The beer pours a hazy amber color with a towering offwhite head that slowly fades to lacing. The aroma is pretty bad. It has a spoiled/sat beer scent that's fruity and loaded with sourness. There seems to be ample malt aroma here with little hop character. The taste is equally bad. It's slow going down and not at all appealling. It's on the lighter side for a Scottish ale. It has a dark amber ale feel with some light peated character. The mouthfeel is not that impressive. It is a medium bodied beer with way too much CO2. This beer has obviously sat for some time, but regardless it's not in line with a traditional Scottish ale. I would like to try this on tap, fresh to really appreciate it, or not.

Picked up a single at the Party Source in Syracuse, NY. How this beer got there, I have no idea. Poured into a pint glass, it's a slightly hazy dark amber with a tall off-white head that slowly fades.

Something is wrong here, this beer smells like feet. There are caramel malt elements to the aroma, but if it smells like one thing, it's feet. Sweaty, caramel-covered feet.

The taste? Guess what - more feet, but with sour lemon, indicating there's probably something rotten here. If I find another bottle I'll try it again and re-review, but as this stands, nearly everything has gone wrong.

Pours a clear, brown copper color with a small head.

Aroma is caramel with sweet berries. A hint of alcohol.

Flavor has quite a caramel base, with some black cherries. There's a hint of spices, maybe some ginger. Not very complex beyond these few ingredients that I could pick up.

Mouthful is too watery. Not enough carbonation, or maybe just too watery.

Quite drinkable, even without a crisp finish.

I've had better Scottish Ales, but this is a valiant attempt. If I was stuck in Appleton, WI, I'd drink this at their bar.

This beer won the Silver Medal "Scottish-Style Export Ale" at the North American Beer Awards, 2006.
