Reviewing the Slainte Scottish Style Ale from Central Waters Brewing Company.
Score: 70

December 2011 vintage bottle served in a Surly Darkness snifter and enjoyed in the wee hours of 01/28/12.

Appearance: Deep, dark mahogency color with brown highlights at the top and ruby highlights in the lower half of the beer. Pours three-quarters of a finger of creamy khaki colored head. Settles almost entirely. Average lacing with solid cling. 3.5/5

Smell: Creamy malts and tiramissu. Hint of caramel, hint of vanilla, and some bready malt. Touch of rye? 3.5/5

Taste: Bready malts, nondescript malts and a little spice. Hints of vanilla. Stainless steel sweetness towards the finish. 2.5/5

Mouthfeel: Medium-light bodied, light carbonation. Creamy mouthfeel. 3/5

Overall: A below average Scottish Ale. Very disappointed given the mild hype behind this beer.

Recommendation: Skip this one. There are plenty of better beers in this style wherever you'll be able to find this one (e.g., Robert The Bruce)

Pairings: Caramel popcorn or a pastrami sandwich.

Cost: $8.99 for a six pack

Poured into pint glass

Appearance: Sláinte pours a dark brown with some blood red at the edges, especially when held to the light. It had an awesome three fingers worth of head that is khaki brown and is retained a fairly long time before it settles to a film on the beer. Lacing is light to moderate and carbonation does seem evident.

Smell: Upfront I smell a sweet malty beer. I am getting toasted bread, caramel and some smoke in there, too.

Taste: A bready toasted note with a sweet malty taste is the prominent flavors here. I'm also getting molasses and a brown sugar mixed with a finish of smoke and a slight bitterness.

Mouthfeel: Creamy feel to this one. It does go down easy and has a nice amount of carbonation that seems to help cut some of the sweetness. There is no note of the alcohol.

Overall: Not my favorite style I must admit but this one is enjoyable if you're in the mood for a rich, sweet, malty beer.
