This is the beer that turned a friend of mine away from the death-grip of Bud Light. He just loved this beer which initially scared him with the dark brown, slightly copper color, thick creamy had and bubble action of Guinness. Then he bucked up and tasted it. The smile and raised eyebrows on his face is a memorable sight. He just loved it. Drank it quite fast actually and wanted another. Not too bitter, not too dark tasting, just enough ale flavor to win him over. I like it a lot too, and ask for it in finer beer establishments, but sadly have only found it in the eastern US, so far. Thanks Balhaven!

A: Very clear deep amber color with a moderate creamy white head that settles to a layer of bubbles. Great lacing on the glass as you drink.
S: Bready, nutty, some toffee and other roasted barley sweetness. Light fruit esters as well.
T: Fresh brown bread, toffee, caramel, light esters of cherry like flavor, mild hop bitterness to keep the sweetness from totally running away. Mild earthy hop flavor as well. The finish is on the dry side and sweet.
M: Medium body with tiny crisp carbonation and a dry finish. No warming from alcohol.
O: Very clean and fresh tasting with some slight estery flavors and low on the smoky flavors with this Scottish Ale. Well done and easy to drink! I would get this again.
