small bubbles keep things a bit lively. This beer finishes with a little bit of tongue-coating, as well.

D/O: A nice, simple, easy-drinking craft beer. Enjoyable.

4.05/5  rDev +13.4%
look: 4 | smell: 4 | taste: 4 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4

Clear copper color with two fingers of head that had good retention before settling to a thick cap. Moderate amount of lacing is left on the glass.

The aroma does not pack any surprises with its toffee malt aroma. A little earthiness as well.

The flavor is more interesting. The malt foundation is solid. Plenty of nuttiness with toffee and peat. I guess the brewer added cocoa and that to is detectable. Bitterness is low with the hops adding more earthiness.

Solid body for a beer with this ABV. The carbonation is well suited for the beer. The texture is silky smooth.

Nice to pick these cans up during recent travel. Tasty, low ABV beer in cans. Sweet.

3.78/5  rDev +5.9%
look: 4 | smell: 4 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 4 | overall: 4

Poured from 16oz can into imperial pint glass.
No canned-on date.

Aroma: Light, sweet carmelized sugar. Freshly-cut apple, followed by minty hops.

Appearance: Iced tea w/ a ruby tinge. Excellent clarity. 2 finger off-white head collapses slowly.

Flavor: Well-balanced Scottish ale flavor mirrors the aroma. Not cloying at all. Flavor profile is well balanced. No notable off-flavors, which are sometimes present in this style.

Mouthfeel: Medium-low body, but when enjoyed early on in a session, comes across as chewy and carmelly. Medium-low CO2.

Overall: Very sessionable, tasty Scottish Ale. As I got further and further into it, though, it came across as being slightly more watery than I prefer in this style. A pretty decent attempt, though, by Sun King.
