A- deep amberesque, almost Kodachrome in its beauty.

S- heavenly, flowers tickiling my nose, a wafting of spice.

T- pleasing, very pleasing. Fruits, malts, perfection in a brew. Superb for sipping, no bitter aftertaste, clean finish.

M- smoooth.

O- one of my favorites from Three Floyd's. But with 3F it's difficult not to love their creativity. Excellent brew all the way around.

Of all the scottish ales i have had tue pleasure of trying this is by far the best. It has a beautiful caramel color with a lovely lick head. Once you smell this beer you will be yurning to get a taste. The powerful and almost overwhelming taste is so good that i could drink it daily.
Absolute best scottish style ale

Excellent, Smooth. Wonderful tasting brew from Three Floyds. It is one of the best beers that I have tried overall. I highly recommend it if you can get your hands on it, as it can be quite hard to get from what my local beverage store said. Worth the price, but it is fairly expensive. Keep in mind you are getting a high quality beer.

I went out looking for gumballhead. I couldn't find it. So being a fan of Scottish Ale I purchased this guy.


A robustly malted brew with a oak woody after taste.

I drank it right from the bottle so my appearance review is not alcohale

Not sure of the acohhale content, but three made me dizzy.

Good flavor chuck for of malt, but not near the end of the spectrums extreme.(Imperial Stout)

Also beer is very refreshing after a hard day at the office.
