A- deep amberesque, almost Kodachrome in its beauty.

S- heavenly, flowers tickiling my nose, a wafting of spice.

T- pleasing, very pleasing. Fruits, malts, perfection in a brew. Superb for sipping, no bitter aftertaste, clean finish.

M- smoooth.

O- one of my favorites from Three Floyd's. But with 3F it's difficult not to love their creativity. Excellent brew all the way around.

Of all the scottish ales i have had tue pleasure of trying this is by far the best. It has a beautiful caramel color with a lovely lick head. Once you smell this beer you will be yurning to get a taste. The powerful and almost overwhelming taste is so good that i could drink it daily.
Absolute best scottish style ale

I went out looking for gumballhead. I couldn't find it. So being a fan of Scottish Ale I purchased this guy.


A robustly malted brew with a oak woody after taste.

I drank it right from the bottle so my appearance review is not alcohale

Not sure of the acohhale content, but three made me dizzy.

Good flavor chuck for of malt, but not near the end of the spectrums extreme.(Imperial Stout)

Also beer is very refreshing after a hard day at the office.

Loved this beer a long time now - surprised I haven't taken a chance to review it yet. Wish I could get it on tap around here, but the bottle will do. Poured into a pint glass.

Appearance: Lovely rich brown shade with massive red and gold highlights. Low clarity in the liquid, with bits of sediment here and there and bubbles of carbonation. 2 finger tan head fades and holds at a skim, leaving behind ample sticky lacing.

Smell: Huge sticky, chewy caramelly malt aromas with some dark fruit sweetness like raisins and dates. Smells really good, but missing that hallmark smokey peatiness that I typically find in this style. I know it's Scottish and not Scotch, but there's still usually a little to be had.

Taste/Mouthfeel: Ah, there's the peat - slight smoky peat flavors creep out amongst really sweet, chewy, caramelly malts and dark sticky fruity tastes. A notable hop profile comes across in a slightly bitter citrus taste that balances out the sweetness and compliments the very well carbonated feel. I love the effervescence - it lends a sort of creaminess to this well-bodied and full-flavored beer. Stickiness remains awhile throughout the palate. Delicious. Best example of the style in the taste that I've experienced.

Drinkability: Very high. The flavors are very bold, but well-balanced and complimentary. I love Three Floyds, so there may be a little brand bias here, but I enjoy this beer more and more every time I have it. I"m surprised the overall score of this beer isn't higher - if you like Scottish Ales, one of my favorite styles, you'll love this beer.

After hearing so much about three floyds, and realizing that there are a few selections to try in my back yard, decided to start with this scottish ale.

A: Pours reddish brown with a light 1/2 inch head that settles quickly.

S: Hoppy scent, but not too overpowering.

T: Wow. Nice balance on this one. Hoppy, a slight roasted flavor, some sourness but mild and even a bit of sweetness.

M: Nice smoothness, warmness at the end.

O: great overall, very balanced scottish ale. Looking forward to moving along the FFF roster.

I'm finally starting to try more and more Scottish Ales and I'm learning to appreciate the style for what it is.

this brew pours up a nice dark brown color with a very thin tan head. the nose is a malt bomb! subtle chocolate, malt, malt, and more malt. WOAH! the taste is maltylicious! coffee, chocolate, caramel, subtle hop balance, medium to full body, low carbo. An awesome beer! Hands down!
