4.83/5 rDev +27.1%
look: 4.5 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 5 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 5
Appearance: Pours a tan-auburn color with a decent off-white one-finger head. Little to no lacing. Mild carbonation, looks very enticing. Head dissipates to a thin but strong layer of foam on top of the brew.
Smell: Mild floral hoppiness. A substantial whiff of caramel maltiness as well. Nothing nasty, nothing overwhelming. Really good.
Taste/Mouthfeel: Gentle sweetness with a near-perfect caramel chewiness. Very light and bright hop flavoring, and maybe a touch of lavender or something? Really, really good.
Drinkability: I could easily make this a session beer. Goes down smoothly, tastes great, would go with just about anything.
I have to admit I had low expectations for this brew. However, I may have found a new favorite style! GO SCOTTISH ALES!

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.
