My first Oska Blues try. I had not tried a Scottish ale before, so I can't compare it to other Scottish ales. A nice deep brown color with a finger of foam. A great butterscotch, caramel flavor with a manly finish. A little on the sweeter side also. I'll definitely be buying this beer again and again.

Picked up a six-pack for $9 at Ye Ole. Pour great, beautiful looking wee heavy that has an awesome strong smell that gets a wow out of me. Taste is as good as the smell, absolutely wonderful beer that I sucked down, did not seem to be 8%. Overall a great beer and when you consider the value due to cost it is as good as it gets. Will be a regular buyer.

Canned 9/24/13. Dark brown pour with a dark ruby cast. Massive head and lasting lacing. Light nose of malt - sweet, chocolate, biscuit. Heavy medium bodied with normal carbonation. The mouthfeel is almost slick. The taste profile is every flavor of malt available. Very well balanced between the malt variants with just a hint of alcohol. The flavor isn't as pronounced as Founder's Dirty Bastard, but this one is outstanding. The finish is smooth with a slight alcohol kick on the roof of the mouth that lingers

Poured from the can into a Stone tulip glass. Dark brown color with plenty of light and ruby highlights coming through when held to the light. Light tan head with fairly good head retention and filmy lacing on the glass.

Smell is fairly mild. Malty and some toffee. Taste is more of the same with some raisin thrown in. Not too sweet. Flavors are just right.

Mouthfeel is rich and smooth. Not a hint of alcohol. Goes down very easy.

Definitely one of the better Scottish Ales.
