caramel colored brown coming out of the bottle. Some nice, light ruby colored tones mixed in throughout as well really did a nice job of lightning it up a bit. Some haze, but pretty good clarity. A nice one inch foam head of white then came over the top and settled down slowly, leaving behind a broken crown and some decent side glass lace.

The aroma was totally malt driven as you would expect, with lots of nice caramel and earthy tones. Nice hints of grain and a touch of almost a raisin or fig like flavor as well. Very nice, but a touch on the light side would be my only complaint with it. The flavor largely followed suit, not being as sweet as I thought it would be, there were several touches of fruit, and a ton of grain in the flavor. The caramel malt driven back coming through very nicely as well. Your classic scotch ale flavor here, with not a whisper of alcohol anywhere to be found.

brown color, just a tinge amber i would say. creamy looking off white head.

low malt sweetness. low roasted malt aroma. and low caramelization aroma.

initially sweet maltiness that goes dry, but the flavor of malts builds. a little roasted malt flavor and a little caramel flavor. low hop bitterness. the flavor of malt lingers. a fairly complex malt character. no ester flavor.

medium body. medium carbonation. dry finish.

this is a nice malty sessionable beer.
