look: 4 | smell: 3 | taste: 3 | feel: 2.5 | overall: 3

Poured into a British pint. Special thanks to IrishColonial for bringing this one back from Chicago. Thanks, Eric!

A: Pours a murky brown color. A quarter finger of cream colored head with decent retention and lacing. Looks good.

S: Sweet biscuit roast, little bit of a grainy malt bill to it. Not too complex or strong. Very pedestrian smelling beer here, I would have guessed it was a brown ale.

T: Again, a thin, grainy sweet taste on this one, with the mildest of roasted malt on the back end. It's not bad, but I think it's too light a style and doesn't have enough bold malt presence. Certainly not what I would expect from Three Floyds based on what I've had from them before.

M: For a Scotch Ale, too thin. Carbonation is decent but the flavors lack depth and complexity.

O: Well, my review makes this look like a bad beer. It's not. In fact I think Three Floyds has made a very good Brown Ale here. It's light, sweet, and has just enough delicate roast to it that makes it highly quaffable. But I grade to style and Robert the Bruce misses the mark in that regard.
