When poured, this beer had a small sized ivory head that contained fine-large sized bubbles that mostly dissipated.The body was clear and uncarbonated with a orange hue.The nose was lightly malty and moderately hoppy and sweet.The flavor was bitter tasting from start to finish along with a tingly and smooth mouthfeel and it was light-medium bodied.

A-Clear amber, not much carbonation and some lacing.

S-Very malty, some dark fruits, dirt and grass, similar to a bock.

T-rather malty, dark fruits, plums and some grass.

M-Lighter, not much carbonation, on the watery side.

O-The lighter scotch ales always seem to disappoint, a malty mess that is too watery.

Pours copper orange with thick ivory head that yielded a little sticky lace on the Hop & Rye glass. Dominated by caramel aroma, starts sweet and finishes sweet with a hint of bready malt and light hops, medium bodied, dextrinous mouthfeel. Low carbondation from the cask conditioning. Sampled at September Hop in the City.

A nice amber-brown color, clear, with a so-so head and some lacing.

Smelled of caramel malts and fruits with a touch of hops in the background.

Taste wise it's pretty good stuff, especially for a style that's been really hit or miss for me. Plenty of caramel malt comes through, along with some graininess and a touch of citrus.

The body is light and slightly slick, quite easy to drink, and somewhat dry. Reminds me of newcastle, only better. Very sessionable.

Pours a clear, amber color. 1/3 inch head of a white color. Great retention and great lacing. Smells of sweet malt, slight yeast, hint of hops, and earthy malt. Fits the style of a Scottish Ale. Mouth feel is smooth and clean with an average carbonation level. Tastes of strong earthy malt, slight sweet malt, slight yeast, and slight hop. Overall, an average scottish ale with a great appearance.

A decent looking Scottish ale that is amber-bodied and topped by a lovely ivory head and nice lacing. A typical Scottish ale this one tends to be a bit sweet in the start and the finish, but does have a nice light hopping to balance the malt to a substantial degree.

The feel is a bit mild and watery, owing as much, I suspect to the balance as it is to the carbonation and lightness of body. An enjoyable ale nonetheless and one I'd never be fearful of recommending.

Nuttin’ much better than a good fresh beer on tap – and this is one of them.

Clear caramel brown, topped nicely with a creamy ivory head – sheets laces all the way down. Nose was kinda lite, just some lite malty tones with a pop of cooked bread from the toaster.

Rich bready quaff, still balanced well with a hoppy push, even some woody notes in there. Reminds me of a Vienna lager. Lite to medium bodied, this is a tasty toasted brew – pop one on tap if you can.

Happy Birthday Schlafly, served in a snifter. Beer is brown with a haze, lazy thin tan head, no lacing, low carboantion.

Caramel malts in here. Very nice aroma I have to say.

Beer is a little flat, boring, sweet and not much else with a mild grainy aftertaste. Not my favorite beer from Schlafly or my favorite Scottish, I'll avoid this one in the future, smelled good though.

like this a lot, id say more of an english pale ale than a scottish, but what the hell do i know right? the pour is white headed and sexy amber, bubbly for a cask dispense, and smelling yummy like english caramel malts, soil, and wood. the flavor is a lot like odells version ten digits higher, its got the same malt profile for sure. i love that this is lower alcohol (somewhere in the 4s), and highly sessionable due to the great cask smooth feel, and fuller body. light on booze, heavy on flavor. touch of spice on the finish, enjoy it a lot, great with the pub fries and spicy ketchup, works for me, especially in the fall.

Enjoyed at the brewpub in St Louis, reviews from notes.

A: half finger head with nice lacing on a clear amber body.

S: burnt toast, candied citrus, caramel and toffee.

T: brown sugar, roasted malts, breads, rye and caramel

M: medium body and moderate carbonation.

Overall: interesting and nice variability for the style. I could have this one regularly.

Dark hazy reddish-copper color with a thick off-white head that sticks to my glass. Bready and caramel aromas, starts sweet and creamy with a hint of caramel, medium bodied, nice full and round mouthfeel, finishes smooth and clean with a lingering sweetness, not bad.
