look: 3.5 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4

Pale amber/bronze, medium off-white head steadily-slowly shrinks to thin ring.

Aroma is bright fruity grain, dried fruits, dry bread crust, dry herbs & hay, honey, hint of vanilla.

Taste is nice creamy caramelized sweet bread crust, light juicy zestiness, toffee, vanilla, light woodiness. It’s a bit sweet with little bitterness, but is very good, enjoyable, with a little complexity and nice character.

Served on tap at Summit's Wayside Tavern 4/19/12. Reviewed from notes.

(Appearance) Color is a light golden amber, clear, with no head to be seen, but a light cream tone ring of carbonation and a modest level of carbonation trickling up the sides of the glass. Flat, headless delivery is Not very impressive in terms of overall appearance. 3

(Smell) Aromas are light toasted malt and caramel flavors, sweet and clean in delivery. Creamy sweetness with a touch of alcohol tinge and fruit to the nose. Pleasing and balanced aroma. 4

(Taste) A sweet mouthful of nice caramel malt and a tart mild malt and hop backbone makes up the majority of flavor to this brew. Overall pleasant and smooth blending of flavors. 3.5

(Mouthfeel) Creamy smooth flavor with a hint of light carbonation pair with the malty character of this brew. The end result is pretty good. 3.5

(Overall) A pretty nice, if not overrated scotch ale. For the right price it's probably worth a taste (and a free glass, in some circumstances!) Ive had both better and worse scotch ales, so this ones pretty middle-of-the-road. 3.5

A - beautiful golden colour, light head
S - sweet, slightly oaky smell
T - fruity, sweet and wonderful taste. A great beer with a complex flavour.
M - smooth
O - a great beer worthy of several more.

When I can find this beer, it is a must drink. Recently on a Belgian beer tour, no one had heard of this beer and it's such a shame because it so wonderful.
