12 oz bottle into a glass
A: Pours a red/brown with no head, could be because it’s been kept in the fridge.
S: Some Scotch smell, more mixed with a traditional malt smell.
T: Pretty good, I’m not a huge fan of Scotch ales and I can’t drink scotch or bourbon in general but the malt is really sweet and delicious. Almost want to say brown sugar like but not quite.
M: The malt just goes even further and coats my mouth and throat.
O: Great regular beer, definitely to buy again. A (-) range
