Great story on the creation of this brewery - WWI Scottish soldiers asked a Belgium brew master to brew some Scottish ale and the rest is history .

Served from a .75 liter bottle into a tulip glass.

A - Beautiful clear reddish brown with lots of heady froth that dissipates rapidly in to full top and side lacing. .

S - Dark fruit, yeast, mineral and sweet malt

T - Excellent! no hoppy bitterness, just malt and dark fruit, yeast. Finishes with balanced medium sweet and bitterness.

M - So smooth and mellow. No alcohol bite. Low carbonation.

O - One of my new regular's - bought on a whim but happy I did. Will buy again. Noted that there was what seemed to be dried yeast on the bottom of the inside of the bottle after I poured the last drop but no strange taste or smell. If anyone has experienced this aspect with other beers I would be happy to hear it.

Scotch Silly has a thin, fizzy, off-white head, and a milk-chocolate brown appearance, with rather large tan chunks suspended throughout. The aroma is of sweet, rich, pungent, brandywine, and dark bread. The flavor is equally rich, with even a strange or interesting citrus aspect in the back-taste. Bitterness is low, and sweetness is high. Mouthfeel is between medium and heavy, and Scotch Silly finishes not so dry and delicious. Booziness is not an issue with this beer. Just a great, great beer!

look: 4 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 3.75

Appearance: clear red / brown with a medium sized off-white head that marks the glass nicely.

Aroma: malty, bready, some coffee-like notes but very subtle. A lot of caramel, and I think I smell a small sour note, typical for some belgian ales. Also it has a delicate touch of dust, and maybe some roastiness, but again - they're very subtle.

Taste: very sweet. Toffee, caramel, a bit roastiness and a little bit fruity. A small, almost untraceable alcohol note in the background. Mild alcohol bitterness.

Moutfeel: full bodied, soft carbonation.

Overall: a very enjoyable beer, although it's not my favourite style.
