Pours a cloudy amber with little head. What head is there is an eggshell or ecru. Aroma of popcorn is here with a sugary sweetness.The nice hop bitterness balances the sweetness appropriately. Tasty but not worthy going out of the way for. Overall, a good beer, but if looking for a good example of the style, there are better options.

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.

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.

slow poured from bottle at 34 degrees with little to no head. Deep mahogany color, transparent and not cloudy.

smells sweet - can't put my finger on it - brown sugar or very ripe oranges or something food like and sweet.

Taste has a heavy odd bitterness I don't care for, sort of tar or nail polish or hair spray like.... ...not that I've consumed any of those, I'm just imagining... Other than that there are many good flavors... ..cantaloupe?.... ...some sort of dark sweet flavors and spices I again cannot place. Maybe nutmeg and pepper.

The mouthfeel is very good, that head that wasn't wasted on the top was saved inside of the beverage, making the sips very appealing.

The body of this brew is fairly decent, I like more hefty beers and this is supplying just enough heftiness.

Overall this is a good brew. Different. They did a good job of picking various flavors to bring out a unique beverage, which is becoming so difficult to do among the many many competitors. Recommended? I'm not sure. I guess it depends. it would be a great "I want to go out on a limb and try something different, and I'm in a store with this right in front of me" brew. I don't think I'd go looking for it, and I don't think it would be the end-all "I'm looking for a great scotch ale, this may be it" choice.

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.
