Great beer, color was amber with good head. Aftertaste was pleasant, with a hint of hops. Smell was little hoppy but not over bearing. Nice conversation beer, very pleasing beer. also beer was served in a good atmosphere at brewery. very happy with beer and brewery. Nice collection of bobble heads. Overall great beer and you need to try it at the brewery.

First had: on tap at Nodding Head, Philly, PA

Didn't really care for this. Pretty bland. Looked okay on the pour: slightly hazy copper-amber color, with a small off-white head. Dark sugars on the aroma and slightly phenolic. Sickeningly sweet to the taste, malty, caramel, medicinal quality...kind of unpleasant. Light-medium mouthfeel, and a bit watery and lacking in flavor, especially for a Scotch ale. Not very exemplary of the style--missing that alcohol kick, and flavor in general--and not very drinkable.

look: 3.5 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 2.5 | feel: 3 | overall: 2.5

Served in a standard pint glass. Deep red with slightly brown hints. Very little head that was a bit fizzy -- plenty of carbonation, it just didn't form a head.

Smell was nice and malty, plenty of caramel sweetness, maybe a hint of plums, too. No real hops in the aroma

Taste was nice at first with the malt and caramel hitting you first followed by some bitterness to balance it out. However, it finished with a metallic aftertaste that I did not enjoy.

I found the mouthfeel to be overcarbonated. This is normally a low carbed beer. Too much; it distracted from the malty richness. I didn't really want another after the first.

Served on cask in a straight sided pint glass

Pours a dark ambercopper color, with a thin white head

The nose is malty, a bit dry with a hint of spice, some sweetness in there too. I am excited

A bit malt, sweet without being too sweet, caramel and a bit of hop too

Sessionable, no hint of alcohol, just a refreshing beer

enjoyable - one to sit on all day
