The Church Street Scottish Ale is decent...but not spectacular. The beer poured a hazy brownish amber with very thin head that is not lacing. The scent had a nice maple flare and typical scottish push. The taste is a decent balanced beer with sweet malt base. The mouthfeel is no quite medium..but not light either. There is a smooth carbonation present. Overall the beer is a nice session beer.

Overall a solid Scottish Ale. Pours a deep copper, with just a tinge of light breaking through at the corners of the glass. Head in my pour was thin. I had to let it splash hard in the glass to get a .25 inch of head the quickly dissipated. Smell is full of pleasant malty, nutty aroma. Taste is malt dominated and has touch of caramel sweetness. Mouthfeel is perfect for the style in my opinion. Overall a average to above average Scottish.

12oz bottle, no freshness date
L - ruddy brown color with a tall greyish-tan head that holds good retention
S - weaker aroma, earthy with some caramel malt and bread
T - caramel, burnt caramel as well, spice, earth, tea, bread, yeast, faint chocolate, faint smoke, a bit medicinal especially on the finish
M - overly carbonated, medium body but very full feeling with all that carbonation, finishes dry
O - another disappointment from Church Street here. Seems to be a bit infected, flavors are muddled and just not that desirable. It's not terrible, but it's definitely not something I want to spend my money on.

I picked this up at the Pik - n - Go liquor store in Bloomingdale, IL. $6.99 for a six pack of 12oz brown bottles. This is a new local brewery that opened in 2012, so I'm looking foreword to trying my first beer from them. No freshness date.
The beer poured an iced tea color with a reddish tint to it - sort of like a raspberry iced tea. It only made a ½-finger of off-white head that lasted about a minute, and lacing was minimal.
It had a pleasant smell to it of roasted malts, chocolate, and sugar.
Roasted malt flavor with a touch of sweet caramel and chocolate. Tea-like hops provide a mild bitterness and good balance.
Medium body with moderate carbonation.
A very well made and tasty Scottish ale. This is my first taste of anything from this local brewery. Hope their other offerings are as good as this one.
