Pours a clear brownish-copper with some brighter orange edges. There is about a finger of off-white head that dissipates pretty quickly. Nose is pleasantly malty. The taste is also malty, but the body is a touch light for the style. This is a very drinkable offering that is enjoyable, but not quite true to style.

Presentation: Very cool bottle in the traditional Thirsty Dog K-9 style with eye-catching graphics and font. Label gives IBU info and ABV info, a small description of the beer, web info, and a bit of brewery info.

Appearance: Poured out of its 12oz bottle into a 16oz English Pint. Pours out a deep orange amber color that has just a slight haze to it. An aggressive pour lead to a 3 finger off white fluffy foam head of of a medium airy density. Excellent lacing. Head retention was 4min 58sec before fading to a thick airy coating and ring.

Smell/Aroma: Smell is of sweet tasted caramel malts along with a slightly bready yeasty aroma. Hints of spiced fruit also hits the nose.

Flavor/Taste: Taste starts out very bready with a slight fruitiness that turns to a toasted caramel malt flavor before finishing with a bit of a bitterness along with a toasted bread flavor. A nice toasty aftertaste is experienced.

MouthFeel/Drinkability: Medium bodied and smooth with a slightly below average carbonation. Very drinkable, even chug-able.

Overall/Comments: A very good Scottish Ale that is extremely tasty and smooth. Highly recommend trying this! Classified as a Scottish Ale @ 5.2% ABV. Consumed 4-13-13
