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

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.
