look: 2.5 | smell: 2.5 | taste: 2.5 | feel: 2.5 | overall: 2.5

Poured pretty damn aggressively from a 12 oz bottle into a typical pint glass. No date on the label. Bought it on a whim this evening.

A: Orange-tinted dark amber with an anemic 1/2 finger of fizzy off-white head. Poor retention. Surface film at 30 seconds. Pretty clear.

S: Sweet malt. Light, indistinct fruit. Rubber?

T: Roasted malt sweetness up front with a touch of hop bitterness on the finish. Semi-dry to somewhat sweet. Some tang in the aftertaste. This seems to quickly replace the flash of initial flavor. Faint traces of toffee, dark chocolate linger. Half-way through now and a bitter alcohol flavor seems to dominate.

M: Moderate carbonation. Relatively thin body for the style and flavor profile. Better out of the bottle.

O: Wow, this went downhill fast. Started off tolerable and really just nose dived into unpleasant off-scents and off-flavors. I'm not dumping it or anything - let's be real - but not a whole lot of redeeming factors. The one I had directly from the bottle seemed better.

look: 3 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 3.5

Poured into dimpled mug. Coppery brownish red, translucent, with a small fizzy off-white head that fades quickly into some patchy foam on top, with sluggish bubbles rising and moving off to the sides.
Smell is sweet toasted malt, nuttiness, and very light earthy hop scents adding some crispness.
Taste is simple; nutty crackery caramel malt, slight leafy hops and a slight herbal bitterness over the wet finish.
Mouthfeel is thin and slick, and the low carbonation is a nice tickle here and there.
Overall, a simple and serviceable scottish ale. A good beer for people who love malt flavors, although I usually prefer their stronger scotch brethren.
