2.88/5 rDev -18.9%
A- Amber- white head that completely dissipates
S- very faint. A bit grainy. Caramel hops, vanilla
T- Grainy, malty, some sweetness. Don't know if my palate is just shot, but it just does not have any real flavor that is noticeable
M- carbonated, light body, flavor quickly evaporates
O- just not a very good beer. Will not drink again

Out of a chilled bottle the beer was a clear amber color with lots and lots of rising carbonation. The khaki colored head retained well and left spots of lacing down to the end. The aroma was of slightly toasted malt, nuts, a little earth and bread along with a slightly musty note. The flavors were nice, a blend of sweet malt, citrus, apricot, a touch of figs and a caramel malt finish. The mouthfeel was smooth, the body medium and the carbonation frothy. Very easy to drink and quite pleasant though not as assertive as many beers of the same ilk.

Appearance: Rich deep Red/Honey Amber in color. Poured creamy off white head 1/2" thick, quite bubbly.
Smell: Both hop and malty notes, slightly smokey smell.
Taste: Tastes of light hop notes and smooth malt finish.
Mouthfeel: Very smooth on the palate, light on tongue, heavier on sides and back of mouth.
Overall: This beer is on the lighter side of the Scottish Red Ale style. Not as smooth as a Killians per say. Reminded me more of a Lager with red coloring with a hint of smoked malt. Definitely a beer to try. Just a tad more carbonation bite than most Red Scot Ales.

A: This poured a clear dark copper with moderate light tan head.
S: It smelled like copper hops and nutty malt, with some caramel and oak and a bit of butterscotch.
T: It tasted like nutty malt with copper hops and sweet earthy caramel and butterscotch. It had a very clean and mild bittersweet aftertaste.
M: It was fairly thick with moderate carbonation. Nice full body.
D: This was a decent Scottish ale, but not in the top tier. The scent and taste were good not great. The body was great and it was easy to drink. Not bad but not memorable.

Bottle poured into a pint glass.
A: The beer has a great deep burnt red/brown color with a nice tan head that lingers for a short period of time. This beer appears to be bottle conditioned as well and I have only had ABC beers a few times so I am not sure if this is their norm or not. Either way, there is yeast in the bottom so try not to drink that.
S: This beers aroma is very malt and candy sweet. That's what I was expecting and it fits the style.
T: The taste is mostly malty and very sweet. There is a little bit of a stale cigarette style flavor that hits me about half way through and then travels back into malts (I have noticed a similar taste in ABC's IPA.) The beer tastes kind of like a musty basement.
M: This is pretty standard and average.
O: This is nothing too spectacular, but a good beer nonetheless. I probably wouldn't purchase this, but I sure as hell would drink it if someone was giving it to me (which is what happened in this case.)
