from a growler filled at the brewery a couple weekends ago

A - pours with a thin wisp of loose, slightly fluffy white foam, quickly settling to a few thin floating islands and a ring around the glass. the beer is quite clear, deep copper/red in color.

S - faint hints of toasted bread, dark caramel, roasted walnuts, and campfire smoke, finished with a bit of earth and grass.

T - again, toasted dark wheat bread dominates from the front to back, joined in halfway through each sip by sweet caramel. finishes with the smoke chiming in, alongside a touch of earthy hops. well balanced.

M - carbonation is maybe a tad sharp for such a light bodied and mild beer. finishes slightly "wet", leaving a crisp and pleasant aftertaste behind.

O - a solid session beer with a good deal of flavor for something sitting around 3.2%. this growler is my brewing partner tonight, and will go down easily and pleasantly. cheers to the original brewer and winner!

Tartanic Scottish Ale has a dark brown body with some red highlights. The tan cap looks pretty good, solid for a cask pour. Retention and lacing are both pretty good.

The aroma is fairly mild, with bits of bread and caramel and a slight hop bite if I really sniff.

The flavor is similarly mild, which shouldn't be a surprise considering the fairly low ABV of this one. The focus of the beer is dark bread flavors with light undertones of caramel flavored malt. The finish has a light hop bite to it, bringing bitterness and some earthy flavors.

Pretty good feel to it, with a nice amount of heft and a smooth, creamy body.

I really enjoy the East End Session beers series, but I have to admit that I didn't love this one. I guess it is tough to be disappointed by not Loving a beer, especially because Tartanic is still pretty solid.

Serving type: cask
