Recieved as a joke sort of I guess from the shotgun BIF. I had really never had much from them, but being this is one of my favorite styles what the heck right? Served cold and poured into a pint glass, this one was consumed on 08/30/2009.

The pour was off from the start, small tan head which faded almost instantly was replaced by only the slightest bit of lacing on the sides of the glass, which itself faded momentarily leaving behind only a bare, brown liquid. Aroma was a mess, wet carbonard, hints of caramel were muted and astringent. A touch of tannic flavors welcomed me, or scared me away, It was just all over. Watery flavor, thin and flat feel, nothing redeeming it at all. Small touch of caramel, maybe at the end of it, but really just shocked by how off this one was. No sign of alcohol or depth in the body.

Overall the worst scotch ale I have ever had. I am really shocked to be honest as well. It was just all over the place and way too thin for the style. I was expecting average but did not even get that. Not sure whats going on but I would not go here again.

From a 12 oz. bottle with IBU and OG info (nice) but no freshness date. A murky dark orange with a thin instantly dissipating head despite an aggressive pour into a snifter. The aroma was pleasant but faint; some ripe orange and sweet malt.

Whatever flavor there was tasted watered down. Some grainy sweetness, some bitter in back, dry finish. Just thin and lacking in character. I expected more body from a "Scotch Style" as well, but this offering from the Seattle brewpub just didn't have the stones to earn the title. I lifted the kilt and didn't find anything there!

Highly dissapointed in this one...thin...fizzy...lacks peat...lacks maltiness...has almost a fruity sourness...very unremarkable drinking experience. I would never buy this one again...perhaps it's old but we got it from Liquid Solutions and I assume they only ship fresh beer..even if it is old a 6.6% Scotch should hold up better...tangy tasting...just not at all what I expected....light orange color....nose almost smells like a barnyard...tart on the finish...not very good at all
