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.
