I poured this from a can into a clear teardrop glass. It pours a nice brown with a light brown one finger white head. I really like it. It is, in fact, "smooth and malty." I had a friend pick this up for me at the brewery since they don't sell it in my market, or else I would seek it out.

Aroma is malty beer, but nothing that reminds me of Scotch Ale. Flavor does deliver a little in that way. Body, despite being malty, is still a touch thin. An ok beer. I'll enjoy this one, but not get another.

Very smooth, but only a mild maltiness to it's flavor profile; it definitely left me wanting more in that sense. Very easy to see, however, how this is the base for the amped-up malt-bomb that is Wee Muckle.

Good with pizza. Glad to see a big chain carrying local craft.

Taster from a can share at a bar. Not much to say. Mediocre in every way. Just didn't hit any notes I like in my scotch ales. Comparing to dirty bastard or kilt lifter, this is just a muddy nothing. Appreciate the taste but I will pass on this one

From a 16 ounce can into a pint glass. Coppery brown ice tea color. Thin to nonexistent head in keeping with style. Malt and bread on nose. No peat notes. In the mouth malt and diacytal. Thin. Overall barely recognizable as a Scotch ale.

look: 3.5 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 4 | overall: 3.75

Appearance: Pours clear and copper with a modest head that fritters away quickly; minimal lacing action

Smell: Caramel, fruit, grain and a whiff of nut

Taste: Caramel forward, with some nut and grain flavors building; modestly fruity and earthy, through the middle, with a slightly sweet finish

Mouthfeel: Medium body with moderate carbonation

Overall: This beer sure has got its haters but I found it rather enjoyable, even though it is more of a hybrid rather than a true Scottish Ale; not worthy of such poor reviews, to my palate
