3.76/5  rDev +5.6%
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

I have had this beer on tap, and it was very enjoyable.
One of my favorite dinner beers with pub food.
Rate a 4 +/- if you can find on tap.

From the can, it is horrible!
Little taste, what notes you get are very tinny and not enjoyable.
Rate a 2 +/- from the tin can.

Sun King needs to go to bottles, as the can does not cut the mustard.

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.
