Dark brown color, little bit of Amber shade threw the light. Smells good. Roasted malt, caramel bit of coffee. Tastes good nice and sessionable, not gonna feel this. Toffee, roasted favors. Overall, I love sun King. Love their year round session beers. This one is another I really enjoy. Buy more of this NYD.

Enjoyed from the can in a snifter via a friend at work who oddly enough shares my same last name---

Thanks Justin!

This Scottish ale pours a beautiful dark reddish mahogany with a quickly dissipating head of foam that leaves a thin ring and little lacing. Nose of brown sugars, bread crust, subtle hops, and light caramel. Flavors surpass the nose with lightly toasted bread and sweet caramel, mingling with subtle grain and brown sugars that fade to a light herbal hop note mixed with cream. Solid for the style with a clean lightly creamy finish and moderate carbonation that ends slightly dry. Quenching and delicious.

A first for me from this brewery, and so far a winner.

Cheers

Tastes like something that came out of your drugged uncle's overpumped bladder.

With all the hype surrounding this beer, I have to say that I was disappointed. It looks great in a glass but when compared with other beers of this style it completely falls flat with zero finish. I almost feel like this beer is searching for an excuse. Not enough carbonation during the process or something.

I was told to try this beer while on business trip. It was sold to me as the next great beer, It was suppose to be promising, with the potential to make it big. But once it came time to compare it with other beers of outstanding quality, it fell flat on it's face. The first half of the beer left no positive impression on me, it performed mediocre at best. I forced my way through it and when I got down the the second half that's when I decided to the throw in the towel as this beer was clearly out classed by better beers in the same league.

Shockingly, the expiration date on this beer was not in January.

It looks good, so if you like to stare at your beer rather than drink it... I guess it has that going for it. But taste and feel were both way too watery for my liking. Disappointing.

Was expecting a lot more from this. Solid brown color, promising. But it was weak and not very Scottish. May go well with haggis, but that's about it. As someone with Scots background, clan MacBrady, Wee Mac did not leave me feeling very patriotic. Won't say much more except the aftertaste left something to be desired. More like something bracken from a muir.
