I found this beer to be fairly average. There was nothing wrong with it; but nothing really right with it either. In spite of the name I found the color to be appropriate for a Scottish Ale (the advertised varietal). It was a deep copper color with a poor head but nice lacing on the glass.

The taste was a bit hoppy and true to the variety but I kept waiting for something more. The taste was not as forward as I think a Scottish Ale should be and the aftertaste was non existent.

Your time might be better spent with something else from their beer menu.
