OMG that's just horrible, I'm pretty sure I'll have to pour this out.

Damned kid at the store talked me into buying some Traquair House Ale and I hate it!

I'll probably never try a Scottish Ale again, using this as a guide, their ales are as atrocious as their whiskeys.

Damn you Scotland!

Before you write off Scotch Ales totally give Oskar Blue's Old Chubb a try.

Writing off an entire nation's beer heritage based on the experience of one bottle is a bit extreme. It's possible the beer was badly stored or transported. A thousand things can happen to a beer between brewer and your glass.

I used to say Bourbon was awful and then I discovered several fine, well made Bourbons that made me eat my words.

And BTW, cheap Scotch can be atrocious. Good, well-aged single malt is a thing of beauty beyond words. If you've only had some cheap blended Scotch then you haven't had the real stuff.

Founders Dirty Bastard is also good. Try a few others.

Probably the best Scotch I've bought would be either Balvenie Double Wood, or Glenmorangie 12 Year. Obviously there are more highly respected scotches, but these I believe are respectable bottles.

I simply don't like Scotch, it's the smokey, peaty flavor that gets me. Ack! I have a few friends that appreciate both when they're over. Heathens both.

Now, I do like bourbon, might have to pour a glass of Bookers to get the taste of the Traquair Ale off my pallet.

I may try some other Scotish Ales, but I'll not be buying this abomination again.

Scotch is good but bourbon is delicious! I have a stiffy for Woodford Reserve at the moment.

Maybe you just don't like the style? I you're into hop bombs - this will not be your cup if tea!
