A - Dark brown brew with subtle transparency. Short white head. Some lacing.

S - Malty nose, with roasted grains.

T - Follows the nose with a smack of hop, and a toasted element.

M - Easily drinkable, with very little sign of the ABV.

O - A very solid entry, a nicely balanced drinker that packs a wallop.

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

12 oz. bottle, with no apparent bottled on date present. My second beer from Cutters Brewing Co., acquired as part of a mixed six pack at the local Binny's.

Poured into a clear balloon snifter.

A - Pours a thick amber-caramel colored body; reddish-mahogany in the glass with about a finger of khaki head that goes down quick. Some spotty lacing. Looks okay.

S - Hm, the smell is a bit strange, and not entirely enticing. Almost a sour / acidic green apple sort of aroma comes out. Caramel malt and dark vinous fruits are noted. Vinous and vinegary smelling at times.

T - Taste follows the nose - bready caramel malt, some acidic / tart green apple, dark fruits - raisin, fig, dates. Earthy, herbal tea-leaf presence is noted.

M - Feel is smooth and creamy. Lightly thick and syrupy. Medium-full bodied with low carb.

Overall, it's okay, but definitely nothing special. I suppose it grew on me the more I drank it, but it's really a below-average example of the style. Worth a try though, and I look forward to trying more from these guys.

Cutters Brewing Floyd's Folly ---3/5.

12 oz. bottle poured into a craft pint.

A- Brown, golden amber highlight. Light tan head doesn't retain well, and there is no lacing.

S- Caramel notes. Some slight vanilla. Sweet bread. No roast, and there isn't really a detectable hop character, which is good.

T- Sweet. Caramel. A little fruity. Slight roast in flavor.

M- Medium-full body. Very smooth. Sweet roasty finish.

O- Impressive. There was a slight fruity character in the flavor that seemed a little off/ out of style, but still a solid brew.

Microbrewer in Avion, Indiana let's give it a go!!! Pours almost blood orange crimson brown, definite ruby highlights when held toward the light. Aroma has some dirty malt, just a touch of Wheaties mixed with hints of cardboard box, added to that is some cooling fresh baked browines. A slight underlying dark plum juiciness exceeds out of the complexity of this 8% Scottish Ale. Heavy cereal grains, layered dark chocolate, quite a messy malt driven complexity with more wet cardboard and uneven lost in translation carbonation carrying it across the palate. A very rough abrasive beer, I hate to say that but that's what I'm getting thus far. It goes from smooth roasty to acrid acidic with a linger wet cardboard off putting note that I can't erase from my memory. Overall the harsh mouthfeel weak carbonation isn't expressive of the whole picture, there's a good beer somewhere here, preserve what you have and get through the rough patches of starting a brewery in 2010 not the best beer yet, but there's potential in the glass.
