look: 4.5 | smell: 3.25 | taste: 4 | feel: 4 | overall: 4

Poured from bottle into pilsner glass. Phat Tuesday celebration prior to sacrificing beer for Lent.

A - Light brown with a great head and lacing trailing all the way down the glass.

S - Subtle malty sweet.

T - Effervescent malt: Not overwhelming, but not disappointing - just right.

Overall: I love this beer. Hibernator might be a slight exaggeration in the sense that this really isn't a "heavy" beer, but, it is most satisfying. Strong enough for winter but light enough for spring.

3.18/5  rDev -13.1%
look: 4 | smell: 2.75 | taste: 3 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 3.5

Bottled 8/25/13. Cute graphic of a bear sitting at a fireside smoking a pipe and reading a newspaper.

Poured from the 12 oz. bottle into a plastic cup.

a: Clear copper with an inch tall offwhite head which receded to rocky surface foam and dense lacing.

s: Nothing other than a single hint of vinegar.

t: Rather medicinal malt. Grassy and a bit spicy later. Some bitterness lingers at the sides of the tongue.

m: Medium.

o: Fortunately neither the initial hints of vinegar nor the medicinal tinge lasted. However, this "Scottish Ale" did not offer much other flavor..
