This is the 2nd beer named Scorpion that I've had, and neither was all that impressive, although this was better than the British session lager. It was perfectly drinkable, I was just disappointed because the label built it up so much. This tried to get a bit more badass, with the following statement on the label: Beware, it is known as "The Ale That Stings". What? If you're going to make a claim like that, please back it up. And don't you know it's not cool to give yourself (or your beer) a nickname? Label lays claim to 6 hop additions, but I think they were the same kind of hop. It needed a little more maltiness to give it some body. As it was, it was like really hoppy water. Maybe they can rename it "The Hoppy Water That Stings."
